1983 GL1100 Rear Brake Caliper replacement - SOLVED!

Post by prhladio »



Hey everyone. Thanks to all for your posts and How-to documents. You helped me resurrect a 1983 GL1100 that had been sitting. It's my first Goldwing. I wanted to pass along something I saw in a Facebook group. You can use a rear caliper off a 1200 or 1500 on the 83. I tried it and it is a perfect fit. Bolts right on. I haven't seen this tip anywhere else. Thanks again for all your help. I should be able to take it out on the maiden voyage tomorrow!

Yes, the front and rear calipers on an '83 GL1100 are the same as the '84-'87 GL1200's. I did not know about the 1500's ….
Have a nice day! :)
