    Hi everyone, I am a new member and new motorcycle rider. I just bought my first 'real' bike - an 81 GL500.

    Just picked up an 82' GL500 Silverwing from a friend who is moving out of state. He bought it a year ago from a mechanic/driving test examiner. The bike has just shy of 50,000 miles on it. My first go with the starter yielded mixed results. The engine will "fire" but won't stay running...

    Hey everyone, Had a weird process of starting my Silverwing after sitting for the winter. When starting it, I pulled both plug wires off to make sure I could hear a spark (tick tick tick), then with both plug wires pushed back on the bike would not start despite choke, no choke etc... I then...

    Hey everyone, figured I'd make a thread saying hello. Got my first motorcycle about a week ago. It is a 1982 GL500 Silverwing interstate.

    Hi everyone. So i just started my first project bike, a 1982 GL500. I've been tearing it down rather haphazardly, only sometimes referring to the shop manual (not smart) and ran into a problem with the front end. While dismantling the front brakes (this model has dual disc brakes), the left...
