Re: Handlebar grip diameter

Unless I misunderstood you have already answered your own question. You will need 7/8" grips. Style is subjective and as you have seen there are many different ones on Ebay. Just make sure to check fit, a lot of sellers do this as some grips are longer/shorter than others. my 2 cents worth.

the OP never says boo, just reads the help, and leaves. I guess that is the major source of my "rant". As others have said it takes time to put together an informative response and it would be nice to see the OP say "thanks that helped" or nope had to do this. Oftentimes the threads just end with n...

It's the same on automotive forums. Some guy will come on the board, all happy about his '78 924, asking why it's making that rumbling noise in the rear and asking what kind of tires will make the noise go away, because the previous owner told him that's what the problem is. Someone tells him it's ...

This is the first run on my 78 with 2001 Sportster oem slip ons. No cross overs to deal with if you are able to find sportster pipes prior to 2003.

Many things are the same, many are different. You can go to a parts fiche on sites like Partzilla.com and compare part numbers. Some parts can be adapted to fit either but things like gauges, turn signal mounts, tailliights etc are different. You probably have already seen that the faux tank, with b...

I have a 1980 gl1100. tried to install new front signals and they lit up very weakly and would not flash. I only have 2 wires coming from the bike to original signals (both wires are black). I ordered new signals with 2 wires. I discovered that the old signals get ground from the fork bracket they ...

Re: 81 gl1100 foot pegs

Also when shopping remember that there are slight differences even on the 1100's. For example the 83's are wider and flatter. This is important if you are trying to match a left to a right foot peg you already have. I say this cause you asked about the left foot peg only. In my case I was ripping of...

Got Ya! But if you aren't in a rush, quite often they come up on ebay for less. I got both for my 83 for just over 60 US dollars total. The frames are slightly different and I would do as you are and make sure to buy one that fits. Maybe contact some bike breakers? Another thing you can do is post o...

Re: 1983 GL 1100

I am a fan of draining some oil from the engine and replacing that with a can of Seafoam (equal amount to the oil drained). Then take the bike for a gentle ride for 50 or 60 miles (do not thrash the engine). Drain the engine and install new oil and filter. You may find at very least the starter clut...

Can you verify if it's oil smoke or coolant smoke? You can tell by the smell.
And by the color. Oily smoke is bluish while coolant smoke is white.
