I flushed all of the brake fluids, lubed the lever bushing, installed the EC LED high-beams, refilled the hydraulic rear spring actuator (it was engaging at 10, now it engages at 0), and took it for a test ride.

Checked the Hunley's (my GL1000) points gap and static time - barely opening and about 5 degrees advanced. Fixed both and took her for a ride - wow, what a difference! Don't know how it got there as I don't remember having any of that apart.

Installed a set of Kuryakyn highway pegs for my wife and it put a big smile on her face. We need to play with the height a little more to get them where they make her the most comfortable. The only thing I would change about them is to make them spring loaded so they retract when she's not using them. They put a big smile on her face and we rode about 150 miles this weekend and the pegs let her move around more and she didn't feel so cramped in.

I started it after sitting for two years.

Now I have a new challenge - I have no clutch pressure and I have no idea how to remedy it.

Bleed the clutch and see if it helps. Do you have fluid.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I finally had a run on my 1980 GL1100 after a 6month restoration! 38 miles and all well! From the first 2 photos I purchase it as to the last two tonight.

Replaced old front tire from Michelin pilot active 130/70R18 to a new Avon AV71. Also had to replace the reverse relay. When I went to go into reverse the R light was flashing. We took the trike out and it started raining.
