I'm not too proud to say I have repaired diaphragms with a coating of red RTV over the bad area. . Make sure you let them sit outside of the carbs for 24 hours so the RTV is completely cired. Worked for years.

Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.

If you look you'll find aftermarket diaphragms available. You keep the original slide.

I found this information in my notes. You might check out these web sites and see if you want to try these for a replacement.

I bought a pair from Sabercycle for my 1500 and they were to thick and didn't work right, bought the one's from Honda OEM and have never had another problem. Expensive lesson and a lot of extra work.

I have been wondering about those from Saber. I wouldn't take the chance because of their reputation but good to hear from someone with direct experience. Thanks.

i ordered the diaphragms from JBM. For 40 bucks for 2 it is worth a try. Will post an update later.

20 plus years on stock Honda parts why put cheap junk on it now. Mother Honda is more expensive but it fits and lasts.

The only thing cheap about a Gold Wing is the owner (in many cases).

That be me. $200 or $40? Which way shall I go? Took the gamble.



I purchased and installed the diaphragm replacements from JBM Industries and they look to be a quality product and work as advertised. If they happen to fail later I will report back.
