The consumption of my bike is 5.0-6.5 lt/100km, according to the last 2 year records.
I've never gotten that kind of mileage! 5.0 l/100km works out to 56 mpg, 6.5 l/100km is 44 mpg.

I get 40-45 mpg, which is from 6.3 to 7.0 l/100 km.

So just got my GL1200 on the road after it has been sitting for over five years outside from the PO. I did a complete service on the bike and its up and running well. I am enjoying it. The issues I was having while I took it for its test ride was the fuel light was flashing on and off intermittentl...

Re: Aux input for the cassette deck ??? HELP!

It depends on how the aux circuit is incorporated. On my radio, I intercepted the preamp lines, and ran them through a relay. I can choose either the radio/tape audio, or my audio, depending on the relay. This relay is then switched using a switch (or in my case, an electronic controller that I buil...

Re: winter storage

Unless you have water precipitated out of the fuel, you should be OK putting a good stabilizer in it (I use Marine Sta-Bil, the green stuff, and double the dose) and leaving the fuel in it. Do run the engine with the petcock turned off until it quits, so you don't leave fuel to evaporate in the carb...

Re: Gorilla Glue

It definitely needs water to activate. It foams up to fill any voids, and puts out a bit of heat as it cures. But it is incredibly strong, an excellent bond.

I left the hotel at 9:20, and saw detdrbuzzard (William) packing his bike up getting ready to ride. I decided...hey, 555 is right along my route, why not ride it from bottom to top?

You don't need a new engine. the shift forks can be replaced along with the shaft.
Correct, but the amount of labor a shop would charge to do this work far exceeds the cost of a new (used) engine.

If you can do the work yourself, and have the time, then yes, they can be replaced.

Re: Neutral Switch Wiring 81 GL1100 vs 83 GL1100A

I'm pretty sure the later switch with the multiple contacts for each gear bolts into the exact same place on the inside of the engine cover as the neutral switch did on the earlier bikes. Then just feeding the wires through that grommet should be the only other step taken. You will need a new gasket...

If I remember correctly??? It's been a while, 5 years, since I have ad a 1500.
The cruise will set below 45 mph on the 1500.
The cruise control on a GL1500 will engage at between 30 mph and 80 mph.
