I have been learning all about gl carbs and have decided to take mine off the bike and work on the ones that matter. So does it matter which side you pull them out from? Sitting on the bike left or right side? As I will have to remove the rest of my lower fairing and the crash bars so I only want to do one side if I can.

Can you take them out with the intakes attached?

I've got everything dettached, choke, throttle cables, air cleaner and the intakes loosened from the head side not the carb side.

I have been having this awful whistling or horn sound when I start my bike up and I think I may have found the problem it seems I maybe missing the idler screw from the #3 carb..I felt around under there and I don't feel anyting sticking out or even in the tube. But the bike started and idled just fine I even got the carbs synched so maybe it's broken off in there..but that's why I have decided to pull them.

I just got my rust converter, althogu it came with a cut in the bottle and leaked out some..We'll see how the rust converter people respond when I call them!

Is it me or am I having a run of bad luck???

the most come out on the left side, you gotta remove the air chambers on 1 & 3 carbs, the crash bars can stay on for this and the fairing too. it is a tight fit but if you wiggle it just right the slide right out

I think it's just you having the bad luck sorry to say.

But look at it this way, better to have this stuff come up now than somewhere out in the boonies with no cell service.

All 4 carbs come out together with the intakes attached but you have to remove the 2 right slider covers (right as sitting on the bike)

I find it easier to remove the 1100 carbs if I take the intake runners and the carb tops off the right side first. First take the intake runners off the right side carbs, then unbolt the left side runners from the head. With that done you can move the carbs a bitright to get the carb tops on the right side clear of the frame enough to remove the carb tops, pistons and spring. I don't like to leave the pistons in because it's easy to nick them and then you have more problems. So carefully lift them out of the right side carbs along with the springs. I usually mark the carb top and pistons with a marking pen so I can be sure to put them back in the same holes. Don't forget to remove the fuel line and the vacuum hose from #3 carb. At this point they can be wriggled out, it take some wiggling around but they will come out.

Ok, I got them out thanks for the advise. I actually only have to take off one of the air chamber tops and it wiggled right out air intakes and all.

What I found was not good..the bowls were all covered on the bottoms with rust a gummy red glue but more than just old gas. The biggy were the intake screens on the bowls they were packed tight with rust. NO wonder the bike won't run it was staved for gas. It all cleaned up now and just a matter of finding some air chamber diaphragms. Mine are all gummy and thin.

By the way The Rust Store people said no problem we'll send you out another bottle today.

if you are looking for the air cut off valves, try www.siriuscoinc.com I got the cutoffs for my gl500 (same series carb, different application) through them for a reasonable price.

Yeah, guys rub it in..my bike is more pieces everyday. I keep taking things off and nothing seems to be going back on. I took some pics of the carb bowls what a mess! And the stuff around the final filter basket was amazing I actually scooped it out.
But I have nothing left to remove. Now It just rebuilding it all and putting it back together.
