Just to return for a moment to the whirring and clunk part of this tread, my engine has done that periodically for the 15 years I've been riding it.

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."
