Re: rust cleaning

I have a huge build-up up rust on the underside of my mufflers. It depends on what you mean buy huge build-up. If it is already to the point that the chrome plating is starting to pit through to the steel underneath, or the chrome plating is starting to seperate from the muffler, then it's too late...

Re: Hoses connected to air box

Those hoses are the crankcase ventilation system. The hose with that black cylinder is the outlet side. That black plastic cylinder fills up with oil vapour and requires emptying once in a while (once a year?). The other one leads from the crankcase up to the air box and is the intake side of the sy...

Re: Are 1983 GL1100 fork tubes the same as previous GL1100 model years?

That's unfortunate. Send RBGERSON a PM here. He is one of the members on this forum that has a garage full of GL1100 parts he wants to sell. I bet he has a couple of sets easily in the stock of stuff he's collected. It's been my impression he's one of a group of the most helpful members here.

Re: Are 1983 GL1100 fork tubes the same as previous GL1100 model years?

Yes, the fork tubes are the same between 80-83 Goldwings. Your 83 internal parts will attach to the earlier fork tube. The actual Honda part number for the tube you are needing is 51410-463-003. Honda calls it a pipe. :?

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

The ownership of my Hondog came just by chance. I was looking to get an alternative bike to ride that I didn't need to worry about leaving parked in public. Really just a beater to use in place of any of my good bikes. I didn't care what make of Japanese bike I ended up with. A friend sent me an ema...

Re: exhaust fix ???

Before you wrap the exhaust with the product you're talking about try to locate the exact place it is actually leaking from. I started off with a neglected bike similar to your situation and it also had a leaky exhaust. Mine was leaking from the slip connections between the mufflers and header pipes...

Re: honda gl1100 primary chain

I don't think they are interchangeable. If you look at the Honda part numbers for all years GL1000 engines, the chain is 23131-371-004. The Honda part number for your 1980 GL1100 is 23131-463-003. I've never had a 75-79 GL1000 engine apart so I can't tell you what is different about the chains.

Re: Gl1100 front brake line length

The two places I would look to order a set of SS brake lines for a GL1100 is www.helperformance.us and also wezmoto.com which are two manufacturers/suppliers for 80-83 Goldwings. Coincidentally, I'm also upgrading mine next year to S...

Thanks Glen. I appreciate your help with that identification. You're right about doing the belts at the same time as the rad is off. I'm just finishing that belt job right now and want to replace the hoses as I'm installing the rad back in. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my inquiry.

A replacement GL1100 pump is about your best option for keeping the mechanical pump. I've never investigate...
