GL1000 Front brake calipers

Post by steelersman72 »



I need to rebuild my front brake calipers on my 1976 GL1000 but I cant find a forum on it. Are the GL1000 and GL1100 calipers the same? I just did the brakes on it and the boots on the two pistons on both sides fell a part in my hands so I know that they need to be done. Any advice and help would be very appreciated.

They are not exactly the same, but the principles (and most of the parts) are identical, so you can be safe using the GL1100 rebuild How-To article.
