Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

When I put the rocker's on I torqued them to 20 ft. lbs. He untorqued the 6 bolts for the rack to 15 ft. lbs. This allowed us to turn the engine over with no catches.

Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

Believe it or not but I am having the exact same problem with my left head.
2 Springs broke on the valves. Now I can not get past a spot when turning the crank.
Will let you know tomorrow on what my mechanic does.

Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

When you changed the timing belts did you check the valves intake and exhaust? That made my bike perk up a lot.

Change the belts ASAP.
Also write the date and mileage on the inside of the belt covers.

Re: Fairing grounds??

Go to the "manual" at the top of any page. Follow the wiring diagram.

The plug by the left knee is where all the fairing wires lead to, including the ground.

Re: Are the parts on a 1980 gl1100 and a 1982 gl1100 interchangeable?

Most parts are interchangeable on all gl1100. The tires and brakes are a little different on the 4 models.

NAPA # 7733 Hose.

Take the hose you cut off the bike and cut this NAPA hose from your old hose for length. You have both the upper and lower hose

Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

If the pipes are already off--replace.
If not -do not replace.
Ride the bike and listen for any leak at the headers.

Was your water propeller plastic or metal? If metal someone has already replaced it. You should not get any wiggle from the prop.

Re: new to forum and just bought a 80 GL1100

Welcome to the forum from Ohio

#1 You are correct.

Change out the brake fluids. Clean up the brake pistons.

A lot of us run 2 oz. of ATF in the gas tank.
