I just got two GL1100's a 81 interstate and a 82 aspencade. I couldn't resisit$2400 for both the 82 has been sitting since 95 so I know my work is cut out for me on this one. But it is complete and it will be a complete teardown project. But the 81 runs but has carb issues. The PO said he took carbs apart and cleaned them I have no idea what he did or how, if he mixed up the CV slides am I dead in the water or is there a way to tell which carb they belong in or is this something that doesn't matter?:(

I think it does matter as all rebuil manuals tell you to mix them., i believe they wear differently and may iinturn give less than perfect preformance but not sure if you could tell the diffrence.

I wonder how many of us have wings where the PO changed the location of teh slides and we try our best to keep them in thier respective locations.

I hope a guru will know the answer because now I am curious..

I think that is a great question.

CV slides stay with the carb they came out of, never mix them. Since you've got an 82 Aspy that's the one I'd concetrate on. It's carbs are easier to rebuild as all the jets on them are removable whereas on the 80-81's there's one jet that is pressed in and under normal conditions isn't removed during a rebuild.

Here's a good site to help you on getting older Wings up and runnig the right way.
Honda GL1000 Restoration Specialist - Randakk's Cycle Shakk

He covers just about everything you need to do on the 1000's and 1100's. Also there is a lot of good useful information in this site's Goldwing tips section.

Thanks bagman I guess for the 81 i'll just go with Randalls dual weber setup and turn this one into a custom wing as I already have running 81 interstate this one was bought for the parts missing on my first wing. I know the PO didn't touch the carbs on the aspy so I'll strip them donw ultrasonic clean and rebuild them. Already have mini bins to keep parts seperated together.

That dual Weber setup can get into some big bucks. Randall is only producing and selling the manifolds, so you'll still need to buy the carbs and correct linkage. When you finish it I'd sure like to see and hear it run.

Are you just north of Gastonia?

Bagmaster I'm not sure how far Jonesville is from Charlotte but it sounds like a good reason for a bike ride to me when it's done. And I do have one advantage I have access to a mill, lathe and welding equipment I do a lot of fabrication at work so this shouldn't be to bad to do. I have already seen the prices for the Webers but I don't have a wife to empty my pockets so I have disposable money.:cheeky1:I have a girl to clean my house and pipes when she's done I take her home.

I got hold of the PO turns out he just pulled carbs and cleaned float bowls and sprayed everything with cleaner which means I'm in good shape he didn't mix the slides. I disassembled them last night and found all 4 air cutoffs where shot, I'll take them to work and ultrasonic clean them and rebuild.

There are 2 different Weber single carb setups for sale on Ebay right now. 1 of them has a real nice custom manifold with water cooling for it.

I agree with Wayne, get Randalls carb re-build kits. It comes with new air cutoff valves.

Thxs bagmaster I'm going to watch the manifolds on ebay but I'm sure they will go higher than what I want to pay. This is OK by me I have a new weber for this already plus about half of the parts made already for the new intake manifold. That's what nice about having mill, lathe, and welding access making mine out of aluminum that I can polish or powder coat and have it like Burger King (MY WAY):cheeky1:

As for the set of carbs I wasn't sure about,I was going to use Randakk's master kit while apart may polish float bowls and slide covers. Then powder coat bodies, set them up and test run on a bike then putup for sale to get some cash back for the purchase of Randakk's dual webermanifolds for theinterstate to standard conversion.
