Re: 1983 Aspencade help - VIN vs year

Just opinion but would be very surprised if Mr. Honda put out his pride and joy 1983 Aspencade with all the intended goodies like intercom, air suspension with on board settings , anti-dive etc. etc. and then put on the wrong gauges, wheels and so on. I think you have a bastardized bike and that man...

Re: Turn signal housing removal and bench rebuild....has anybody done it?

On my bike when you activate the turn signal the running light turns off so I am thinking it may be that you have a turn filament out on the right hand turn signal or a wire that has been disconnected to that circuit. You see no light on the right hand side but that would happen if you are signallin...

Re: $200 GL1000 barn find

Realize that oem is best but if you can't find front turn signals in good shape there is a manufacturer "Bikemaster" that makes an excellent replica. I put a set on my 83 which should match your 79 as well. I bought mine in Canada at Fortnine. The link to that company and the turn signals is here: h...

Re: $200 GL1000 barn find

Very nice find and a real plus that you have the headlight housing, orig turn signals etc. Do you have the mounting ears for the headlight and turn signals as well? As you have the original parts I am assuming they are in great shape. The seat can be found, cruise Ebay and if you don't already you m...

Re: 1983 Exhaust removal

Yes those are the gaskets I referred to. They are made out of thin tubular copper material that crushes when the nuts are tightened. That is also the reason to recheck the nuts used to mount the headers as they don't often crush flat (like the ones on your bike) until at least the second go round. T...

Re: 1983 Exhaust removal

I am thinking that the headers attached by the 4 nuts and lockwashers should come off fairly easily at least my 78 headers did. Very little force was needed to separate the pipes from the heads, once the nuts were removed. You have to look "up" into the exhaust openings in the heads to see the gaske...

Re: 1983 Exhaust removal

On my bike (83 aspencade stripped)the engine guard would have to come off before removing the header. The clamp that holds the header onto the head is fixed to the header pipe and there is one case guard mount that will not let the headers come right off.. Hope that makes sense. The headers are fixe...

Re: Rear running lights not working.

Here in Canada you are not allowed orange running lights on the rear. The rear turn signals are therefore one filament bulbs. I am assuming this is a global regulation but I may be wrong. The front turn signals are by law required to be two filament bulbs.The front turn signals function as running l...

From my understanding the neutral light is activated by a ground wire that is connected through a connector/harness which runs up the front right hand frame member.

I do not believe so. The voltmeter is in the fairing and hooks to the bike via the umbilical cord. Do not see why it would be necessary to have the voltmeter working before the dash pod would power up.
