Could be the clutch cable itself... Take both ends off and see how freely it will move. Or just the end at the engine.

Happened to me on 2 different bikes.

2012-GL1800- 34,700 miles
88-GL1500-124k+ mi. SOLD
78-Honda CB750K- 72k+ mi.
67-Suzuki 250cc T20-X6 Hustler-fun to ride yet

Bridgestone Exedra- front

Pirelli Snow Control 3-R/F
8800mi on it so far @36psi and less

Pirelli Centurato P1 87V R/F-took off with 14.5k on it and mounted new P1. Maybe 2k more left but had small cut, so in trash.

Does the 1000 clutch have the damper plate? Losing rivets would explain the symptoms.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Try putting some slack in the cable, again.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It's an 1100, not a 1000.

Ok will check and adjust cable. I will get back. Black ice everywhere this AM so I took my 64 f100 instead. Hate not having my bike with me.

Really?!! Nowhere in this thread did you mention that. Stupid us, we all assumed it was the bike listed in your profile.

Anyway, yes the 1100s have a damper plate and the symptoms are very similar to those caused by a failing damper plate.

if your profile model bike is wrong, please go to the UserCP and change it.

Thumbs up

I would put a new cable on it first and adjust it right, then see if you've still got a problem, just make sure you route it correctly.
Thinking about it, that could be your problem, it can pretty easily be routed wrong, seem to remember that gave me some clutch slip before.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-GL1100-GL-1100-GL1100I-clutch-cable-OEM/401544184589?epid=1511801031&hash=item5d7de6030d:g :zjcAAOSwwE5Wbbe-:rk:11f:0
This is the most expensive one on eBay right now, but it's the genuine article, you can get them for $16.
I'm not giving you any crap, because what your riding was my first ever Goldwing in '84. Awesome machine.

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."

It's pretty easy to check if the cable is causing the problem on an 1100. Pull the clutch and release it while watching the arm on the right side of the transmission. if it drops at the same rate you release the lever and has some free play when it is at the bottom of it's stroke (provided you have some free play adjusted into the cable) the cable is good.

Billy: I acquired and restored an 85 Aspencade last year and have the same issue. Hammer down 3rd and 4 Th. gears heavy acceleration the clutch slips. With a wink to other Insistent posts here- Mine is certainly hydraulic. Now I swapped fluid in my first round of service so bleeding the clutch master will be first but next would be clutch service. Though the styling of this ride is dated the bike is magnificent at speed- especially above 70. From -38 degrees in Wisconsin.
