Re: Off-road Rally Goldwings

Why is this a waste? Because these people think nothing of pounding the crap out of a bike off road that was designed to be an outstanding highway touring bike. When they're done abusing and destroying this Goldwing they'll be the same jackasses that then part it out on ebay and try to make money o...

Re: front brake hoses

Hi Frank. Go to wezmoto.com and see the brake lines they make for our Goldwings. They are in England, so not far away from you. Upgrading to a set of those would be a good improvement on your rig.

Re: epoxy sealant/ adhesive

Al, before you make the repair read here on the forum about using a mixture of ABS shavings and ABS cement mixed together. The resulting combination produces a nice liquid ABS adhesive that melts together with the ABS plastic of the Honda part you're fixing. I used this procedure to repair my side c...

Re: GL1100 valve covers

I wouldn't risk buying 1200 valve covers. The only things I could check for you is the valve cover gaskets and the 4 bolts. The 1200 uses different bolts and gaskets than the GL1100 just by looking at the Honda part numbers for them.

Re: 1100i straight piping

How hard is it to install the jets? Do you have a part number for the exhaust? It's easy to install jets. Just time the modifications to when you're already going to clean and rebuild your carbs.That way you're doing two things in one job. You'd normally be taking the jets out of the carb bodies as...

Wanting to find out how I can get a little bit of a rumble out of the bike The easiest way to make the GL1100 sound good, run good, and make more power than stock is to install a set of Mac performance exhausts with a K&N # HA-8080 air filter and, very importantly, install 1 size larger than stock ...

Re: 1100i straight piping

Bad idea. You'll end up with less power than stock and you'll never tune it to run right. Besides that, any bike with straight pipes sounds like a broken piece of crap when it's riding down the road.

I would HIGHLY recommend that you do not use Saber Cycle, or recommend them to others.

Wow, that's totally opposite of what I would say after having ...
