Well, as my retired mechanic father inlaw says' "who cares! just ride it!" He was a farm kid in the 30s and 40s and rode Harleys because they were cheaper than cars! Imagine...a used working Harley being cheaper than a junker car... :cheeky1:

I have a 79 GL1000 and I have just finished a carb overhaul.

Thanks everyone for the help.

I had to reset one float 1 mm or so and all of the rest were ok. All new orings. My plastic buttons on the carb cv tops are all cracked but have rtv smeared over them and are probably sealed.

But we noticed this minor surging today, so we wonder that the engine behaves so close to normal if it should just be left alone. It has a really strong mix of winter fuel stabilizer (4x normal mix) and we don't know if this could be affecting the engine. Really though, the surge is barely noticeable... Ideas anyone? Thank you, Jim :waving:

Thanks Vic and Marco, I didn't say that I haven't synced (duh) the carbs yet...or before the sync set the valve clearances... Could this be part of the problem?
