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! :)

Awesome Info. Thanks all.
You can do anything, but not everything.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. :ugeek:
