Thanks to all for the advise and help. To sum it up, I filled the tank with non-ethanol, and the bike started. I purchased a clutch slave cylinder rebuild kit from amazon for ~$25. I did the repair today, and road the bike around town for a few hours. I do enjoy riding again.
- Thanks again

BTW - MotorcycleMD on youtube did a video on slave cylinder rebuild that was helpful, but the most interesting tip was his bleeding technique. He used a hose off of the bleeding valve to a catch can and a pair of needle nose pliers on the outlet of the master cylinder to create a pseudo-"One Way Valve". Apply pressure to the hydraulic line and pump about three or four reservoirs to the catch can. On the last clutch depression, hold it down, tighten the bleed valve, and refill the reservoir before buttoning everything up. Worked like a charm.

Mostly because they don't have anyone that has stayed around long enough to know anything about any model over 10 years old. And they figure it's a way to sell you a new one.

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

Sounds like a motivation issue. I had a Daihatsu Rocky, which only had about 8,000 imported into USA between 1988 and 1992. Most of my spares came from UK or Oz. Only took a few months to get everything I needed. In contrast, the 500,000 GL1500 rolled off the line in 1991. I would think spares should be relatively easy to come by.
