High Performance Goldwing GL1000 Single Weber DFT

High Performance Goldwing GL1000 Weber DFT32 / Motorcraft 740 Single Carburetor Conversion.

Too bad the valve springs of a stock engine can't keep up with the bottom end of a stock engine.

This DFT32/M740 carburetor is as calibrated from Tom Langdon.

I start off with a relatively cold engine and the un-choked idling rpm is high as a result. Once the induction becomes fully heated, the idle drops to 1050 rpm as seen at the end of the video.

...more vids to come.

I'm flattered.
...it's a CB-something setup to look like a GL?
Amazing.

No, just a bone stock '77 engine with a broken inner valve spring and my goodies on it externally.

Thanks for the compliments fellas. I do appreciate it. Nice to see some comparing their modified engines to my stock engine.

Yep, it revs fine.
I've a lot of adjustability at the throttle. How it is set now keeps me out of the secondary most of the time.

I'm going to make more videos.
What you want to see?

It does sound good at high rpm, don't it...
Them Rinehart's sound and look real good.

In any event, the bike is reliable with that Stovebolt carburetor. I bolted it on and ran it. Then I heated it. Now were watching it.

what i meant by revving hard was, it seems to be revving HIGH at a given speed on the highway.
must be thirsty.
a few shots of the set up itself would be ok.
i don't doubt its reliability, it's a Honda.

Oh, yes. It does rev high.
It revs harder and higher with a DCD on it.
At the top of 4th gear, the Brosol struggles to climb past 8k.

i dont think you are getting what i mean re revs. it looks to be around 5,000 at 65 mph. that is high. has the gearing been changed somehow ? do you make it into fifth gear ?
regardless, ( and i don't mean to upset anyone ) i would be reluctant to call it high performance. because it may seem fast , but it isn't.

I'm not certain I know what you wondering.
I've a '77 engine in a '78 frame with a 16" Lester wheel.
What gearing are you refering to?

I think you're saying that there is not enough road speed compared to the rpm for your liking to call it high performance, right?

ahh, the 16 inch wheel would explain the higher revs.
not enough speed compared to rpm. correct.
ever ridden a fast, powerful bike ? an old wing is no slouch, but could not be ever called high performance. in my opinion.

That's probably true.
This is no racebike.
It's not bad at holding it's own to other 'Wings though.
...some other bikes as well.
