Re: Torque for the Timing Belt Tensioner Bolts

Honda Service Manual has a listing for different bolt sizes as a general torque value. Find the bolt size and use that torque value.

Re: Wanted: Intercom Passenger Contoller

J&M sells an inline volume control lower cord. Is that what you're referring to?

Re: Gl1100 squeak at idle once warm

My 1200 had been sitting for a while, I'd been doing a lot of going through (including timing belts). When I first got it going the tensioner was chirping (that's what I'd call it) and that was audible at idle. Since I thought they might have gone bad (wasn't doing it before), I ordered them and con...

Re: HELP! Goldwing won't start

Depending on the battery failure, I've had them drag a good battery down (voltage wise) where it can't be jumped. Take battery and get it load tested, it's a definitive answer!

Re: How do you get the fork caps back on?

If your weight and friend(s) can't make it work, I'd go searching for the fork cap tool. I think Motion Pro makes a tool for this operation, might check with them.

Re: First Honda. First cruiser. 86 Aspencade SEi.

Somewhere I read about a liquid that can be applied to the wires where the insulation has been compromised. I can't elaborate more since I don't remember where I read it. Maybe google?

Re: Project 83 gl1100

The timing belts should be changed if their age is unknown, especially if it's been setting for a while.

Re: First Honda. First cruiser. 86 Aspencade SEi.

For the rusty chrome, try water and crumpled aluminium foil rubbed on it, or try Evapo-rust.

The striping will be a hit or miss of finding, just lots of searching world wide. I've thought on mine if you could make them, but may be in over my head on that idea ;)

Re: '82 Oddities and Quirks

SNIP Was absolutely not planning on swapping the pipes unless absolutely necessary. I really like how it sounds throughout the power band. I'm assuming there's a carburetor rebuild kit available? Also assuming that's in the DIY section for the 1100s? I'll check on jpcycles.com and look when I'm don...

Sounds like a bad battery, take it and get it load tested. That will confirm or deny battery condition.
