Need O-Ring Size for 1982 GL1100 Air Shocks

Post by jimmy's winging now »



These are the ONLY PARTS holding me up from putting my 82 '
Goldwing Aspencade back into Service. Rebuilding air shocks
w/Progressive Spring kit and seals. My Dilema is I need to replace
the Larger O-rings that go on the internal inside of top crown cap for the
top shock mounts. Have everything Disassembled ready to be put back together. Mother Honda doesn't even have These O-rings listed in their parts fische. If anyone out there knows how and where or size of needed O-rings, I would be very grateful to have this information and
THANKS to all Responders. My 82' is MINTY w/60,000 miles on her!!!Can't wait to get her ROLLING AGAIN!!!
After this Project I have a 1986 Aspencade SEI that I'm going to try and Tackle. She has 68,000 miles Original but sat 8 years. I'll have
more than my hands full with this CLASSIC!!! I may have bit off more than I can chew but what the Heck, she was FREE!!!

Does anybody know these o-ring sizes? Surely somebody out there
has had to replace these o-rings for their AIR-SHOCKS...

Hi Jimmy. Your description of the part you're talking about is confusing to everybody. The names of the parts you're using aren't called that by Honda. I suggest you post a picture here of the piece the O-ring fits into and we will be able to help you.

Your post is confusing as to what brand of shock you are rebuilding: Showa or Progressive 416 air shocks. If you are rebuilding the Progressive 416 I have the two o-rings that are on the top mount I can measure for you.

First of all I want to Thank all that have Responded!!!
My Shocks are the Original Stock Air shocks for the
1982 Aspencade. I am using the Progressive spring kit
and installing their replaceable springs. When you separate
the Top shock mount from the body after using spring compression tool (I fabricated using 2" steel floor flanges) the Top mount unscrews
from shock body. Once separated you will see the rubber shock dampner and 2 O-rings that goes around the circular top shock mount
that must be removed to install the New Springs. These (o-rings) get installed internally and go on that round top shock mount before
being re-assembleed. I am old school and no too TECH Savvy.
Will get my daughter to post Pics real soon so we can see the
Big Picture and to all, I Thank you for the help and a GREAT FORUM!!!!!!
