Re: Moving to an 1800 a good idea?

:mrgreen: Actually reading this thread is making me green with envy. I am fixing up a 1980 1100 so might be a while before we upgrade. Love the bike though. ☺

Re: GL100 front brake pad shims A and B

Can I assume they are dirty and not rusty?

Re: GL100 front brake pad shims A and B

Both sides. Any idea what shipping to Ontario Canada would be? Our dollar us only worth 78cents US.

GL100 front brake pad shims A and B

Just got the right pads and as I dismantle the front calipers I notice there were no shims behind them. Can I go ahead and put in the new pads until I can find them online somewhere?

Re: Fork Seal Repacement

And here you are again! Lol. I got a credit for the brake pads but have to wait for the right size until Thursday. So I went after the forks. The stupid lower will not come off despite 2 hours of intermittent banging. Can barely move my arm.

Hopefully a few more whacks and it will come loose.

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

Thanks by the way Chevy. You were a big help! I love this website Admin! My Harley buddy across the street is jealous. He finds most online resources are paid sites. Chevy, is there a Harley Site equivalent to this one where he can go to learn how to do his weekly repairs to his 1999 Sporty?

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

Those are the ones! You would think the shop lists would have it right for 1980! LOL. I had the same issue buying a new battery for my 1980 Yamaha 650 Maxim on Saturday. Up here in Canada we have an iconic chain called Canadian Tire. They have the wrong size battery listed for my little bike. Way to...

Re: How to replace your front brake pads

Poop! I bought front brake pads for my 1980 GL1100 and followed the wonderfully precise method for removing the front wheel in anticipation of taking off the greasy pads and cleaning up the leaked fork oil. Then before putting on the new pads I planned to replace the fork seals using another DIY fro...

Re: Shell oil/Seafoam/Wet Clutch

Thanks. I think I have been talked out of seafoam in the oil. It has done wonders for my carbs, cars snow blower and generator though!

Re: SO IT's NOVEMBER WHO'S STILL RIDING?

I took my 1100 out for a spin yesterday! 2 degrees centigrade. No snow yet in Niagara so I used it to pick up some fondue ingredients. Then i remembered a thread that said to avoid short trips on cold days. Sooo..... ;) My wife refuses to ride today. Too cold. Yet many of my friends will be snowmobi...

Re: Shell oil/Seafoam/Wet Clutch

Well I am finally posting my first reply! Merry Christmas! I read through this whole conversation and still don't know how much Seafoam to add to my oil before I change the oil on my new to me 1980 GL1100 Interstate. Had to wipe the frost off the seat last night before riding home after Christmas di...
