    Someone hit my bike while it was parked on campus, i’ve been at work all day and i didn’t bring the bike. She layed for a few hours before a friend saw it and picked it up. He started it to make sure all was good after she stood upright for an hour or so and he couldn’t pull plugs due to rain...

    Need a new right side foot peg assembly and a piece that goes over the front tire that would hold the forks together to prevent wobbling for a gl500i. Anyone have anything compatible?

    I recently purchased a honda gl500i, i've yet to clean the carbs as I don't know what I'm doing, it idled at around 200rpm when I got it. I've since gotten it to idle at 1100-1200 after its warmed up, but for now I want to work on removing the front fairing and mounting all of the stock front...

    When the fuel valve is in the ‘on’ position the fuel flows as it should. When the valve is turned to ‘off’ or ‘reserve’ the valve leaks around the selector lever [off, on, reserve] where it enters the body of the valve. I run the machine without difficulty but it would be nice to have the...

    Hey everyone hows it going, I'm happy to be a part of this forum! I'm writing to you from Seattle having just picked up an 81 GL500i over the weekend. I looked around to see if I could find a similar thread but I couldn't, so figured I'd say hi and ask an easy question to the pro enthusiasts :)...

    So I'm looking at swapping the front end of my CX500 with a GL500 Interstate for the dual rotor / caliper look. The only thing I'm not crazy about (aesthetically) is the air hose and fillers on the top of the fork tubes. I was wondering what I'd be losing (other than adjustability) by...

    Good Afternoon CX500 forum, I figured it was about time I start a build thread for my GL500 cafe project, I wanted to do this for a couple reasons, firstly because I would like to provide help to anyone who may be struggling with the same issues I did/still am, secondly it would be great to...

    All, Looking for some help while I'm working on my wife's bike. It's a 1982 GL500I with dual front brakes. I recently replaced the fork seals (pretty straightforward job) and now I'm trying to mount the front axle back up and it seems like the lower fork legs are too spread apart. Almost like...

    I've read a number of posts regarding the twin front calipers on a 82 GL500i. Nothing quite lines up with my problem. Thought I'd toss it out to forum members who know more than I do. Appreciate any insight. My GL500i front brakes work fine. No problems. Except that after I ride for a...

    Hello, I am looking to do a conversion of my original mono shock to a different better looking/ better performing shock and I wanted to know if there were any suggesting of mono shocks from other bikes that would convert over to the Gl500 relatively easily, i.e. require no welding. I know some...

    I sadly had to sell my GL500i a while ago, and have had these bags sitting around ever since. Paid $150 for the set, only asking $100. I would prefer local pickup in Cleveland, OH. I would be willing to look into shipping, but it won't be cheap for these things! All details + pics are on the CL...

    Hey guys, turns out the previous owner broke the bleeder off of the left caliper of my 82 Gl500i. After messing with it for a while I decided the remaining part is pretty stuck so I'm looking to buy another one. If anybody has one let me know, Thanks - Zac

    Please help! I picked up my first Motorcycle a couple of months ago (an 82 GL500i) and I am having what I believe to be an electrical issue with it. It started the other day when I rode two-up for the first time. After traveling a couple of miles the bike started to run funny, would not make...

    My gl500i has been sitting in my barn for about a year with a significant oil leak on the top right side of the front engine gasket (just behind the engine mount). It has about 55k miles and a few cosmetic problems. It has all three bags, the passenger seat that can be swapped with the top...
