also. drilled out the idle mix screw holes and found every screw at a different setting.

1=1/4 turn out

2=2.1/4 turns out

3=0 turns out(tight)

4=1 turn out.

makes you wonder. but the inside of the carbs looks clean

I've loved reading this string. Almost makes me, the biggest motard here, feel like I could do the same.

you could, just take lots of pics. helps with the reassembly especially if you get interupted alot(such as work, girlfriends, fires on the freeway two streets over with embers landing on your shake roof)(that happened tonight) got a bad pic of the flames just popping over the roof of the apartments two street over. started when someone in a motorhome drove down the freeway with a tire off the rim, and the sparks from that started a stretch of the vegetation on 17/880n on fire.

Suggestion.. Take that front air deflector off and paint it flat (or gloss) black.. that's how they came from the factory..

I admire your work on this bike.. My 86 Aspy looks just as clean and bright.. These old 1200's are (in my eyes) the most beautifully designed and well built of the GoldWings.

I am impressed!!! :cooler:

I'm shocked, is that a rusty clamp on the engine guard?

:)thanks for the support guys, I'm not done yet. I was just getting antsy not knowing how the motor would run, so I hung the fairing on with one bolt and connected the wires so the gauges would work. started right up, 1st and second work, so thats good news. next is rebuilding the calipers and getting the brakes to work.



also have some plastic repair to do to the trunk, and of course remove more rust and corrosion.

I will keep posting pics 'till it's done, or you guys get tired of it.:action:
