Re: Seat pan differences

Just additional info. While it is the same seat be careful if you are buying a replacement off Ebay or wherever. I believe all the standards had a solid black seat while the aspencade for instance was in many cases two tone. A couple of years ago I bought what was described as a "black" seat only to...

Re: leaking rear drive

Just a quick tip on reading oil in the sight glass. Use a small UV flashlight. They are available at a very reasonable cost on amazon etc. The oil shows as green in the glass. Works GR8

Re: Introduction and Turn Signal question

Just heard back from a buddy with an 82 standard and his does indeed have self cancelling turn signals. I am thinking the speed sensor I was referring too sends a signal to turn off the turnsignals once the bike picks up speed. I know I can sit a a stop light/sign and the turnsignal will remain on, ...

Re: Introduction and Turn Signal question

I am not sure that your 82 has self cancelling turn signals. I know the 83 does as I have stripped an 83 aspencade. I see a speed sensor on the diagrams on the enclosed link from NGW for an 83 but do not see it on the diagram for an 82 standard. Look on the very left side of the diagrams after expan...

Re: Are all year GL1100 ignition coils interchangeable year to year?

looks like these coils 30505-MB9-003 are fitment for 82 & 83's.,a partsfiche is your friend in these situations. Lookk for them on sites like Partzilla, Honda Parts Nation etc. Look up your bike and part# usually they also list other bikes that that part fits.

Re: Identifying correct fenders by year

I am thinking that the speedo cable loom was changed as the speedo drive was relocated to the left side in 78. My 78 has a redundant speedo cable loom on the right side but I don't know when Honda actually switched over to a restyled fender. Other than that I think they are the same. two diff parts ...

Good point about brake wear in Winguyjo. An interesting article on the EBC site:

Re: Exhaust Gaskets

If you look they will be likely blackened and flattened substantially (...

How long have you had the bike? The oem main dog bone fuse was 30A, can't imagine that a 7.5 amp aftermarket blade fuse would have ever been sufficient.

Re: What's going on with this main fuse?

I have an aversion to using wire as a replacement for fuses unless it is as a very short term bridge to do diagnostics. The fuse is there for a reason and bypassing that protection will in all likelyhood cause additional problems (like fire, damaged equipment etc.) Usually the fuse blew for a reason...

+1 on the heel-toe shifter. First thing I removed when I bought my last two restorations along with the floorboards. They made it hard to access controls at times especially in situations where I needed them quickly. Others may have a different opinion.

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.
