Re: Engine swap - what else to do?

Yes, Measured readings from many years ago (haven't had to mess with a stator for a very long time.) But that's what my memory brings back as the reading.

Re: Engine swap - what else to do?

The resistance of a good stator is low, but not that low. Something like 1.5 ohm. Should read equal between all three wires, and as stated, no reading to ground. If you wanted to visually inspect the stator while engine is out of the frame it will cost you a rear cover gasket, then you could visuall...

Re: Loud gearbox

'Nuther good oil for these 'Wings is Shell Rotella T6 5w40, (diesel oil), it is JASO-MA2 rated and no friction-modifiers (good for wet clutch) and commonly available at Wally-mart at a wallet-friendly price. :)

Enjoy the ride!

Re: Loud gearbox

Welcome to the forum :) Does the pitch of the whine follow engine RPM's? That is to say, when you shift gears, does the pitch of the whine go down along with the engine RPM in the next gear? If so, the final drive is not the source of the whine. If it were, the pitch of the whine would increase the ...

Re: 1989 Gl1500

Disable the fuel pump and Petcock (disconnect fuel pump power and vacuum line on the petcock) and start the bike to run the carbs out of gas, use the choke when the engine starts to sputter to use as much gas out of the carbs you can. This drops the floats to bottom of travel, needle valves open wid...

Re: Oil spray from exhaust pipe

I don't think the LockTite idea is any better than the lock washers... If the threads are good there's no reason you can't torque a bolt properly. Bolt shouldn't have snapped if you used proper torque, so sounds like you were trying to over-tighten it. These bolts don't need a huge amount of force, ...

I wouldn't trust the lockwashers and just barely torqued on anything as critical as timing belt tensioners. That's the last thing you want is one of those working loose on a trip and stranding you somewhere with bent valves. if you are sure the threads are OK, get new bolts, and be sure you can put ...

Just from curiosity I checked out Denver Craiglist. 1500's ranging in price from $2200 for an '88 with 66k to $5500 for a '97 model. The mid 90's models listing around $3-4K. What surprised me is the 1200's are still listing at $1500-$3000, average around $2500. The oldest 1800's can be found starti...

Re: Purchased a GL1100 interstate and have a few questions

Get yourself a can of Seafoam, Soaking the gas cap in Seafoam overnight should get it venting correctly again. Since you are able to get it to idle, add a double-dose of Seafoam to the fuel. This will help clean out the carbs. Seafoam works slowly, it will probably take driving around running thru 3...

Re: Oil spray from exhaust pipe

The gear shifter shaft seal is the most common culprit, but in the "before" picture yours looks dry. Looks like there's oil seeping from the valve cover seal. Won't hurt anything. But if you decide to fix it, it is most likely the rubber seals under the heads of the valve cover bolts that need repla...

Re: Engine Oil SAE 5W40

I've heard that the Rotella T6 now comes in two different flavors, one that we know and love, the other flavor won't be well liked by the clutch.

So if you like T6, just be sure to confirm the JASO rating and the API donut on it to be sure you got the right one.

There's slots in both the timing pulleys and the crankshaft for a woodruff key, the pulleys can only go on one way. But the timing mark of importance is on the flywheel at the rear of the crankshaft, it will indicate true TDC with the T1 mark, there's no particular TDC markings on the crankshaft tim...

Re: Chokes restes coller

Google Translate from French:

Chokes sticks and my cable has games when I bring it down to decrease the revolution, but I have to push the choke manually near the carburetor for the revolution to go down to normal.

If that bike has been sitting for a while before you got it, it's hard to say what old gunk may be laying in the bottoms of the exhaust pipes, I wouldn't worry about the drips quite yet. It may just need o get warmed up real good to burn that old gunk out of the pipes. If there's an issue with the h...

There is no seal on the back end of the crankshaft. Just a roller bearing. The rear end of the crankshaft does not protrude from the engine block so no seal is needed there. The only crankshaft seal is on the front of the engine, behind the timing belt cog pulley which has to be removed to get to th...

The right side cam can be stubborn, there's a valve starting to open at TDC and the valve spring pushes the cam sprocket about two belt cogs CCW from the timing mark. You can turn it back but it fights. For the right side belt, I simply use a wrench on the crank bolt and turn the crank a correspondi...

To be leaving puddles of gasoline in the intake ports, the carbs are having issues, most likely with the float needles/seats which AREN'T included in a Randakk kit. If it leaked much more fuel than that into the intake ports you can wind up with a hydrolocked engine and have to remove sparkplugs to ...
