Yeah a cable clutch feathers easier than an older hydraulic that has sticky seals or for that matter leaks, my 95 seems to have a certain spot where it hangs just a bit when I let out on it. I was riding both the 95 Wing and the 95 Virago today, apples and oranges.

Certainly a refresher getting on the featherweight Virago after riding the 95 GL1500.

I prefer a Hyd Clutch, if they are maintained properly they are GREAT!!! and VERY SMOOTH!!!!!!!

The slave cylinder on the back of the engine if it has never been taken apart and cleaned, Should be.

If you do not know if all the clutch fluid has been flushed every year with new DOT 4 Brake fluid for the life of the bike, then the slave cyl. should be taken apart & cleaned.

This is Easy maintenance to do,

There are about 4 bolt that hold on the slave cyl. on the back of the engine, easy to get to but you have to lay on the ground, get some card board, 4 bolts out, slave cyl. comes out in your hand, pump clutch once or twice to make piston come out of bore, then prepare your self for all the Crap in there, it will be ugly.

Then i would pull the slave cylinder off, the back of the engine, take the piston out, and inspect it and the bore, clean everything, you may have/PROBABLEY have either rust/ and LOADS of Dirt and Grime in this location.

Making your bike NOT shift as well as it could/should.

Clean it and you will have a much improved shift, it will surprise you how much difference there will be. that is as long as you bleed it correctly and get the air out after.

Current Bikes,
1983 GL1100 72K 32DFT Single 2-bbl Progressive Carb, and Runs Excellent,
1984 GL1200A 55K Reverse Trike Project, Single 2bbl. Progressive carb

1988 GL1500/6 Phantom Grey 2-bbl SCC Trike Mustang GT Rearend, Rear Disc Brakes, HD Mufflers
2005 Burgman 650 20K
07' M109R 1855 miles 130hp 120ft lb torque Reverse Trike 99' Miata front suspension
2013 Honda NC700X 4k, AVG 77.68mpg

That is usually the first thing I do with any of the bikes I pick up and ride, thats flushing the fluids, I use synthetic Dot 4 in all brake and clutch systems, synthetic 75-85 gear lube in the differentials, Rotella T-6 synthetic 5-40 in the engines and last but not least the cooling system gets flushed and if needed a dose of white vinegar to clean it then I use Peak Global and distilled water.
Right now I am riding three different bikes, the 95 Wing, the 95 Virago and in about an hour or so I am heading to work to get on the 82 Wing to clean the carbs and check its running condition, for that trip I will be hopping on the 89 Venture Royale, its first ride of the season.

Think of the 84' GL1200 as a larger displacement GL1100.

The 84' GL1200 has a Clutch & trans like the 83' GL1100.

Your 84' engine has a Hydrualic slave cylinder on the rear of it, you could put hydraulic clutch on your GL1100 you would need a hyd. clutch master from a salvage yard.

Or you could pull the Cable pull clutch cover, off of the GL1100 and put it on the 84' GL1200 engine to make it a cable pull clutch.

What I am saying is you have a GL1200 that is more like your GL1100 than the 85' and up GL1200 are.

That is good for you as they are like engines, if it were to have a 85'-87' GL1200 they would be to much different, not much swappable

The 85' GL1200 and up Clutch & transmissions are way Different.
