Hey Octane,

I got my wing this August. First thing I did was put new belts on her. With the aid of this forum I found the belts at NAPA and with the aid of Clymers and a Haynes manual I did it. I felt a sense of accomplishment. I changed my belts!!

Now you come along and show everyone how to do it! Thanks to your post, any moron should be able to change their own timing belts!!

Seriously, an excellent post! Thanks for sharing. I wish I had read your post before I changed mine. The notion of manually turning the engine over to make sure nothing hits - brilliant! Much better than pushing the starter button with crossed fingers. Fortunately this alternate technique worked for me and all is OK.

Thanks again

Thanks WF!

As to how this will work on later models, somebody else will

have to chip in, as I know very very little about them.

Regards

Excellent post indeed!!

Is it similar when doing it on a 81 GL1100?
It is the same for GL1000 and GL1100. I used Octanes how to when I did my GL1100 a year ago and thanks to that success, I did my GL1000 when I bought it this summer.

Which Goldwinger is a foreigner? 1984 or another?

If you're talking about me Exavid I'm on the same North American continent that you live on.

I'm a '57 transplant from SoCal so I "really" am a foreigner to the rest of the planet.

hi and thanks for your [how to] on the changing of timing belts. i noticed that the thread referred to the gw1000. since i have a 1984 standard i was wondering if these instructions pertained also to the 1200 standards.

thanx scot.

Scot, the process is essentially the very same as above for the GL1200. The only difference being that the belts for the GL1000 and GL1100 are differentthan the belts forthe GL1200.
