Looking for some advice on an 83 1100 engine. I just took the " Wing " for a wonderful first ride!!!. I noticed that the CV slide on 1 of the carbs are hanging up!! I did a syncronization on her awhile back and I'm wondering if it was out of sync could it make it seem like a neddle jet or slide is hanging up?. If around 4000 rpm and in 5th gear with the throttle backed down it's smooth. Mid range under a load it feels like only 3 carbs are picking up and 1 is lagging until you give it full throttle and then you can hear the other carb kick in and it's a pretty sound from there on out???. I just filled the tank with 93 high test and seafoam. Made a few passes on the Interstate and still no change. Just looking for an avenue to go on. Should I try to sync to see where Im at?, pull the carbs and rebuild?. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance. Cheers Allan

Out of synch can make it stutter at idle and initial takeoff until you get the revs up. Once you are on the move with the revs up you won't really know it's out of synch.

So do you recommend to re-sync to see if I had 1 slide out when I tightened up the nut?

Just another question!!, I know that we sync @ operating temp and just above idle. but is it possible to check the neddles or slides@ higher RPM and see if they rise at the same time??. Just asking.

Yes you can ive synched both my wings with the revs higher it seems to me to sync better as i did it at about 900 or 950 idle and they didnt seem right to me . My 83 would seem to bog down it i was in fourth or fifth and want to over take a slower vehicle now it twist and hold on .

hi im gary and i suffer from MBS [multiply bike syndrome ] once you have one bike you need more than one and i need help getting more

What Andy was trying to get across is synch is not the problem at the speed you are having the problem. I think by the sound of it you have a low speed jet plugged up.
You are not synching the slides when you synch the carbs, you are synching the throttle butterflies. You do not do it at above idle, you do it at idle speed.

That's what I was after DAVE!!. So the sync only affects the butterflys in the throttle body right?. So how can I correct this problem with the low speed jet?. Do I need to remove the carb gp in order to correct this?.

You will have to remove the carbs to clean them. Luckily you have an 83 which has removable jets. Do not spray carb cleaner into the carb passages with the air cut off diaphragms in place, it will destroy them. Just remove the jets and clean them and blow air or something that won't hurt the ACVs (WD40 maybe) through the passages to be sure they are clear.

Dave I bought the carbs from Aspect 1 and he just told me that the carbs that UI bought off him came off an 80 model engine!!. Does this make a difference on the jets?. Are they still removable on the 80 model?.

No, the jets on the 80 carbs are not normally removable. Probably not too bad plugged though since they did come of a running (but knocking) bike. Probably got turned upside down in shipping and got a particle in a jet.

So they need to still come off right?. Do you recommend to rebuild them if they need to come off?. Or do you think I can get away with just cleaning them out and boiling them to get the crud out?. I guess a lot will depend with what I find on the inside should dictate if the overhaul is warrented Hu?.
