Re: Hi everyone, new member here from Canada.

I don't know how many miles are on yours mine has 58000 timing belts are a must do. If you don't know the service history won't hurt to change them and have the radiator flushed. Cheap insurance your motor will live long 8-)

Float bowl question

On my 84 Aspencade the left rear float bowl is leaking not when running but sitting it will empty the bowl over night. I haven't pinpointed the leak but I think it's coming from the brass drain screw that's what is wet. Wipe the bowl down go ride for a hour or so dry when you park it but wet in the ...

Re: Starter or sprague clutch

9 put of ten times its build up on the sprang not letting it engage add some sea foam to the oil take it for a short easy ride then change your oil and filter and see if that helps. Also to heavy of oil will cause the same issues. 8-)

Re: 1983 Aspe Rear Master Cylinder Problem

Answer to your questions no it's not a direct fit the top hole on the new master cylinder lines up but the bottom hole will need a bracket made. Flat strap works good a new fill cup hose will be needed any parts house will have it your old brake hose is double lip flair new master cylinder is a banj...

Re: removing linked brake system

The brakes on these 1200 GWs are quite good. Have been on an advanced riding course and one of the sessions is emergency/threshold braking. These brakes will stop the 1200 GW just as fast as those bikes that do not have linked brakes such as your BMW, Kawasakis and others. Having the linked brakes ...

Re: 1983 Aspe Rear Master Cylinder Problem

You can do a 1500 or a 1800 rear master cylinder up grade that's what I did on my 83 the rear and the front are linked on the 83 I don't think the 82 is. Took about a half a day to do the swap and a new Stanless brake line but well worth it the 83 master cylinder is almost impossible to find. I boug...

Weep hole drip

On my 84 Aspencade I have a slow drip when the bike sits many 2 or 3 drips no water in the oil do I need a new pump or just the o-ring kit. If I do need the pump can I just buy the mechanical seal and replace it or should I get the complete pump Thanks Tim 8-)
