I'm putting my 75 GL 1000 back together today and can't remember how the cylinders are numbered ( I know i know). The plug wires are still connected to the coils and ARE numbered so that isnt an issue. I'm going to attempt a diagram here so bare with me....

This question does get asked a lot. Perhaps we should have this added to the new reference section?

Norm, I would check with a local Honda dealer if I were you guy's.

My Master Honda tech here has an old DTB (dealer bulliton) that says the bottom ends (crank/bearings cannot be replaced) He say it will freeze up the minute its turned over after torque is applied to the split casing.

Keep in mind this is just what I was told, yes I do trust him. But it would hurt for you guys to look into this prior to completion!:stumped:

The facts are that the conrod and caps are matched sets, you shouldn't mix & match them. I personally wouldn't ever dream of putting used pistons into my Wing, too much work pulling it all apart again if you get problems.

The cylinder # layout is probably one to have in the new reference part of the forum.
