Hey folks. I found out I have a pretty bad leak on my rear GL1100 left shock. If I moved over to a set of after market shocks that weren't the air assist- would it affect the air pressure in the front forks? I guess I'm asking are the air-ride shocks connected to both front and rear? Or are they sep...

Re: Clicking noise around the calipers

david,

Thanks.

General brakes question

Hey guys. I'm curious, does the fitment of gl1100 dual piston calipers fit the dimensions of single piston calipers? Need to replace mine, seeing if one could fit the other.

Bike wouldn't start.

Hey I'm new to this bike and I'm really trying to figure this thing out. Rebuilt the starter and the bike did great. A few weeks ago it had trouble starting. Found out my battery was toast so I replaced that. The bike started up great over the last few days until today. After work the bike was doing...

1980 GL1100 to Naked

Hey folks, New GL1100 rider here from Richmond, VA. After doing some rides I've decided I want to take off the front fairings. They're all scratched and really they're more of a hazard than a luxury. I've been looking at 7'' headlamps (12v 55/60w I believe?) and also trying to figure out which turn ...
