Hi all

My name is Allan from Wales in UK. Just about to buy GL1000 looking to learn what to look for before buying. Did own GL1100 years ago. Told the one I am looking at is import from canada. Is 1978 mod with clocks on tank has top half fairing panniers and box. When I buy will let you know how it goes although it does have problem statrting and sounds if timing is slightly out.

A big warm welcome taffallan, good to have you on the site. :waving:

The KZ model you are looking to buy are a goodlooking solid bike, and that one sounds like it is pretty sorted ready for touring, what with the half fairing and boxes.

A couple of things worth checking out to get you going......

Find out when the timing belts were changed and if no definative answer, then get them done anyway. Not that there is a history of them breaking, jsut that if one does the results are catastrophic on a Wing engine.

Check the left side removeable frame section, below the engine for any serious rust as they are prone to rotting if not looked after.

Same goes for the centre stand, check that it moves freely up and down and that again there is no rot around the mounting points.

The bonus with the older model Wings is that most everything is visable, so you should be able to give it a throrough checking over.

See if the tool roll is present, not a big deal but if it is present, a) you won't have to buy one and b) I tend to think that itis a sign that previous owners weren't negligent. I think on the KZ it would be located in the faux tank centre tray, in front of the filler cap for the fuel.

Keep us informed of how the purchace goes and maybe we will see you in North Wales for the Mini Meet & Greet and even in Scotland for the main Meet & Greet at the end of April, begining of May. ( details of both in the events forum):):)

Enjoy the site and please visit often.
