Why won't I just learn to keep my mouth shut when it comes to 1200 problems!

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."

I will be going over to look at the bike tomorrow. I'll take some jumper cables and a few tools. I don't expect to get it moving, but if it turns over and runs...

The clutch master is pretty well shot, I believe, from looking at the pics.

That is a good deal, but I do not think it's OEM. Thanks for the information.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

The sight glass is definitely shot but those are available on Amazon.

Thank you for all that info guys, not sure how many miles is on it to answer chilidawg's question. I know Dennis is kind enough to offer to help me today so I am sure we will be able to figure out what will be going on hopefully.

What would be wrong with non OEM parts?

The list is endless. And often OEM costs no more than the junk.

In the case of the stator, though, OEM isn't available and the aftermarket stators often last for minutes, once running. Let's hope your stator isn't an issue.
