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...

Accessory chrome strips for GL1100 fairing

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...

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.
