Re: replacing stator

It is a total engine removal to replace the stator.
Most just do the poor boy conversion. No pulling the engine, More power than you will ever need, and easy to do.

Here is my link to doing it.

Re: How to fix stator wires on GL1100 - Three Yellow Wires

All 1100 have the dog bone fuse. It is next to the battery right side under the plastic lid. Open the lid and you will see it. Usually has a spare one in the lid which is also many years old.

Re: will any auto starters work on gl1100

I took my 1100 starter to a starter and alternator shop. He redid the guts and for a very low price. I think it was like $30.00. It worked like brand new.

Go with the 2 pistons. You will not have to change the rotors.

Re: changing out radio with new one

gray goes to right speaker.
white goes to left speaker.

Sierra electronics have told me that the tuners need adjusted to get the stations to be rec'd from time to time.

Re: head gasket

If you are talking about the covers for the rockers. Buy new bolts for the 4 holes and new rubbers.

After 2 new Honda seals, with gasket sealer, I still had oil on my boot.
Finally after replacing the bolts and rubber no more oil on the boot.

Re: electronics

No you are not wrong. My guess is that the main 30 amp dog bone may have bitten the dust, since you have nothing. It is located on the left side of bike next to the battery. Move the rubber boot off and look to see what the dog bone looks like. Check it with a volt meter. While you are there replace...
