Cool thanks. I tried to loosen them both before I even took them out of the trees. One loosend and the other didnt. Also wasnt sure if I could get to the hole thru there.Thanks again. I will try the old allen wrench in the hole behind the anti dive trick.

This forum is a good source of information for all of us semi-mechanical types.
I am glad that I am able to share a small bit of knowledge with all the members here.

Thanks, I have been looking for a tutorial for the GL1800. I have heard that the GL1200 fork seal reuilds are very similar as the GL1800, is that true?

I am needing mine rebuilt, my main concern right now is that it is my only mode of transportation and if I get into the rebuild and halfway through eithermess something up or find somethingmessed up or broken. So far this is the best tutorial that I have found on a fork seal job.



Either way, I am bookmarking it for reference. Thanks

hi all i am new here i found a 82 Aspencade w/32800 miles and i am very thankful to this site and its members for it has helped me rebuild my rear brake system and replace my timing belts. I wanted to change the fork oil and after reading differ forums and reading of forks leaking after boil changes. I decided to just rebuild the forks so i will know what i have and i will have an accurate maintenance log. that said Scott your tutorial is a big help although i have some questions 1st you show upper and lower bushings when looking for parts i only b
see a bushing does this include both or do i need to look harder and order upper and lower. 2nd what is the prefered oil wieght to use and what is the proper measure lots of conflicting answers. 3rd you stated this was a 1200 forck and it is the same as a 1100 except for there will not be the two washers and spring on the end, but a cap instead. did i understand this correctly and my bike is a 82 GL1100A. all replies are welcomed thanks all

thanks for the tutorial,makes me feel brave enough to try this on my 1200.
i had a few questions:
do you have part numbers for all seals and bushings that are being replaced here?
what kind of oil do you recommend?
can this be done on the bike, if so is there a link to a tutorial on that as well?
