Even if you find them on e-bay you would likely have to rebuild them too.

Re: Headlight connection after fairing removal

You will not use the weight. It is to counter weigh the fairing.
The plugs should be plug and play.

Now after finding a good link on cleaning the speedo, I'm going to give that a try before replacing.
Do you mind sharing the link you found?

Your light connection will be intact in the bucket of wires. No need to get another harness.

Re: Timing belt replacement

Crash bars do not need to be removed but they do need to be loose so you can get the cover out.
Engine does not need to be removed. Put the date and mileage on the inside of the cover so one knows when the belts were changed.

Re: aftermarket starter solenoids

I have used a couple of the ones you suggest. I finally figured what you did. They are junk. At least the ones I got.
I finally went and bought one from Mother Honda. No problem since.

Re: Spark Igniters

After 30+ yrs they get hot and melt. You can fill them with epoxy like every one else has had to do.
No these are not related.

Put the engine in 5th gear and have some one hold the brake down.

Re: heavy whitish smoke (both sides) GL1100A

Are you getting spark from the wire to the spark plug? If not check your coils. One could be cracked. Double check that your lines match up on the belts. One tooth off will give you some back firing, and clicking of the valves. Put 3-4 oz of atf in the gas tank and run. This will help clean the carb...

Re: Bolt size

I have ridden my 1100 for years without the 4 bolts for the seat. The seat is going no where when riding.
I also use only the 2 back bolts to keep the false tank on.

Re: '80 GL1100 STD/Vetters vs Interstate

If the vetters are in good shape then use them. Ride it a year or two and look at others wings you see in parking areas. You can then decide if you like the vetters or the honda. You can spend money then rather than now. If you like the Honda's you can switch them then. Just ride it with what you ha...

It looks like a quarter. You can put them in a parking meter.


The bolt does not belong to a gl1100.

Re: Starters

It doesn't cost that much to refurb. A new starter is expensive and could be the wrong size. Some are a jiggger longer and do not fit.
I take my starters to the alternator repair shop.
