i believe its pretty much like the 1200s i don't know why they want you to pull the plug and turn the engine from the rear when you can much easier turn it from the front crank? looks like to me the timming marks are much easier to spot on the 1100 there appers to be only one set. t mark in the rear sight hole lined up timming marks lined up in the front with the up mark up. just make sure you turn the engine through a few times to make sure you got it and there is no binding or dead stops.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

This one as mentioned above, written for the GL1000's but applies to the 1100's also. Part numbers for the belts may differ.

You are right. Cranking it from the back is just more work.

But as a whole, the tutorial will help you through it. It helped me to successfully change the belts on my 1200.
