Steve , Thanks for fixing the Progressive Shock link. It looks as good as the timing belts directions, and that job was very straight forward. Again let me state THIS FORUM is the BEST!!! Everyone as been great responding to questions. Just put on about 1200 miles since I put myself in the saddle a couple of weeks ago, and looking to many more ! GW

I did the front speakers yesterday
Whew !!!
What a handfull just for speakers
but it all came out all right...learned alot of pitfalls
to watch out for...
Had to take the speakers back out of the holes twice
to reposition the windshield position cranks,
they kept falling back down inside the console space.
I bought 4inch speakers not 4.5 and luckily there
was enough plastic between the inner edges and
the original holes that I could use a small circular file
to lengthen the holes closer the the inside hole
and the speakers fit and perform beautifully.

I wished I had taken pictures now.....LOL

Are there any coming for 1000s? Just wondering if it makes sense to keep looking in this thread.

If anyone with a gl1000 were to submit tutorials, I believe the wingnut would be happy to add them to the list.

What exactly are you looking for? Im sure any question you can think of asking will answered by someone or a bunch of someones . You dont really need a sticky, although it is helpful to have all the info in one place.

Great section this, my first job is to change the timing belts. 12 years old 41,400 miles and no record of it being done.

Welcome Bulldogdrummond. I believe this is the article you need for timing belts:
