Re: Are there 2 different 1983 GL1100i Rear caliper types

Nah. The 1500 caliper will fit but the bracket is different. Use your bracket and toss the 1500 bracket. The 82 has 30mm pistons all around. The 1500 is 33 mm if I remember correctly. Yea, I had to do this to my 82 as well. My shop partner went berserk and ruined my old one. I nearly punched that ol...

Is ABS going to be difficult or impossible to find soon? I started gathering my needed ABS items for the trunk rack reinforcement and was quickly thrown for a surprise. Stopped into LOWE's in Loganville, Ga. and asked for ABS pipe & cement. Sorry, we don't carry ABS anymore. I checked the plumb...

On the other hand, you could push a million volts through a wire the thickness of a hair, but only at an extremely low current. Wire the thickness of a hair could easily stand 10mA current, but that would still be 10,000 watts! :!: :idea: Not Quite there tuff guy. 10mA is milliAMPS or .01 A NOT 10,...

Re: first time bleeding brakes and at wits end - plz help

ok so what I was afraid happened did happen - the female end of the bleeder screw in the caliper is stripped. Not totally but I fished out some aluminum shavings from inside and the bleeder screw now doesn't tighten all the way. So it's a shot caliper I guess. BUT, I've got a spare caliper from an ...
