GL1100 Fork Seal Replacement - Pictures?

#1

Post by wren337 »

Hi all, first post, apologies if this has been asked and answered.

I'm getting ready to replace the fork seals on my 82 GL1100 and it seems "the" writeup of this is Roady's
"Fork Seal Replacement - by Roady - GL1100" at viewtopic.php?t=11831

Unfortunately all the pictures are missing. Does anyone have an old PDF or any copies of the pictures?

Thanks
Nathan

Those pics were on Dan's server. I will shoot Roady a pm and see if he still has them.

My YouTube video will should show you what you need to know:

The forks I rebuilt in the video were from a 73 VF750F, but the actual design is quite similar to what you have on your GL1100.

Thanks all. I do have the PDF of the service manual and I'll read that before I get started.
Just wanted to see it from as many angles as possible first.

I did my timing belts a month ago following all the guides I could find and it went well.

I agree.
if you are unsure about something, you can't have to much information

I contacted Roady and he is going to try and update that post with the correct pictures today.
