Looks like some changes through out the production of the 1100s, also rear tires changed ...

1980/81 used 130/90-17 68H

1982/83 used 140/90-16 71H



GL-1100 Gear Ratios:
Trans Primary

Trans Secondary
1st
2nd
3rd
4th
5th
Final Drive

All 1980 / 81:

1.708
0.973 *

2.500
1.667
1.286
1.065
0.909
3.091

In 1982 looks like changes in3 & 4 & 5 & final drive ratios from 1980 / 81:


1.708
0.973 *

2.500
1.667
1.250
1.000
0.829
3.100

In 1983 looks like changes in TransSecondary & 1st gear ratios from 1982. Trans primary affects overall gearing likefinal drive ratio would.


1.708
0.897 *
2.642
1.667
1.250
1.000
0.829
3.100


Looks to me like the Trans Primary and 2nd gear ratios were the only unchanged ratios over the 4 years.
