Hi, new here......I didn't know there was a Naked GoldWing board until I was looking for front fork diagrams. Glad I found this site!

Welcome from Wisconsin! The 1100's are actually pretty easy to get naked, especially if you're not concerned with it being 100% stock. You don't mention how far along you are in the process, but if you have any questions, the gang here will surely put in their 2 cents worth.
If you haven't done so already, it is highly recommended that you change the timing belts! There's a link in my signature to a nice writeup on common issues with 'new2me' Wings. Oh, and we LOVE pics, lol!
Enjoy the ride!

Welcome. I can tell you first hand that there are people here at NGW that really know their stuff.
I'm taking no credit myself, but this site really helped me.
Best of luck on your project.
