I would say that carburetor should be taken from same size car engine but if Wing has 6K red line and car engine has 4K that probably means car engine has to be 50% bigger.

76, 83, 84I,84A, 86 SEi Wings are gone, now 75, 84A
I have to stop buying dead old Wings...

ignition switch for $8, solenoid for $10, fuel pump for $30 still work fine!

As long as the cfm is adequate is a 2 bbl necessary?
NO.

The Solex that started the thread is a 1bbl.

The Weber 32/36 DGV that I'm using now is a 2bbl, but I think it's too big for my bike and the throttle progression has the secondary kicking in too soon on the twist.

The Weber 28/36 DCD has a smaller primary, yet maintains the larger secondary.I think it would be a better carburetor for my bike. Throttle progression has a faster transition from primary to secondary (10% transition vs 22%) and happens later in the progression >>> 1st 4/5 = primary --- last 5th = secondary.
I would stay on the primary for most of my riding with the DCD. The secondary would comeon laterin the throttle twist.

Fair enough . Actually I am moving on to two carb Goldwings . I can / do understand the want of a simpler system . If I ever get back to building a 1000 I really may try tinkering . But that wont be an everyday bike .

Makes sense.

But, for example, a Weber with a given bore size can be choked up or down, rejetted and retunedto accomodate a particular application.

One carburetor could accomodate a 4, 6 or 8 cylinder given the proper set-up.

I understand...

Just doing my part...

Many older 'Wings have seen better days. When it came time for me to resurrect my current 'Wings hibernation, I had options for the carbs. I've never been a purist with the aim of factory restoring anything. A simple carb overhaul for it is not as simple as, say, my cb 350, 900, or my XL. Different animals them GL carbs are. So, weighing my options on how to attack the carburetor issue, I opted for a simpler, more cost effective route. My Weber set-up rebuilt/complete/installed cost much less than the best available GL carburetor kit out there, and performs exceptionally well. I'm happy.

A lot of fellas here have only one bike, some none. But for those that can't deal with the older GL carbs for whatever reason, I'm passing on whateverinfo I can. To some, their GL is an everyday bike.Making it worry-free (be it 4 carbs or 1) is stand-up no matter what the approach in my book.

Carburetion is fun in my house.
My 17 year old daughter rebuilt my 32/36, not because Iwanted her to do it, but because she wanted to show her 18 year old sister how to do it.It's only complicated without the proper information.


Be different, run two YFs from a 1st gen Camaro. Havn't seen that yet.
