Re: GL1200 vs. GL1500 Advantages?

I also have a similar dilemma, I own a 1982 GL1100 Interstate and a 1993 GL1500 Aspencade. I ride the 1500 more for all the following reasons: more power, better ride, more storage, parts are easier to get, cruise control, stereo. Everything that the 1100 doesn't have.

The previous owner of my GL1500A was using 10W30, the owners manual says to use 10W40. When I picked up some HP4M, the M stands for a moly additive, the service tech I was working with said that the HP4M was not recommended for wet clutches and could cause it to slip. so I went with the HP4.

If unleaded fuel is being phased out for the use of ethanol fuel, what is the best advice, change out all the hoses? What about fuel pumps and carb o-rings, ect.? Since I own a 1982 GL1100 That I just got running last year any advice will be useful. Thank you, Mike.
