Tune up 1983 GL1100

Post by A55wipe »

I my compression test to start with it was 150 across the board, then I did my valve adjustments almost every one of them was loose. Did another compression test and picked up almost 5 lb per cylinder across the board one was a little lower but still come on. Then I did my car sink from a fresh rebuild, just got done resealing my gas tank new fuel filter new back tire new brake pads while I was there and she runs great the compression test surprised me I didn't think I would get 5 lb from a simple valve adjustment but that was the first time I have done the valves on this bike since I've owned it about a year and a half. Just shooting the breeze thought I'd share it's never run so good
