I just bought a 1976 GL1000 with only 16,900 miles. It looks great. It had a lot of maintenance done (including timing belts, tires & all fluids) 3000 miles ago but that was in 1998.
The engine sounded good for my test ride but now, above 2500 rpm, I hear & feel bad rattle-type vibration. I'm worried. I won't run it until I get it looked at. Any ideas?
Thanks, Rennie.

Well, I started it today as I'm curious about this noise. It started good & sounds okay at idle. When the revs hit about 2500 a bad rattle & vibration comes from the left cylinder head. I assume this is the valves malfunctioning. I don't have it licensed yet so will bring it in on the truck, probably a lot safer.
