Hello all, I just purchased an 82 Honda GL 1100 GW today. I got it at a pretty good deal, and its in pretty good shape. Upon getting it home, I noticed something about the clutch. When the engine is off, the clutch is very stiff. When the engine is running, the clutch is loose. There is a large amount of play in the clutch when running, and it is apparent that it is not releasing the clutch hardly (gear clash when putting in gear). I have a service manual forthcoming, but I am curious as to what this could be? I am pretty handy mechanically, and don't doubt that I could fix whatever is wrong. Is this model a manual or hydraulic clutch? Is the clutch needing a cable or throw-out bearing? Also, anything to watch out for in this model? I was told the timing belts were done recently. It has 63,000 miles on it.
