UPDATE!

This weekend I have ordered the lever and switch assembly for the clutch side. It should be here later this month!

I am also coordinating with a friend to transport the bike home from the shop it sits at. Once it's home, the evaluation and testing will begin!

UPDATE!

The bike is now home, as a friend helped me move it this evening. The Lever assembly also came in today, so work can begin soon!

Also: I think Freebie may have made my friend fall in love with GL1200's and Gl1100's. . . :mrgreen:
If he can get the second red 1200 I mentioned in my previous topic, He'll be joining the forum to share his rebuild project.

You are going to enjoy your 1200 once you get it on the road, so will your friend.

Cheers

Utilizing tips posted on this marvelous site, I pulled the spark plugs and manually turned the engine over! It turns without binding!

:yahoo:

If I can work out what a video shows online, I will be re-connecting the hydraulic clutch since the lever and master cylinder came in! After that, if I can do it without terrible things happening, I will then try firing electrons at the wiring to see if anything good happens. . .

Sounds promising! Good luck getting the clutch bled and working. Dreading that job here.

Would recommend rebuild of clutch slave. Lots of crud will build up and be deposited in the slave cylinder. Only two parts needed for rebuild, approximately $15.00 USD.

Cheers

Would that require taking the engine out of the frame?

No. Some of the bolts are a pain to get to, but it can be removed without pulling the motor. Oh, and get a cheap vacuum bleed. Makes it so much easier.

I also install speed bleeders on the brake calipers and the clutch slave. Makes flushing of the lines a one person job and very easy.

Here's the site: http://www.speedbleeder.com/

+1 on the hand operated vacuum pump, one of the best tools invented. Other wise, you need to depress the clutch, hold it in, and reach way down to operate the bleeder on the clutch slave cylinder.
