Title: Doing the 1/3 Ton - 1978 GL1000
Post by: Rich Ard on Aug 07, 2013, 00:30:49
Brought it home tonight.

(http://i.imgur.com/vLJFo5Fl.jpg)

Top box, trailer hitch (!), sidecar electric hookup came off tonight. Decided to leave the rear rack on for the time being; hiding the wiring to the Bates bags will be something of an endeavor and I'll wait until I have an evening to do that. Much of the auxiliary wiring was done with wirenuts and splice connectors so I'll be going through that spaghetti - but aside from that, and painting the guards satin black, what you see above is how it's going to stay.

I am considering putting a cupholder on it so I can grab something on my way to work in the morning, which is my only complaint about riding a motorcycle to work. God help me.

Pluses:

- fast as hell
- room to carry a whole bunch of camping stuff or eight gallons of milk
- more comfortable than the sofa I'm sitting on right now, which is pretty comfortable
- nobody is going to steal it
- when idling, sounds kind of like a truck
- all major maintenance done with just shy of 45K miles on the clock, two owners, the last one owns a vintage motorcycle shop

Minuses:

- tach doesn't work and they're apparently made of precious metal
- I can't even bring myself to pretend that the hot college girls are going to look at me
- it took five minutes to turn it around in my driveway

5 minutes? A one legged / 180° burnout takes less than 30 seconds.

If you decide to lose those sidecovers for any reason, I know somebody that wants them.....

Will check the tach cable and cxman, I'll keep you in mind. If you happen to have one of the little sidecover fasteners around, right now I have zipties holding the right side cover on.

5 minutes? A one legged / 180° burnout takes less than 30 seconds.

If you decide to lose those sidecovers for any reason, I know somebody that wants them.....

I don't know that this beast is keen on burnouts, but I haven't tried!

Part of the process of purchasing this was having 'the talk' with the seller, kind of like if I were taking his firstborn out for an evening on the town. Part of the extraordinary purchase price was that he gets the first whack at purchasing it back if I decide to sell it, and that I won't cut it up. :)

On a side note, my wife got her little CB125 to 75 mph the other day, and was excited about doing the 3/4 ton, as she put it. One of the funniest things I'd heard in a while! Lol.

Post by: Mydlyfkryzis on Aug 07, 2013, 20:52:56
A CB360 is about as fast as an 883, but smoother. And a CB360 is not smooth...LOL

The Sportster would be on my radar if it had about 150 pounds less weight,  and a little more HP....My 750 Honda Nighthawk weighs less than a Sporty and has almost 2x the horsepower, and much smoother.

But I thank HD and the Sportsters. Honda and the other UJMs would not of been so popular back in the late 60's if the Sporty was a better bike.

Even Rich Ard put a Honda Tank on his Yamaha and it added 0.001 seconds to his 0-60 speed.  Honda means performance.

Oddly, the GL1000 is closer to the Sportster in weight and displacement. And a Gl1000 can hold a family of four.

Lol, it is an 883. I don't know what I want to replace it with yet. I just don't want the payment right now, and it's so damn expensive to do anything with the EFI bikes. My old CM400 is getting ridden more now, and gets a lot more looks in a town full of Big Twins.

Much of the auxiliary wiring was done with wirenuts and splice connectors so I'll be going through that spaghetti - but aside from that, and painting the guards satin black, what you see above is how it's going to stay.

For me, one of the beauties of the GL1000 is the relative simplicity. Now, many of you DTT folks will scoff - but I ride a GL1800 daily, and compared to it, the 1000's were definitely simple. Points, carbs (Ok, 7 jets in each of the 4 carbs isn't too simple), and no computer! My experience with the carbs is to avoid ethanol if at all possible, and add a LITTLE Techron every-other tank. Many GL owners still use Rotella dino oil in the older bikes, blue jug synth in the 1800's.

Next - lay her down on the engine guards and turn backwards, put your butt on the seat, and learn to pick up a heavy bike.

That is a very true statement, get flashlight, lie on garage floor, point light, try and see oil if it is really clean oil you have to turn the little wipey thing and jiggle the bike a little to see it move ever so slightly.  Thank god my bike doesn't use much oil between changes cause I hate trying to top it off, one second it looks a little low, a second later its over the full marks.

