Breather hose/Clutch cable Rad overflow layout

Post by seismicpete »



1978 gl1000 Does anyone have a picture/diagram of the correct/manufacturers layout for clutch cable, rear brake light cable, radiator overflow pipe and breather hose as they pass between fuel tank and frame on their way up towards the airbox. I am currently correcting many faults from previous owners. I can`t seem to find a pic anywhere. cheers Pete

Thanks Ruud. I have seen all those diagrams before. It is the right side of the bike where my problem is, where the clutch cable comes up from the engine and meets the radiator overflow pipe, the breather hose and brake light cable. there is a limited amount of space between the fuel tank and frame. Surely Honda had the best order to fit these 4 items.

Bump. Anyone have a good pic or description concerning this? I think Honda invented the blivit, because this is definitely one. Cramming two hoses and a clutch cable between the frame and the tank so far ain't happening for me. It would be easier (but uglier) to route one of the hoses outside the frame. Thanks.
