I just changed the temp gage sending unit on my 82 GL1100I I had to take the carburetor intakes loose to get to it I put new O rings on it all went fairly well until I started the motor and there's a popping sound not like a back fire coming from the general area of the carburetors it's I had the chock about half way out you could feel it when you held the handle bars anybody ever have this happen?
Thanks Tater

Thanks for the input I did check around the intake tubes with some carb cleaner as soon as I spread each one around the clamp the RPMs came up so I guess I have found the problem . Next those rubbers are so old and stiff is there something I can put on them to help them seal?
Thanks for your help tater

If you haven't already got one, get yourself a heat gun -- Harbor Freight has them reasonably priced. It made the rubber on the intakes pliable in less than 30 seconds. You might even be able to use your wife's hairdryer, but it would take longer.

Hope this helps.
