Proper planning will help expedite service on the gl 1000. Due to the hot coolant in the engine;this motorcycle may require a longer cooling down period than previous honda models,after verifying any customer complaints on the work order,the technician should first accelerate the cool down.
if the motorcycle is in for a tune-up and servie as called for in the maintenance schedule for 6000 mile intervals,the first operations should be to drain the hot engine oil,and remove the valve covers allowing the hot air to escape. use of a cooling fan as used for other models will only help slightly due to the engine design and layout in the frame. while the oil is draining,draw the parts and lubricants from stock and lay out the required tools.
