Re: 1976 GL1000 - A Soul's Journey - Ride Across America

I'm in Hereford and have a few used ones, up for grabs, if you can't find a new one.

Good point. I have lived this long without one, I think I can continue to live without it.

Re: DSO138 Oscilloscope

Just for my info, what is a very high sample rate? Looking for a spec, not a definition. Analog scopes are better for automotive. A digital has to have a very high sample rate to catch things like noisy sensors, etc. Which is why, though I have a DSO138 and a Full size digital dual trace scope, I re...

Re: DSO138 Oscilloscope

Would that be similar for a TPS? Should these tests be done with the part installed & the bike running? Here's an example. Notes on oscilloscope display measuring MAF sensor: GF came home from work complaining her '99 Grand Prix was running real bad, and stalling out at traffic lights. OBD codes sai...

Re: Painted or Vinyl Wrapped?

You don't say if you had to disassemble the bike to do the job, did you? If you could post a couple of pic's showing the application would be nice.

Re: Lester Wheels

My pm reply doesn't seem to be working, so here is my reply to snobrdr I don't have a 19 inch. I was mistaken, it is an 18 inch. Here is a copy of my previous reply if you didn't get it. Oops, Just looked up the receipt for the tire and found out it is an 18" wheel, but definitely for an '75-'77. Th...

I looked and found the Front Lester is an 18" wheel. It also has a new Bridgestone Spitfire on it.

Re: Lester Wheels

Thanks guys. I have three 16" rears and two 19" fronts. I'll sell one front and two rears if anybody needs them. The front is a right side speedo Drive. '75-'77 I think and the rears will fit 1000's & 1100's.

Lester Wheels

Does anyone know if there is a Lester rear wheel available for the 1000's or 1100's that is for a 17 inch tire. I have two 16 inch rears.

Re: High speed wobble

Wingit Unless there is more going on you should not have adversely affected the trail. The rear wheel is smaller and the front is taller (and wider) . This effectively tips the bike, (back down and the front up). It also makes the bike foot print slightly longer. Picture the steering bearing axis e...

Re: High speed wobble

Left and right bearings on a 1000 are the same. They are needle bearings, unlike the others which use tapered roller bearings. Mine is also an upgrade to use needle thrust bearings instead of the composite washer the OEM used.

Re: High speed wobble

I found out that the rear wheel is a 16" instead of a 17" which is stock. Wheels are Lester's and tires are 1 size wider than stock.
Also looked up Frame Spec's:
Gl1000 Caster angle is 62 Degrees, trail 4.7"
Gl1200 Caster angle is 60 Degrees Trail 4.6"

Re: High speed wobble

I'm not sure if the trail changed, but it corners so much better. The wobble is in the frame. Same thing my Ninja 600 did years ago. I have new Progressive 412's on the back. I will adjust and see what happens. They are pretty stiff now. I also have Race Tech Fork springs up front. I want to go to 7...

Re: High speed wobble

My '76 GL did that too. Now I just don't try such speeds anymore, which has completely eliminated the problem. But seriously, I have heard numerous times that the old GL's have spaghetti frames and that they do not hold up well at high speeds or hard cornering. A friend of the family who worked at ...

Re: High speed wobble

Check fork lengths from triple tree to axle on both sides? Unequal lengths can pull the front wheel out of plane with the rear wheel. There is a lengthy procedure for checking front and rear wheel planes using string lines that can tell you things the eyes can’t see. http://www.motorcycle.com/how-t...
