Buy or download a manual. And unless you lose your computer, you can just look stuff up, print out what you need at the time, and not worry about getting your manuals all full of grease!:DOr spend an hour looking for them like I used to do all the time!



Good wrenchin!

Try to shoot for .016 And go to Randakks sight for the split timing tips.Its a special way to time your gl 1000.It works great for my 75.
