Re: pinstripe removal

" Tuffy" pot scrubber. Ouch! Better to use a soft rag and not anything with even the slightest abrasive in it for the stripes. Be careful and you won't have a problem ride don't hide. The main objective here is to let the chemical do all the work on the stripe removal and not scrubbing and scraping...

Re: pinstripe removal

Bike must be parked in the shade out of direct sunlight or in a garage and have a cool paint surface, not warm. Use Easy-Off oven cleaner in the yellow can and do only small sections (6-8 inches) one at a time. Leave it on for NO MORE THAN 4 minutes then wipe it off. Move along to the next section a...

Re: Tacho cable too long?

All years for GL1100's used the same cable (Honda number 37260-463-000) so it can't be from the wrong year GL1100. That could only leave the possibility of an aftermarket cable, or it's still not routed correctly under the shelter. I don't have a spare Honda cable here to measure, but if someone has...

Re: replacing rear pads and rotor- what else?

If everything was working before you started the job, then just clean up the outside of the caliper and visually check the outside of the brake hose for wear or abrasions. If there are no visible issues with the caliper or hose then reassemble the rotor and wheel assembly, then the caliper as normal...

Re: Advice for listing on Ebay

There are a couple of ways to sell it on ebay. You might choose to list it as strictly an auction item where whatever the highest bid is at end of auction takes the bike. This could be as little as a few hundred dollars if it doesn't go well for you. The better way is to put a reserve price on the b...

Re: State Motorcycle Laws

I am looking at your list of Oklahoma motorcycle laws and I see the last one says "Accept Motorcycle Endorsement From Other States". That's something I hope every state accepts. I've never even considered the possibility my license would be invalid anywhere in the USA or Canada.

Re: Thinking of buying 81-82 gw your advise

There's no such thing as a bad year for GL1100's. The only questionable feature I dislike (and that's based purely on my own belief) is the linked brake system on the 83 model. I want to decide for myself how to brake with the front and rear brakes based on the riding condition, not automatically ha...

Re: Repair or replace?

Personally I wouldn't bother trying to repair that fairing unless it has extreme sentimental value to you. You'll probably find it's now also broken and cracked under the bottom right edge all around the mounting bolts that hold it to the big frame bracket. It's more practical to get a used one with...

Hi everyone. I am looking for a pair of these chrome accessory covers on the lower front edges of the fairing for an 80-83 GL1100. They are pictured here just below the reflector and run all the way around under the air intake grills to the bottom front edge of the fairing. I don't know if they are ...

Re: warm intake tubes

The 1983 aspencade i am working on has never had the valves adjusted according to owner, over 70000 kms Isn't it frustrating to hear the crazy antics of previous owners. I'd doubt the cam belts will have ever been serviced in that many miles too. Check your bike thoroughly for more fun surprises an...

Re: ? About oem footrests?

1980-1981 are identical so completely interchangeable front and rear. 1982 fits but the front pegs have a slightly different bend angle to the arms, and the rears look different than the 80-81 style in the rubber portion of the peg. 82's fit fine but you would need to get a matched set front or rear...

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...
