Re: Engine wont turn off

Change the belts ASAP.
Also write the date and mileage on the inside of the belt covers.

Re: Fairing grounds??

Go to the "manual" at the top of any page. Follow the wiring diagram.

The plug by the left knee is where all the fairing wires lead to, including the ground.

Most parts are interchangeable on all gl1100. The tires and brakes are a little different on the 4 models.

NAPA # 7733 Hose.

Take the hose you cut off the bike and cut this NAPA hose from your old hose for length. You have both the upper and lower hose

Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

If the pipes are already off--replace.
If not -do not replace.
Ride the bike and listen for any leak at the headers.

Was your water propeller plastic or metal? If metal someone has already replaced it. You should not get any wiggle from the prop.

Welcome to the forum from Ohio

#1 You are correct.

Change out the brake fluids. Clean up the brake pistons.

A lot of us run 2 oz. of ATF in the gas tank.

Re: BATTERY CELLS GOING DRY

I would take the battery to where you bought it. See if different battery will do the same. If it does then yes you have a problem.

Re: How many accessory switches do you need?

I have 2 switches.
One for the driving lights--Which I never turn off.
2) Switch to turn my back end light off. It blinks when a car is on my a** . I turn it off during the day so it doesn't blink.

Re: Oil leak and burning oil

After you clean the engine good. Take some white foot powder and put on the engine. When it leaks it will leave a trail to the leak.

Re: 83' Gl1100 electrical dead after jumping

Take spark plugs out one at a time and see if they are firing.
Sounds like a bad coil.

If it turns out it is the coils I recommend putting on a c5 ignition. Coils for 83 are 35 yrs old.
