83 GL1100 Aspencade Left Front Brake Rotor

Sorry if this is a double post. Tried posting once but it isn't showing on the board. I am pretty sure that the left front rotor on my 83 aspencade is warped. I get a bad pulse when using the hand brake. I know that the rotors for the left front and right front are different. From what i have found ...

Re: can I replace floor boards with pegs ? gl1100

They are still listed on sites like that, but not available. I have checked a few. Even the one you just linked to, when you add it to the cart it says "obsolete", but thanks. I have found a few on Ebay. Just figured I would check on here to see if anyone wanted rid of some before I messed with Ebay...

Re: can I replace floor boards with pegs ? gl1100

Thanks. I am just looking for the fronts. Just to me clear, I am looking for the mounts and the pegs, not just the rubber pegs. I am looking to remove my floor boards and go back to just pegs.

Re: Acceleratin Problem 3000-4000 RPMs

That is a good idea. It has been running better since I did the fuel filter and valve clearances. Probably more the fuel filter than the valves. I need to get some gauges and tubing to do the sync.

Re: 1983 GL1100 Apsencade Timing Belts

Thanks guys!!!! I found gates online a few places for very cheap ($11-$15). Going to call a few local places to see if the stock them so that maybe I can make the swap this weekend. I hate having to wait for things to ship. :-)

1983 GL1100 Apsencade Timing Belts

I have been doing some digging around on here and a few other sites for possible non Honda (Gates or NAPA) timing belts for my wing. Everywhere I look people are saying that the honda numbers is/are #14400-371-04/14400-371-14 and that the replacements are NAPA 250274 and Gates T274. When I checked a...

Re: Acceleratin Problem 3000-4000 RPMs

I swapped the fuel filter and adjust the valve cleariences yesterday. While doing the fuel filter the vacuum line on the left side came off up above the carburetor because there was no clamp. I don't know if it was already off or just loose so i got it secured again as well. After replacing the fuel...

Acceleratin Problem 3000-4000 RPMs

I have an 83 GL1100 Aspencade. Lately I have noticed poor acceleration between 3000 and 4000 rpms when I am over half throttle. It bogs down and has no power. If i stay under about half throttle acceleration is fine. The closer I get to 4000 rpms the better it gets. When it bogs down, I can smell so...

Front Brake Pad Recommendations & Questions

What brand of Brake Pads do you guys recommend for an 83 GL1100 Aspencade. I have been checking my normal OEM parts places online (HondaPartsHouse, etc) and they don't seem to have them or be able to get them anymore. I assume a dealer is going to be the same. 1. Does anyone know of a place to get H...

I have an 83 GL1100 Aspencade 1. The past few mornings, when I get on the bike to go to work. I grab the clutch and take it down off the center stand and when it comes down, it feels like the clutch is still engaged. When I hit the starter the bike jerks forward slightly like it is in gear. Once it ...

Re: How to remove and replace your water pump

I did replace the gasket. I also replaced the O-ring between the hose end piece and the actual water pump cover. Either the new gasket isn't sealing, or maybe I got a little ruff getting the old gasket off. I rode it to work today. I am going to check it after work, and when I get home tonight to se...

Re: How to remove and replace your water pump

I did this job over the weekend. First of all, great instructions!!! They helped tremendously. One note, if you have an 83 aspencade, you don't have to disconnect all of the air lines to and electrical connections to pull the false tank, at least I didn't on mine. I do have a question about your blo...

Re: Replacement Panel(s) - 1983 GL1100A

Thanks Kim. If I do it, I will probably get one with a detachable face plate and solder wires to the contacts on them. I have seen a bunch of guys doing it online in cars, since I saw your post and started doing some research on it.

Kim, Brilliant idea on the radio. I have been trying to figure out how to get a stereo up in that location, but all of the units are too deep. How did you do the faceplate relocation? Does that unit have a detachable face plate that let you solder onto those connections or did you completely separat...

I really haven't started looking in to mine yet. Just trying to figure out other things to check before I start dropping money on things.

Re: 83 GL1100A - power issue

The fuse was broken but it was still barely touching when it was in the holder. IMG-20110607-00058_SM.jpg I cleaned up the contacts and wired in the 30 amp automotive fuse. IMG-20110607-00057_SM.jpg I notched out the door so that it would still close and the tab would still hold the plug in place. I...

Re: 83 GL1100A - power issue

Thanks for the reply. I looked at this last night and I think that may be where the problem is. There was a lot of corrosion on one of the contacts and the fuse looks pretty brittle. If I choose to convert it to a blade fuse, should I just wire on to the terminals in the fuse box or tap the wires be...
