I have 2 81 GL 1100's one I making a new intake manifole for, the other I think of using randakk's manifolds for a dual weber IDF 40 set up.

Here are links to two sites where you will find more info about doing this

I would never castrate one of my bikes like that.

For some people a loss of performance in certain area's is not an issue.For me any loss of performance is a huge issue. Going to a single carb results in sacrafices either in low or high rpm performance. Physics will not allow a single carb setup to perform across the wide rpm range of a bike.

Just curious but why do you want to do this?

Check your other thread about the felts. My exhaust is veryrare. I looked for one for over 2 years before I found it. I got it from a guy that wanted something a bit quieter. I swapped him straight up for a set of Jardenes. It was just dumb luck.

Rob as you can see there are many opinions about single carbs the two links I posted are only guide where you can find information as wisker_fish states there are pros and cons with regards to performance. I did the research before making my decision on what to do with my bikes. I have an 82 Aspencade that will retain Honda carbs using Randakk's master rebuild kit.For me the choice was simple as one 81 will become a custom bobber the other daily commuter with single carb for me I am willing to give up a little to ease the amount of maintenance and upkeep on the carbs. And I would agree with wisker_fisk get Randakk's video on carbs it will help you greatly and check the tech section on his web site a lot of info there to.
