They should bolt right on... try it, see how it works. The 1100 carbs, however, are more forgiving when it comes to tuning etc. The coils should be fine.

How will you get the 1100 engine to work with the GL1000 points setup? Or is it possible to get the 1100 engines electronic ignition to work on the gl1000?

Simply a matter of consulting the wiring diagram and modifying it to work. The coils should work regardless... might have to change the ballast resistor for the electronic ignition.

Electronic ignition only replaces the points and condenser.With the electronic ignition you'll have to find outhow it's getting power, which leads go to which coils, and where it's grounded.
