hi all

just got myself a sweet gl1100. low km at 34000. shes tidy and original through out. been doing a few mods and repairs to her to get her ready to ride for the next season.

heres how she looks.

problems are. she runs bad after a quick carb clean. lots of popping and banging with te new filters. hard to rev through.

need ideas for mounting front fender need clearance ofr mud once knobberlie tyre is on.


any mods you would do to get her ready for the woods?
