Anyone know if thermostat and radiator hoses are available for the GL1200 from mother Honda? Since I have it torn apart, might as well do some preventative maintenance.



Going into the head now, wish me luck. (Replacing head gasket).

As far as I know they are available. You are not going to like the price though.

Most here, I think, are buying aftermarket at auto-parts-stores.

That's what I did, and I saved enough money to ride my bike to Europe and up the Eiffel Tower in Madrid.

Anyway, the part numbers can be found around here somewhere.

Why ain't we ridin'?

No Auto Parts Available has a thermostat that works just fine for like
9 bucks. Part number is NAPA 101. Have them in both my 84 GL1200.
No problems at all.

There are hoses that can be cut to fit the bottom and as well as the top.
Although not perfect in shape I have had zero problems with the hoses for two
riding seasons now. No kinks. Part numbers are NAPA 7733 or 8101. A lot
less expensive then OEM. I think you can make both hoses out of the 7733.

But let me check the numbers tomorrow for you, just to make sure.

Radiator cap: Stant #45868 or NAPA #703-2445.

Check the parts out to see if they will work for you.

You can go that route but be sure that pressure is correct on the cap,pressure is stamped on the top.Is pressure rateing in newton/metric pressure or standard pounds? 4 psi could make a big difference.

Hoses are cool and works.

Best to start a new post with your question so folks don't get stuff mixed up. That said, there was just a thread on this recently where it was pretty much decided your best option is mother honda.
