I brought home my 'new to me' 1983 GL1100 last weekend and the tinkering has begun. I picked it up for $1800 so I wasn't in the DogHouse for too long. It has 20k miles on it and it looks to be in pretty good condition.
The guy I bought it from said he replaced the water pump, starter, calipers, tires, paint,and timing belt about four years ago and only put a couple hundred miles on the bike since. It has spent most of its life sitting the garage so I'm sure things are going to come up.
I took it out for a morning ride and a new sound started coming out of the Tach. I'm hoping this isn't a symptom for something bigger. The performance of the bike wasn't effected so I thought I would thought I would ask for your feedback before I crack anything open. I made a quick video so everyone could hear it.https://youtu.be/uKkp-CQDE88
