Re: HELP. gl1000 cranks but no starts. Ignition Coils Problems.

Interesting, I actually have a discussion going on in email with a guy that seems to know his stuff, and he just sent me an example (with basic math) that proves his point, and yours. interestingly on cars with kettering ignitions (points/coil/condenser) like older Fords (and likely other brands) ha...

Re: HELP. gl1000 cranks but no starts. Ignition Coils Problems.

Or use a Dodge Neon coil... one coil replaces both on a GW and it puts out a better spark than stock Honda coils. Costs about 20 bucks!

While there are several ways people have done ...

Re: 80 GL1100I ACCEL Ignition Coil

Neon coils are really great. They work so well that i have increased my plug gap from .035 to .045 and have a really smooth idle. Typical price is 15 to 25 bucks. if you really have to have Acell coil try this , ACCEL REPLACEMENT IGNITION SUPERCOILS (SUPERCOIL (SINGLE COIL)) | DODGE NEON - ALL NEON ...

CALIFORNIA won't transfer title to me without back fees paid. Secondarily the former owner's brother is a lein holder (long since paid off) but now lives in Mexico so is nearly impossible to have him sign off on the lein, so if and when the title changes hands there is that issue. I could purchase l...

Re: Rear Master Cylinder

If a Mityvac can't pull fluid something is wrong!

My Mityvac was able to pull 15 lbs of pressure before opening the front caliper bleed valve. it took about 1 full reservoir to pull new fluid from the rebuilt rear mc to the front and bleed all the air.

I think a epoxy job would hold fine, as long vas cyou got the surfaces clean. And they probably are clean with a recent break.

1200 Rear master cylinder removal

According to the manual i have to take off the swing arm.

Has anybody removed and replaced the Rear MC without doing this?
Also they say (cavalierly) remove the hard lines, as if they were just put in loosely!

Mine is an 1985 GL1200 Aspencade
