Re: 1200 Power Planet into 79 GL1000 Frame

Thank you again. I guess I would use the existing 1200 carborators unless you have another recommendation.

Re: 1200 Power Planet into 79 GL1000 Frame

Buddy, this is great information. Me and my buddy, the mechanic, are seriously looking into this and you’ve given me great detail. I will endeavor to start this project next month. Because I have so much money already invested in this 79, it’s probably the best bet for me long-term to have a good wr...

I found a 1200 power plant, transmission and shaft drive for a fair price and considering putting it into my bike, BUT not sure to frame can support the 1200. Has anyo...

Re: Front Steer Wobble

Thank you. Guess I'm headed down for tires. What is the best brand for performance runs on windy country roads?

I have a 1979 GL1000. Purchased Delkevic pipes off Ebay, $485.00 Sounds like a true rice rocket now.

Re: Clutch slippage in higher gears when I'm getting on it.

Guys, this is all very good information. My close friend is an airplane mechanic and we are going to change out the oil this week and well as make a minor adjustment to see if it improves.

A quick note, my 1979 does not have this problem so maybe the clutch is just near its end. :(

Bakersfield, CA is very limited on older Ho...
