Hi All,

I'm a new member andI want to thank all ahead of time for starting this forum. Looks great from what I've read.

I just bought my dad's 82 GL1100 standard (72k) and am going thru it starting with tires, brakes, shocksand timing belts. While prepping for the timing belt job I found thisforum because I threw in the towel tryingto remove the radiator. Very nice to readthat others ran into the very same roadblocks.

My dadincluded the Honda service manual that was given to himbut it is for80-81 not the 82.Can anyone tell me if there are anyimportant differencesbetween the 80-81 and 82?That can be a very loaded question but I'm interested in areas such as brakes, timing belts and valve adjusting.

Regards,

BBQWing

Braking system is different. Still operates the same, but calipers, brake pads and master cylinders are different. A few other minor differences, but that's about it for maintenance items.

Check the downloaded manual to see if any other adjustment specs may have changed, like valve clearances, plug type, etc...
