They appear like the ones on my 76 GL1000. What are the numbers on the flanges. It seems that each year has it's own number and each year, of production, has requirements for that specific carb. Carbs of different numbers, should not be mixed into the same rack of carbs. Someone more knowledgeable than I should be along shortly.

They're definitely Goldwing just pre 1980.

definatly carbs off a 1000

there are numbers on the carbs that indicate the year. check our randakk's site to get the reference numbers. each year 75 throu 79 had a different set of carbs, these are also matched to a different set of cams for that year.

the 76 carbs were probably the best for pure performance, but their optimal performance is on a '76 engine... 79 was probably the worst.

while you could mount those on an 1100 engine, there would be no advantage to doing it, and prbably some headaches you haven't yet had

Clean the top area next to the plenum then look for the code in the red circles. Check all 4 to make sure they are the same. These are definetly 1000 carbs. Then go to Randakks to find out what year they go to.

Thanks for the tip Wiskerfish, codes are 3 of 758A (1976) and 1 of 769A (1978), not much use to me so I Think I will sell them on to help offset the cost of my front brake rebuild.

Thanks again Shimmy. :cool:
