Re: 81 head on 83 gl1100 engine

My fuzzy memory says they are a bolt on, but the 83 1100 actually had a different shaped intake valve. I think the early years were flat and the 83 had a slightly dished valve, or visa versa. Look up Honda valve part numbers an 83 were different. If anything with an older engine it is probably bette...

Re: Lost timing help!

Yep, to clarify: set both valve timing belts with crank at T-1. You are probably thinking of setting ignition, or the rotating of the engine to set belt tensioners. http://www.ngwclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3544

Re: Ignition coil compatibility

You can use them, but need to keep resistance close to stock. IMO it is cheaper to use gl1500 coils. You can get three for cheap. They're newer and much like 1200 coils. If you go electronic, you can skip the resistor I think. Check the manual, but I think you need about a 2 ohm resistor to get you ...

Re: Dodge Neon coils on GL1000

You might want to read the posts by others who have tried this on a 1000. The Neon coils are very low ohm for our bikes. I have a set sitting on the shelves, but they are 0.6 ohm. You would be a lot of ballast resistance to be able to use them safely with points or with Dyna electronic. Wasn't stock...

Re: Center stand woes!

I have wondered about this for some time as there are so many discrepancies of how easy or difficult it is. Both of my 77's were a bear for me, 5'10" and 200 lbs. I removed the one as it had rusted and overturned in the wrong direction. The other one is easy if I put the back tire on a 2x4. I wonder...

1200 stroke?

I have all kinds of sites showing different stokes for the 1200. Anyone know what it si for sure. I have about six sites showing it the same as the 1000 and 1100, 61.4mm, and six showing 66mm. Thinking of putting 1000 heads, cams and carbs on a 1200 motor.

Re: EMGO fuel filters - gone?

That is what I read on a different site. Owners should be aware of this, and know that final sales are because of this. It would be nice if they could say they have remedied the problem and had some marks on the boxes, however knowing GREED, they'll probably liquidate what they have and then come ou...

Re: EMGO fuel filters - gone?

Isn't the EMGO the one noted for problems with the filter deteriorating and ending up in your pump and carbs?

1000 heads on a 1200 motor

I have seen a few who claim to have done this, yet the specs show that the 1200 had a 4.6mm longer stroke than the 1000 and 1100. The ones I have read about claim a lot more low end tourque from the longer stroke, but improved top end from the cams especially if from earlier 75-77 cams. Carb venturi...
