Re: 1982 GL1100i Alternator Bolt Broke Off

IF it comes to that. there is an EXCELLENT video on youtube by steve saunders. i think he is showing a 1200 but the 1100 is virtually the same.

Re: look at these gl1000 carbs

thanks for the replies ... yes, the (now) oversized hole is in the base of the carb throat, you can see it clearly in the first pic and you can also see the shiny throttle plate peeking through behind it. the puck isn't going to be an issue; the PO did what i consider to be an acceptable repair by f...

Re: look at these gl1000 carbs

thanks for all the feedback , maz. i am still concerned about that big hole though. the 3 tiny holes don't appear to be access portals for the factory to drill other internal passageways. looking at it, they are right where the throttle plate touches the carb body when the throttle is closed, and my...

Re: look at these gl1000 carbs

well, we were right with the "stuck puck" hypothesis. he actually drilled through 2 of them (i found the damaged ones in a separate container). on carb #2 he obviously went too far but on the other puck he went all the way through the puck but didn't contact the carb body itself. the throt...

Re: look at these gl1000 carbs

that was my guess, too, but since the hole was so clean and even, i wanted to make sure that it wasn't factory. wouldn't make any sense for honda to make it that way but one never knows. now i gotta figure out what to do there. i am thinking fill it with lead and smooth it off as best i can.

look at these gl1000 carbs

i know nothing about these carbs other than i was told they are 1978 gl1000 ...

look at the bores where the aluminum puck belongs ... in carb #2, (the first pic) one of the three holes is much larger than it is in the other 3 carbs.
is this normal ?

Re: Is it worth it

"Everything else looks amazing" ... then yes. offering $400 would be reasonable but if the ad says "firm", be prepared to pay it. in my area at least, these bikes are getting harder to find.

Re: How to replace your air filter

you will probably do better to start your own thread in the gl1200 section. there, people can follow along with your progress. my first move would be to check the part numbers of those emgo filters to see whether the PO did, in fact, order the right ones. removing the bottom gasket isn't such a good...

Re: Loud knock at low rpm

" ...1 & 3 are synced at about 15; 2 & 4 at about 40. Getting 4 closer to 3 worsens the problem ... "

this is nasty. a proper compression test can sometimes avoid a lot of tail-chasing. i would start there to confirm healthy engine internals.

Re: 1981 GOLDWING 1100 INTERSTATE FOR SALE

from the pics, that looks like a nice bike.
if they are selling over there for anything near 3500 pounds / $6100CDN /$4800USD a person would do well importing them as a part-time money-making hobby.

Re: DCT Transmission

i don't know if a dct works any differently, but with a cvt, when the bike is on the center-stand the rear wheel spins weakly at idle; when the rear wheel is on the ground, the weight of the bike alone prevents any forward creep at idle.

gl1000 and gl1100 gas tanks

i have 3 goldwing fuel tanks in the basement and 1 outside in a parts bike. as usual, i neglected to mark the ones that are "in stock" :oops: . partzilla shows different part numbers for the gl1000 and gl1100. are they interchangeable ?

no expert here, but cylinder 1 is rich or mis-firing ... the other 3 are probably not really as lean as the picture makes them appear so i wouldnt worry about them for now.
