Does anybody here know the answer to this question?Will a set from a 1980-1982 GL1100 fit on a 1976 GL1000? I only need the left and right manifolds to fit. The remainder of the exhaust is custom. I am not using a crossover pipe. There is a guy locally parting out a 1982 GL1100 and I would like to score the manifolds if they are in nice shape.
Mind if I bust in here?I see you aren't getting a lot of help on this one.
1975 to 1979 Gl1000 headers and mufflers fit.
The 1100 headers fit, and the mufflers can be made to fit, though you may end up blocking off the crossover pipe.
The 1200 may fit. I haven't had any experience with them.
I am running my '78 headers with 36 inch straight pipes and no crossorvers.
Got any pics of that set up?Sorry, in the middle of moving.
Mine runs like the proverbial Raped Ape of yore.
I am also running a Weber progressive 28/30 carb on it.
38 to 40 mpg, and has no trouble getting up to freeway speeds with two people on it. That's 75 mph around here.
I got real tired of fiddle-ing with those four little carbs on the stock manifold.
