Hi, I would like to know if shocks that are for GL1100 will fit on a GL1000 they are 13'' I could get a good deal on new shocks, hope they fit.

Ok, thanks guy's, The guy that had my bike before welded some brackets to fit GL1100 air shocks on a GL1000 I guess he got a good deal on GL1100 air shocks. When I start working on the bike this winter, I will get new shocks.
