Anti freeze leak !

After the bike has been sitting for 1-2 days there are 2 small pools of anti freeze /rad fluid right under the engine on either side (under plugs) could this be head gasket or water pump . Gl11 00 82 ...could this also be a symptom of losing power under load .thanks

Re: Gl1100 starter aftermarket

As stevenrikki said ,I bought a ricks 4 brush starter motor for my gl1 100 a few years ago still works great ,only need to touch the button ...you may need a longer lead from the starter as the connection is at the back (towards front of bike)
