    Hi, I have a gl 1100 from 81 that has been sitting for over 5 years. I cleaned the carbs and now she is running good.

    Hi, I've had my 1980 GL1100 for about two years and I heard about single carb conversion kits. I found a couple for a reasonable price on Etsy.

    1981 Goldwing 1100 that I’ve been trying to fix up. This is its current state. It won’t idle properly and eventually the engine kills itself at idle unless I adjust it to be above 1k. It pops like crazy and even shot a fireball at one point (the really loud pop on video). Please help me figure...

    I have a 1981 Honda GL1100 that I recently bought to hopefully get running good. Initially the bike had dirty carbs and couldn't idle below 2500rpms without choke because the pilot jets where clogged. Otherwise the bike was rideable and I even drove it back home over 130 miles! Now to the...

    Been working on this project off/on for a few months and finally got her to turn over after replacing the starter and doing a carb rebuild. While attempting to sync the carbs I get this reading on 1 and 3 that stikes me odd. Right exhaust runs cool air and about half the pressure judging by...
