I've got an 1982 GL500i Silverwing. I'm looking for a rear differential. It seems mine is giving it up at 86,000 miles.

Maybe it's just me but not sure what exactly you mean by "differential." I am tearing down an 82 GL500 and have the whole rear end except the spline off the wheel.

I'd let it go cheap and since I'm heading to Barber Fest next week we might be able to meet and save you shipping.

Here's a diagram of the rear assembly. If you point out the part maybe I can help

No differential on a motorcycle, unless it's a tricycle. Since there is only one drive wheel there is no need for the mechanism that allows each drive wheel to turn at different speeds. On motorcycles it's called a final drive.
