Timing chain retro fit/fuel Injection

Post by northerndrifter » Mon Sep 01, 2014 7:30 pm

Is there such an animal as a timing chain retro fit for the GL1500SE to replace the timing belts?

I own a 2000 GL1500SE and just replaced the belts due to age and not mileage. The procedure cost me in excess of $600.00 and DIY is not an option as I have no room to dis-assemble the bike.

Same for fuel injection; is there a cost effective retro fit or after market RELIABLE fuel injection conversion kit?

Thanks for your time in this.

Cost effective - probably not. Not aware of any retros in that way. The cost would make the timing belt change look like a deal.

Really doesn't take that much space to disassemble a Wing. If you have a place to park that's about all you need. A box for the parts and you're golden.

You won't have to do a timing belt for awhile now. When you do bring it to my place.

There is no FI retro fit. I only know of one person who is doing his own and he has been working on getting it running properly for years.
