Re: LOTS OF GL1000 AND 1100 PARTS

hi
would you have an heel toe shifter for my 84,
even rusted i dont care,
or a pair of floor boards ??

i am retired here in Quebec and not rich so any used parts would be good ,
new parts are way too $ for my budget.

Re: Poorboy alternator conversion on my GL1200A

Stay with 3 wires,
most of the guys that have done this mods went too 3 wires.

i baught mine a rockauto,it was a chinese clone of a nipodenso and his inside regulator was bad,,working but too low in woltage,i just change the regulator and in 30 minutes i was in business.

Re: GL1100 left side smoking white

Gervais, and all others that offered help, many thanks. In the end I had to take carbs out three more times, each time bumping up the jets more and more until I had gone up 7 on the slow jets and 5 on the mains. Mac aftermarket pipes that apparently weren't accounted for by the previous owner and m...

Re: 5'5"

I'm coming in around 5'8" with my boots on, just picked up an 82 gl1100 interstate, its my first heavy bike. My most recent bike is a 2015 R3 so you can say this is a BIG difference. I feel pretty comfortable with the bike as it feels fairly well balanced when I stop, and I can be on toes on both s...

Re: Poorboy alternator conversion on my GL1200A

yes,absolutely. your alternator cannot reach his max output because it is too slow. mine is a 55 amp and enough,, i must go now, when you fit the 4 inch crank pulley you will have to take the radiator,the lower part,further by 3/4 inch because the fan will touch the alternator strap.check my picture...

Re: Poorboy alternator conversion on my GL1200A

well "I have a 2 inch pulley and 2 1/2 on the alternator that 2 inch pulley should be turning that alternator much faster than a 3 or 4 inch pulley" you have a ratio of 1 to 1 i have a ratio of 1 turn of crank for 2 turn of alternator, if i add the place i would have fit a 4.5 inch , the motorcycle ...

Re: Poorboy alternator conversion on my GL1200A

Gervais, I like you had a very hard time finding a pulley, car quest said they could order me one for 168 dollars and would take several weeks so I ended up ordering one from the UK it's only a 2 inch pulley. I hooked my yellow wire witch is ignition into a wire that I unplugged from the voltage re...

Re: SPARK PLUGS, end of life for IRIDIUM's?

i ^prefer for 40 years + a drop of new oil on the tread and screem the spark plug in place using my hand,,never use the rachet
so this way you know that you did not damaged the head tread.
my way for decades!

Re: SPARK PLUGS, end of life for IRIDIUM's?

I've heard it said that leaving a spark plug in place for too long can make it pretty difficult to remove. As inexpensive as standard NGK 5129 (DPR7EA-9) spark plugs are for the GL1500, replacing them every 12,000 miles is the probably the best option. But that is just my opinion. At less than $3.0...

I'm 5'5", 140#. I've been riding Gold Wings for nearly 40 years. I've had a '78, an '85, and currently a '96 GL1500. It's a big, heavy bike with a fairly tall seat. I always thought that everyone balanced their bike on tippy-toes... until I sat on a low cruiser. ;) All the comments about experience...

Re: 20 inch windshield!!! ?????

take a look at the Madstad offering. for me, it was the best thing I did for my situation. adjust it high, or way low. your choice, and you can do it on the fly w/o stopping. ( yeah, they say not to do that ) but I do it anyway. https://madstad.com/collections/honda/products/honda-gold-wing-gl1200-...
