Hi fellow wingers. I bought a 78 GL1000 at the end of last season and thanks to a mild winter in Ontario, a heater in the garage and e-bay, I have managed to get the bike in decent shape. It passed the safety standards inspection and runs very well so far. I need help locating a dip stick kit for the engine oil so I can check the level without standing on my head. If anyone knows where I can get one I would be gratefull. JC Whitney had one listed on their web site, but it is no longer available.

thanks for any leads.

Try Northern Motor Sports in Bradford 905 775-5838. They seem to be able to come up with all kinds of parts for the older wings have helped me alot. And it is just a nice drive from were you live.

thanks for the quick reply. I've been there in the past. I'll send them an e-mail to see if they have a source for the kit.

thanks again.

This is from the latest catalog. I have had one of these for over two years and love it. If you decide to get one, pm me and I'll give you a couple of tips.

Thanks for the URL, I'm just waiting to hear from a local dealer before I order it. It looks like a fairly basic installation. I would appreciate it if you know of something trick that's not in the instructions, etc.

thanks
