Re: Help on Front Wheel Marker Lights Identification

Use a little clear silicone. It'll hold, yet easily clean off next time. Great Idea. Now that I've lost one and they are so hard to come by I'm a little paranoid but I definitely don't want to do something that would be very hard to reverse in case one of the led bulbs or wiring were to go out.

Re: 1983 GL1100 Self Cancelling Turn Signals shut off immediately

Are you running LED light bulbs and a led flasher unit? It will shorten the signal to the bulbs in both time and distance. Went to two regular 1157 bulbs (more ampredge draw) amber in the front to see if that would solve the problem and nope no change. Next time the shelter is off changing to the re...

Re: Tire howl during turns

From 491's to touring elite, or it seems all these tires have the the howling on the lean angle. Dunlops are all I have ever used and you just get use to it. Tightens you up a little.

Re: Speedo and tach replacement bulbs

yes you are right,the 83 lists the #57 in the owners manual I have plenty since the 194s seem to fit better in the wedge socket. Who ever needs the 57s let me know, ship free and the bulbs also.

Re: Cam belt question....

OK got it. Page 7-14 in the 1100 service manual should help you get on track. Be sure to back off valve adjustments to prevent bending of the valves on rotation.``````````````

I have 5 bulbs burnt out on my gl1100 in the speedometer and tach what bulbs dies it take and where do I get them.
It is a 194 bulb available at your local parts store. Silvana has one at 1.5 ,but they do come in different wattage's. By the way did you check your fuse?

Re: Does anyone know if......

Glad to see you buy OEM especially on the thermostat. Warm up times are quicker and it is the right size. Be sure the little hole is at the top. If they fit other hondas good at least they will be available.

Re: Won't start

Raise up on the brake pedal and see if the brake light goes off. Above the brake pedal is the rear brake light switch. Might have to adjust the switch. also check the front brake lever switch. Did you test the headlight from another power source or was it operating at one time?
