gl1100 spark problem

Post by Rudy30 »



Hi can any one help i have a problem with spark on my motorcycle 1984 gl1100 i have replaced all the plug wires and plugs and the caps and have spark at the plugs if i remove the plug wires one by one 3/2/4 all makes a diffrents to the running of the motor but 1 has very little effect i tested it with a another spark plug against the engin and the plug has a strong spark were do i look for the problem?
the other plrblem that i have is the front brakes i have redone the rubbers and piston in the calibers but cannot get it to build up there are no leaks if i clamp the two pipes close above the calipers it builds up hard when i take the clamps off it goes soft ,even did one at a time same result even did the revers bleading still the same.
Regards
Rudy

If you have spark at the plug then there are 2 things left to check, compression and fuel. As for the brakes it would help to know what you have, there is no such thing as an 84 1100.

83 has linked brakes if OEM only one front is operated by the front lever..right??? side..check the master the return hole maybe blocked..and try tying the lever back over night. taping it once in while can help

Foot pedal operates RF- LR Hand brake LF On rear brake bleeding RF first then LR. Do not let pedal or lever completely compress when bleeding. 15mm distance between front lever and handle bar. Let us know how it is going. send pictures..
