On a 4 cylinder wings you only have to take off the shelter to get to the cap and the bottom of the radiator will swing out to get the belt covers off. Hold it back with a bungee.

Gates/Napa belts come with a sticker you can fill out and stick on it somewhere, like on the air cleaner cover. You are going to have to take the shelter off anyway to be able to fill the radiator. It's not a hard job.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

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

My local Discount tire would not even top off my doughnut spare a few weeks ago, because it was over 10 years old, and I was there spending $500 on new front tires .

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."
