The speedo cable attaches to a driver at the right side of the front wheel, there is a component at the axle of the wheel that the cable screws into. In terms of the forks, the cable usually "floats" in a retainer, but does not fasten, as cable kinks are an issue.

Ive got a gl1100 1982 with air front suspension q-what is the best way to change the front fork to a convensional spring fork and what forks would be the best ?


Hello and thanks for the question,
Your 1982 GL1100 has air assist type of suspension. It has springs in the front as well as the air pressure. This is a heavy bike and the front forks are marginal at best. I have had great results from installing progressive suspension springs and moving up to a heavier fork oil (20wt ) to keep the bike from diving so far during braking.

You should look at having the forks rebuilt with these parts and you will find that the bike handles much better than before.
The springs that are in the bike are old now and should be updated with new style parts.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Front forks leaking


Hello, It is not out of the ordinary to have the forks leaking on a 1982 bike. The forks should be rebuilt with new seals and bushings. It is about a four hour job to do this. One thing to pay close attention to is the inner or chrome portion of the fork. If rust pitts have developed on the inner tube the rebuild will not last. Each time the fork goes up and down over the rust pitts, it tears the seal.
There are special tools required to rebuild the forks so they should be rebuilt by a qualified technician.

Thanks and I hope that this helps,
Steve

How can I stop a 2002 harley lowrider FXDL from bottoming out


On the front forks, you can change to a heavier fork oil. I run 30 wt. fork oil in my '94 FXDWG. On the rear, tighten the shocks up by adjusting the ring at the bottom of the spring. Turning the ring increases or decreases the preload on the spings depending on which way you turn the ring.

Good Luck

How do i drain the fork oil on my 2005 dyna fxd


There should be a drain plug on the trailing side of the slider. Some have cross point screwdriver heads on the plug others have allen or hex head plugs. Remove the plug and work the forks up and down. If all fails, you can remove the entire tube and turn it upside down.

Placed new tires on 1982 goldwing but forks will not fit axle properly. the axle is inside of outside end of the right fork


There are two possibel reasons for this:
1. the most likely is that you installed the axle the wrong way around - try to fit it form the oppososite side. See if it fits the fork better.
2. second possibility is that one or both wheel bearings have moved in their housings a little when you tightened the axle in the wheel. You should investigate the condition of the wheel bearings before you go any further.
Lastly, it is not uncommon fo rthe axles to be a little way inside the fork ends due to manufacturing tolerances. What should not happen is that their position changes without obvious reason.
