Bringing a GL1200 LTD back to life

Post by skopacz »



Greetings all. I have finally started working on my LTD project. I'm trying to make one running bike out of two damaged bikes. One was running until a unfortunate meeting with a tree and the other was in a garage when the building caught fire. While it did not have fire damage the smoke and water damage didn’t do it any favors


Looks good but doesn’t run.
Will a LTD run without the fairing attached?

Yes. Good luck with your project. Water shouldn't be an issue.

Thank you. I had injectors and fuel pump but no spark before I took it back apart.
I noticed a mouse nest under the intake that i somehow missed
