Re: 5mm Cloth Braided Fuel Hose

Sorry, but I'm not aware of a hose off the gate cap vent. I was using from petcock to pump and back. It took a long time to get the hose from that Volkswagen site. Good luck.

Re: 5mm Cloth Braided Fuel Hose

Once again, thank you for the additional information on the screw clamps. I will probably go down that road as I have one bike and right now am only replacing the fuel hoses so I can't justify the additional cost of the pliers. I do agree with your philosophy, if it is worth doing it is worth doing ...

Re: 5mm Cloth Braided Fuel Hose

Hello, I really appreciate your taking the time to drill into this for me and provide me with links. I will have to see if anyone I know or a mechanic has those Oetiker pliers. If not I will have to go with regular clamps given the cost of the pliers. Don't know what happened with the eBay link I se...

Re: 5mm Cloth Braided Fuel Hose

Hello, I ordered the hose as recommended from the VW supplier. Mention in the post was made of the OETIKER clamps but there was no link to the proper size/product. I looked on eBay and would like to know if this is the clamp to use for the 5mm hose. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Oetiker-16700002-Stepless...

Re: REMOVAL THROTTLE TWIST GRIP & THROTTLE CABLES

This info is a big help thanks. Especially about how loosening the pull cableI will not screw up my tuning when I reinstall. Was really worried to screw with the carb connections.
I will get on this in the next days and post my results.
Have a good weekend,

REMOVAL THROTTLE TWIST GRIP & THROTTLE CABLES

Hello, I have a 76 GL1000 and I'm in the process of dropping the bars to 2" rise bars. I'm 6'6" with long arms so I really need this. I disconnected all of the electrics at their connections at the front of the tank from the harnesses running through the handle bars. I removed everything f...

Re: Switching out a GL1100 "tank" panels for GL1000 "tank" panels.

Thank you for your thoughts. Since I don't have the 1100 in front of me I had no way of knowing. I think I will look into having a fiberglass tank made to my design and the mounting points of the 1100.

Switching out a GL1100 "tank" panels for GL1000 "tank" panels.

Hello,
I like the 75-77 GL1000 "tank" more than the 1981 GL1100 and would like to switch them out.
Has anyone tried to put the 1000 onto the 1100 and how was the work needed to make it happen.
Thanks
