    Oil

    Just my opinion, I'd recommend almost any 5W40 or 15W40 Diesel truck CK-4 rated oil as they do not have any friction modifiers and most are safe for the big rigs automatic transmissions clutches. The FK-4 have friction modifiers for better fuel mileage but may rune the clutches. The Shell...

    Oil

    "Honda requires a high detergent, premium quality motor oil to meet the original SE/SF classification........"This was true, WAS. But all modern engine oils are SM, SN and even SP now. They have changed the additives a lot since SF. Use what you want in your bike but I'd advise caution in using...

    Motorycle For Sale 1980 GL1100i FREE

    Dracon, If I start stripping and selling parts It then becomes a hard sell later. Sorry. Maybe closer to mid Spring if no one wants a project for summer riding I'd start stripping it down for parts. All the chrome parts will not go to scrap yard and the Honda Line saddle bags and top box also...

    Oil

    The wet clutch needs a JASO MA rated oil (Japanese Automotive Standards Organization). Most car oils do not have this rating. That said, I have been running Shell Rotella T6 5W40 synthetic in all my bikes since the 1990's. The newest is JASO MA-2, safe for catalytic converters. They are...

    Motorycle For Sale 1980 GL1100i FREE

    I am not in a big hurry to get this bike gone. Spring time is when I'll be able to really pack it out. It could be moved anytime but in a few month snow may block it in. Not sure its worth driving across country to get unless you are coming to Seattle anyway. Drained of all fluids it could fit...

    Motorycle For Sale 1980 GL1100i FREE

    Here's my choices if this does not get taken. For my local scrap yard I have to use a Sawsall to cut the frame up small and NO VIN. The engine I must take apart to separate the steel from aluminum. All plastics have to be cut up small to fit my small trash can. Sadly, it will be gone come...

    The CRASH was at about 15 MPH or less and the forks were very slightly bent. I did break my left shoulder and collar bone in the crash but I rode it home 15 miles.

    Single Carb Conversion 2 Barrel Progressive Holley,Weber 740 carb

    This SCC mod is the first step in getting a good running bike. The next step up is going Fuel Injection. You can get 2 sets of Suzuki Burgman 650 throttle bodies and make runners to mount them where the stock CV carbs were. Then wire in a 'Mini-Squirt' controller to fire all 4 injectors. Go...

    Single Carb Conversion 2 Barrel Progressive Holley,Weber 740 carb

    I have a few Webers laying around but never got around to doing this mod. This SCC mod, a better alternator and axe the stator, the C-5 ignition mod and I think you'd have a good touring ride. :whistling: Too bad you were not closer, I'd let my 1980 GL1100i go just to free up space. Needs...

    Riding Days are Over

    My commute was 17,000 miles per year with little JOY riding. Now after retirement I am doing about 1,500 miles all JOY riding. In June 2018 I am planing a 1,900 mile road trip from Seattle area to Jasper and Banff AB Canada and return down thru Vancouver BC. A fellow EX-Burgman 400 rider now has...

    1156 and 1157 led bulbs?

    One thing to remember is the factory voltage regulator is a SHUNT to ground so any amparage the Stator is putting out that is not used will be shunted to ground so saving power for gas mileage WILL NOT HAPPEN. ;) But if you do the alternator mod and get rid of the stator, good to go. Doing this...

    Its a tough job, but someone HAS to do it. I have had my azz handed to me by a few Harleys but mostly the newer twin cam models. But when one comes down an on ramp, looks over in the HOV lane and see's a Scooter, 9 times out of 10 they till bust over 80 MPH just to get in front of me. They...

    Riding Days are Over

    I too can not flip my leg over a standard seat, let alone a seat with a huge back rest. I also can not pull in a clutch lever in stop and go traffic. This is why I started riding a LARGE 650 cc scooter, 185,000 miles ago. It is an automatic CVT and has a "Step Thru". It weighs about 620 pounds...
