my Weber now works 100 percent perfectly
1982 gl1100 Aspencade. 2bbl Weber. stock fuel pump and filter. K&N filter Assy. CC Products tuned and heated intake, stock runners. Vance and Hines Rumblers. 1975 cams. Nology multiplying wires.
PO, and I both found unacceptable overfueling, fouling, at low speeds.
I turned the idle jet in 1/4 turn at a time and it continually got better. finally it bottomed out... and the bike runs like a new car. one push starting, perfectly flat idle, 40 MPG + under 65mph. The only issue I have is I think its still a bit rich in the secondary, as mileage over 70 is poor, 25 ish. the secondary with just me on it begins to open about 75 mph, and with the wife on, about 70.
I am sure I have lost some 70 MPH and up torque, compared to my stock gl1100s, BUT...
From stop light to stop light, this thing is a monster. I could break the rear tire loose on acceleration! Now I have new rubber I haven't tried it again, but wow.
in 1st gear, at 3000 RPM, when that secondary opens this thing is gone. And you should hear it! If anyone ever doubts the GL1100 being capable of performance, they are wrong. This is the best thing to ever happen to a Goldwing. I got a lifetime ban from NGW for condemning those worthless stock carbs, and I am glad to not know them any more. A 2bbl heated carb solves everything. My only complaint? air noise. while that 2bbl moan is cool it gets old.
