For whatever reason you fail to grasp that point.
I further explained that the bulb was EXACTLY the same size as an H4.

YOU failed to see THAT, and continue to post irrelevant material.

I'm done, no more advise from me, on anything.

Pointless. This why this board is so helpful. No one posts unneeded commentary that does not advance the discussion. I HAVE this exact LED lamp.

Re: H4 LED replacement bulb

The LED H4 that I used is no longer than the stocker. There is very little room in the Apsencade fairing for ANY extra length, but this bulb fits and works well.
So, I stand by my earlier statement, that this bulb will fit and work well.

But, I am only one guy, and the naysayers outnumber me.

Don't think you will get one to fit inside a stock headlight bucket. Yet, as I stated, I have one in a stock headlight bucket. In a stock fairing. With good results. Real life experience, including the fact that I JUST got home, and it's Waaaaay after dark. Even saw the deer well before panic. Jeff...

Re: switching 2 screw reservoir for 4 screw reservoir

You may need only the diameter of the bore, which is cast in the M/C. Most master cylinders use very similar cups, so do not worry overmuch.

Re: switching 2 screw reservoir for 4 screw reservoir

The one thing that matters on M/C braking systems is the bore size. Nothing else, from a function standpoint. However, they have to match exactly. So, no matter what bike it's from, if the bore sizes are the same, it'll work the same. Further, all master cylinders that I've seen, have the bore size ...

Yup, take them away. The catch?? I don't want the hassle of shipping (and won't, I'll toss 'em).
All from an '83 Aspencade. Pics tell the story. I've got more, lots more.

Re: Searching for a Rear Brake Master Cylinder

Worked on the rear master for a couple hours today. Brought it back, wasn't as bad as it looked.
So, it's a good master, all good internals, bit of rust on the pushrod and a 5mm tear on the boot. Otherwise, it works as it should.
$50 plus shipping.

Interesting theft-recovery idea.

I just stripped my parts bike, and found an interesting tidbit:
The PO, possibly the original owner, has stamped his initials, and "GL11" onto the brake pedal arm. Unless Honda stamps "GBB GL11" onto brake parts, that is.

Re: aspencade digital cluster to replace gl1100 analog

Some of this depends upon how good are you at fabricating, and more depends upon how good you are at automotive electrical.
Obviously, I have experience (look at my avatar), and I have all the parts (save a good speedo drive and sensor).
My advice, don't even think about it.

Re: Hard starting when engine is warm

Check that the fuel is not leaving the carburettors. Long cranking could indicate empty carbs. Normally carburetted engines start nearly instantly.