I saw that mod on NGW, I think  I may do it to as I am starting to not bend well, seeing is still good but man I hate crawling on the garage floor. And I have had to do it 3 days in a row fixing damn cars.

PS sorry for carrying on conversations in your thread Rich, but it does keep it up at the top, easy to find ;D

The only challenging thing about a gl1000 is reading the oil sight glass

Its a GL1100, but you think its bad on just a bike, try checking the oil when there is a hack bolted on,
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y73/PenontISDT/sidecar-wing003.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/PenontISDT/media/sidecar-wing003.jpg.html)

Can't even begin to crawl under that rig. If my skinny son ain't around to check it, pretty much have to get a set of field glasses and lay on the ground out by the hack wheel!!

Have put a couple of those front mount dipsticks on customer bikes, but just never seem to be able to get around to putting one on my own. THey do seem to work quite well and the customers seem to like them.

Bought a mint '84 Aspencade with a matching California Friendship I rig this summer. Got it from the 2nd owner, who had bought it from an estate sale three years ago. He also had a Victory and a VTX1800. He bought the hack rig for no other reason than to give his dogs a ride.

Don't have a dog, but what I've found is that little kids just love sidecar rides, so much so, some even ask for ride for a birthday present!.

i tig welded a exhaust pipe adapters from advance onto the stock header where the muffler rotted off

they are 1 3/4 i think they were like 4 dollars each or something

those are some reverse cone muffler i got from a buy out i think they are for  a triumph?

i was able to use the stock foot peg bolt hole and plate to hold it up

the muffler slid right over the 1 3/4 adapter and clamp down it was a 20 minute job been like that for 4

years already

sound good and works well

Rich, check a few things out first. First off determine which rotor or if both are causing the problem. Then try switching sides with them. If it is just one, you can try removing it, rotating it to different mounting holes and remounting it. Sometimes those little tricks can take away a pulsating feeling

BTW, CXman...nice '78. Always thought they were one of the best years for the naked wings.

Just found this thread.   Nice GL.  I had an 1100 and loved it.  It was more reliable than either of the sportsters I've owned.  And even with over 100K miles on the clock, it would leave them in the dust.   And it would steal attention away from some of the big Harleys I would park next to (rode with a mostly Harley group).  With maintenance, they'll run forever.

Probably looks better inside, too. I spent about an hour and a half last night with a toothbrush, rubbing alcohol, mineral spirits, #0000 steel wool, and several shop towels. It's all greased back up now waiting for replacement brushes (one of the two was only about 3mm long and had been wearing crooked).

Hopefully, if they come in on Wednesday, I can put it all back together and ride on Thursday - when it should approach 40F for the first time in months. :)

Did you have to replace the bearings in the starter, or just grease them?

when they get like that you should see if you can find someone with a armature tester

i dont rebuild them when they get that bad anymore without testing them as they tend

to have some bad windings and will work well when cold but then wont crank over properly once the engine

and starter get hot they wil crank over slowly so if its a customer bike i just put on new as with labour to clean the stater

and a brush kit ts cheaper for the customer to just to open the box and put new

so if you need and bits for your i have a pile of them

good luck

I just bought a house in AA in September, and it's in the southeast corner, near Yipsi.  Should be easier to get to the Tuesday bike night...

I don't think I'm going to be able to make it to the Thaw, sadly.  I have to coordinate moving our campus wide repair and support operations in April and May due to the building our building is attached to being renovated for the next 18ish months.  On the plus side, it may involve a promotion for me.  There's also the little problem of not having a reliable bike, or at least a bike with more than 10 miles under its belt.

If this were a customer's bike I'd suggest the same - but at ten bucks for the brushes it was worth a shot, and previously it was easy to start when the engine was warm and intermittent when cold.

Unfortunately it is still 20F outside.

Mid-O is still dicey for me, trying to make it work. And I do have less beard.

Ok, bear with me here, make a secure enough tiedown for the "hauled" bike so the passenger can ride on the bike on the flatbed attached to the Goldwing.  Bonus points if the "hauled" bike can ride off the hauler while the hauler is in motion. 

I'm only half joking - I wonder how unstable it would make the rig if someone was on the "hauled" bike?

I'm not even sure if I want to meet you now...

But in all seriousness, I'm excited to put some faces to "user"names for the first time.
