Re: 83' Gl1100 electrical dead after jumping

Take spark plugs out one at a time and see if they are firing.
Sounds like a bad coil.

If it turns out it is the coils I recommend putting on a c5 ignition. Coils for 83 are 35 yrs old.

Re: Interstate fairing removal question

You can get rid of the weight and the box it sits on.The remaining wires are for the headlight and turn signals. The toughest part is locating the turn signal and wings that hold them.

Did you check the dog bone fuse? They may look good but when touched they turn to dust.

Re: REAR MASTER CYLINDER PISTON FROZEN

Use a grease gun to the caliper. The grease will push the pistons out.
Put something in between the pistons and the end of travel of piston so that both pistons push out.

Headlight and Brake lights.

Went to a party, 50 miles away, last night on the bike. I went to leave and no headlight or brake lights. Thank goodness I had bright running lights. I managed to only have to stop 1 time to get home at midnight. Looked this morning and the fuse for the headlight was blown and in pieces. The brake l...

Re: What should I watch out for?

I would not ride on tires 8 yrs old even if they were bought off the shelf.
8yr old tires with a bike sitting on them would be worse.

Just depends on how much your life is worth.

Re: Problem "Rear Shock Bump Stops" 83 gl1100

Post a thread after you have ridden the refurbished shocks a short piece. Let others know if it is worth it. Post where you got your parts.

I still have not completed mine. Today was the day but I got called to help move a friend's daughter from an apt to her new to her new house.
