I am a new member. I toasted a head gasket and need the specs to put a new one on it for torque. Should I go ahead and change both sides and my timing belt while I am at it?

Welcome to the forum! :waving:


Now, as for the timing belts it depends on when they were changed last time. If you don't know or if they haven't been changed for a long time (about 5 years or some 10.000KM) thenyou should change them, rather then taking a risk of one getting broken. And about the other side head gasket, well it's not realy necessairly to change it if you are 100% sure that it is good, but you will probably feel better if you do change the both sides. Good luck!

:waving:The image below is the torque sequence for the GL1100 heads.Per the note don't forget to coat the threads and underside of the boltheadswith the specified grease which you can get atyou local dealer.
