I've replaced and fixed a lot of stuff. I'm super thankful for this community and all the help y'all have proved. Thank you!! So, my qu...

As I recall there is a three digit number right there on the helmet lock cylinder
Should be the same as ignition, obviously, one of them has been changed.

Also, there should only be the one, one was added?

I have purchased a 77 gl1000 came with extra parts. I have extra camshaft belts. What is the shelf life on these, if never installed and still in envelope they were shipped in?
For what a pair of belts cost, if you don't know, pitch them.

Belts are very cheap.

Ok how do I connect the points to the coils? There is 4 wires at the coils and only 2 at the points. Where cold I find some detailed info on this? I just don’t want to do it wrong.

Warmed fuel built up some pressure in the fuel tank.

The gas cap is supposed to vent excess pressure or vacuum, it might have become clogged. Try soaking the fuel cap in Seafoam for 24 hrs.... Bet that fixes it.
Vinegar is cheaper.

Any word on spoke wheels modification/ possiblity?

I have a Gl1000k3 and bought spoke wheels and I'm having brake issues: are the discs a different spacing? Are there other brackets is have to get? Or would the described modification work too?
The 78 setup is different from the 75-77.

Just a follow up post. While getting her back together I'd start her up and get the engine to temp. Now after doing some light for two weeks, the amount of smoking is getting less and less.

The perfect fix! 😂
Keep it on the center stand and it should never smoke.

Not that I do this.
