Re: Clutch removal GL1100

No harm in diving in. Its not beyond the average ability. Briefly the clutch serves to separate spinning friction discs allowing the gears to disengage. The separation is accomplished by overcoming the spring pressure compress the spinning discs against each other. If the discs are worn too thin the...

Re: Clutch removal GL1100

Sure its possible. How does the clutch linkage work without it? The two items in the diagrams above would need to physically transmit pressure without the intervening pin.

Re: Clutch removal GL1100

I interchanged 83 and 81 covers because I thought they were identical. It was easier, so I thought, to clean the cover of the 81 replacement before removing the 83 to replace the slipping discs. I did not observe the difference in covers and rod initially. When I bolted it back together it was jamme...

Re: Clutch removal GL1100

I looked through the parts box and the bent pin has been tossed. You will need an exact measurement to fabricate it but there is not much to it as it physically fills the space. Rounding both ends of a 1/4 or 5/16 rod should work. Likely some one on the forum has the piece and contribute the dimensi...

Re: Clutch removal GL1100

The pin is there somewhere.

If It is really, truly and sincerely lost, not merely lost, I will endeavour to find the one I took out and measure and photograph it.

Re: trailer or hitch rack

Love the concept. The trailer is sprung, bonus. I think the issue of tongue weight is somewhat irrelevant given the max load per website. “The N-Line is 78″ long, 30″ wide and stands 27″ high. Inside dimensions are 42″ in length, 28″ in width and 21″ in height. It weighs 79 pounds empty, and its max...

Re: Trail braking

Approach the entry with a downshift and use compression braking limiting maximum front brake use preventing rear wheel skip. The rear wheel adds little to entry deceleration with largely compression engine braking. (This is where the slipper clutch helps.) Entering the corner. Keep the front brake o...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, especially as it feeds your vanity. Most of us have at some time or other fallen for looks. I admire the effort and execution more than the outcome.

I have a specific question that this august group may be able to answer. Firstly, speed rating. 168 mph +. Speed rating means exactly how fast does this tire run? Is there not a limit? Secondly, regarding land speed tire for 200 mph + . ( They are featherlight treadless.) Goodyear has a dragster fro...

You must, please, tell us about this bike. I heard it is top heavy. Does the boxer twin have the zip it is reputed to ha ve? How does it feel after an hour on the interstate?

Re: looking to get another bike

Tell me, please, when you purchase this, how it rides. I had thought of this last year but it seemed a bit top heavy. I could not get over the price and maintenance by BMW. I have no motorrad dealer here.

Let it sit until next weekend. You have all winter r&r.

Re: How to free up a starter sprague clutch

Almost certainly the sprague will catch. The clicking noise is because at the outset only one of the rollers catches but is inadequate to turn the motor. Once the starter spins, none of the rollers work as engineered. I found with the spark plugs removed the drag is negligible and the engine will tu...

If you start at lower levels the chain will be immersed and that may accomplish the task.

It is not clear from my recollection. Does the horizontal passes the oil drain plug?

Can you insert a transparent hose as a temporary fill gauge?

Many times I have learned to my embarassment that the starter is not affected by the kill switch.

Glad to be of service. Remember to pull the pugs and ensure the battery is positioned overflow “up”. I might kill the ignition to avoid sparking as the solvent may be flammable.
