Re: Trouble separating front fork slider from tube

If the only reason you are trying to take it apart is to replace the seals, and everything else is good, stop right there. Do it the way Honda tells us to do it. Fill the forks with ATF (or old fork oil) and compress the tubes into the legs with a press. It pops the fork seals right out in 5 seconds...

Textile bags for inside saddlebags and trunk.

I'm looking at a set of textile bags from an 2007 Gold Wing 1800 and I wonder if anybody here could tell me if they would work in the saddlebags and trunk on a GL1200. They are nice and the shape seems close but the fit is a mystery. Thanks for any opinions or experience on this somebody with a 1200...

Re: Stainless Brake Hoses UK- Huge Pricing Difference

Thanks for bringing these to our attention Sadanorakman. I see the full set for front and rear brakes that Wezmoto shows on their website for my bike. I'm planning on changing the hoses next year on my GL1100 and now I know were I'll be buying mine from. Wezmoto will be my choice on that.

Re: Rider footpegs

You've got to use an oxy/acetylene torch and heat the arms of the footpeg mounts until they are red so you can bend them back to the proper position. If you don't have the equipment at home you could try getting an autobody shop or a welding shop to do it for you. I've done it with my setup here in ...

Easy to make if you have a sewing machine.
Thanks, I didn't consider making a set. I'm not finding any commercial manufacturer that make these liners for Goldwings as old as ours. A home made set could be tailor made to fit the bags and maybe also the trunk.Good suggestion RBGERSON, thank you!

Reproduction saddlebag liners

Has anyone found a source for replacement textile bags that fit inside the GL1100 saddlebags? The factory ones look like a nice accessory Honda sold judging by the picture in the parts manual. They sure would make packing for a trip easier.

Snapped the left side cover on - checked it, yup, it’s on. Hit the highway. Cover blew off in no time.
Check out the How-To Article on this site for keeping the side covers from falling off a GL1100. It should work the same way for a GL1200 side cover. Hope you can get a replacement for your bike.

Hi Ernest. Your oil seal is a 4.8 x 14.5 x 5 seal. It's Honda part #91256-425-003, although that doesn't help you directly because you said there are no Honda dealerships at your location. Hope you can find the seal and fix your bike.
