I got mine from Saber before I read all the negative posts about them. They arrived and fit perfect. I guess I just got lucky!

It's when what you get from them doesn't fit or work is when you will have a problem getting any satisfaction.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Are you guys really telling me that the 1500/6 only has 2 carburetors?

Well $#!T! That's why I've avoided them for the whole part of my life that they've been around!

4 carbs with continual problems was enough for me to go SCC, 6 would have driven me crazy.

Really???????

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."

Could get an 1800. It doesn't have any carbs.

The 1800 is fuel injected so it does not have carbs, but it is not as smooth at lower parking lot speeds or such manuvers. That's why my 1500 gets riden more than the 1800. Of course the 1500 is also a better ride. The 1800 is a crotch rocket engine in a Winnabago!!
