Hello goldwing lovers

I have been reading this forum for a while and it has been very helpfull to me as I am restoring an Gl 1000 LTD (1976)

Now that everything is in place I have a problem that I seem unable to resolve:

Tha bike starts perfectly but missfires at low rpm.

When this happens the engine goes crazy, it goes up to 5000 rpm by itself.

When turning the "idle screw" down it suddenly stops.

When I start it again it goes up high revs again but comes down by itself to aprox 1000 rpm until it missfires and goes crazy again.

I don' t know what to do or where to search for the problem.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks for any help

Regards from a sunny Spain

Hi and thanks for the quick answer.

You are right i forgot to tell what I have done:

New timing belts, valves done, carburators cleaned.

I have to check if the timing is right, but I believe it is. Do I need to remove the radiator to check??

Havingsaid that i must add that i might have reversed the cables at the points (should not affect or??)

I have started the engine without the airfilter box and obviuosly without the filter itself.

Thanks to all of you.

I have done the work following the instructions (not all but many) and found several small problems :

- Two cracked manifolds

- Several damaged Orings

- A butterfly installed upside down

- A butterfly axle damaged

- And a few air intakes here and there.



After solving theese the bike is much much better but still revs high at start (3500) for a few seconds (15-20) and then goes down to normal idle.

So I am still working on it.

But thank you for you help.

I am really grateful.

I am attaching a pic of the bike almost finished, hope you enjoy it

Regards

Thomas
