Absolutely, I plan on documenting start to finish. The 82 stock runs great as it is, I am changing for dependability for long trips. I can go back to stock rather quickly if I want. No cutting or changing of bike is required, the mods I do to Enclosure and such are because I just want to.....The pull throttle cable is the only part on stock bike that must be cut for conversion.

The Yellow is 82, picture from this summer Arkansas trip waiting out rain.

This is my wife's 82GL1100 mounting my Manifold and 34-3 VW carb. $30 worth of PVC, $12 air filter, $89 VW34-3 carb.....and the only thing cut on the GL1100 is the little end on the Pull Throttle Cable.

Very good demonstration, I don't perceive any loss of performance compared to the OEM carbs...

maybe at full throttle in 5th gear?

I can skat to 90 with a ton of power,,,,,but after that the jump is gone, will keep getting faster but it is gradual.,,top end speed over 90 is the trade-off, but that is a place I do not care to travel.

You're right DKL, that Solex automatic electric choke is beautiful. I miss it in using my Weber. You don't have to touch a thing with that Solex once set up.
If yours works anything like mine did when I ran it (the Brosol H-30/31 variant), it should fire right up down into single-digit temperatures with no problems.
If I wasn't so heavy-handed and now lazy with my cold weather riding, I'd still be running that Brosol. It's better suited for my climate if riding all year.

I like the fact that you've stuck with the whole idea more than anything. You've made it work for yourself. PVC (or is it CPVC) and a Solex do work. You've shown that it lasts as well.
Good Job!

On the 82 GL1100 I used 1" Sch 40 PVC pipe and Fittings. I no longer use Flex PVC, it worked well but had to be supported or it would sag some in the middle.

I use 4 PVC Socket Bushings 1 x 1 1/4 to go inside the stock rubber manifold ells. I also use the 1" side outlet cross in the middle, and a 1" socket floor flange to mount the 34-3 carb and Four 1" 45 degree ells.

Here are some random pictures of my build, and the Jig I use to build my manifolds. I get the correct amount of drop for the runners by twisting the 45 degree ells until they touch the Jig.

Schedule 40 PVC: 3 each 1" PVC Sling Tee, 4 each 1" Street Elbow, 2FT 1" PVC Pipe, 1 each 1" PVC Floor Flange Nibco Sch 80
