Bike sat at a shop for a year and clogged the gas tank and carbs. Shop mech could not get the carbs clean or at least not to where the bike would run smooth. Will a set of 91 carbs fit on the 89? Thinking I need to replace them rather tan mess with it. Any help? What is best? Here is what was done so far: honda mech cleaned carbs twice (got worse rather than better), cleaned gas tank, used sea foam on 1/2 tank (no luck) now bike won't even start.

I posted my 1st thread in the wrong forum I think, under trikes &trailers. Will "91 carbs fit on an '89? Had Honda mech work on the carbs twice and it only got worse. Now bike won't even start. Think I need to replace them as an overhaul kit might be useless. Anyone know which is best? Bike sat in a shop for a year. That's how these problems came about.

My 88 sat for 7 years. Was able to clean the carbs, but needed new fuel pump as the old one was messed up and rusty. How is your fuel pump/filter? The jetting was changed in 90 from the 88/89 set up. My 88 runs like a champ.

The carbs will fit. There may be some difference in some of the electrical sensors and you can probably change the old ones over. There are a lot of older threads with more specific info about putting later carbs in older GL1500's, you should use the search to find them.
