My '81 gl 1100 has '79 carbs on it. Would this hesitation be from the fact the vacum advance isn't hooked up? Or could it be a carb adjustment.

Yes

Please decribe the problem with a little more detail.

General midrange hesitation.

Almost a stall when rolling on the throttle at middle engine speeds.

Etc.

Yes, you need to hook up the vacuum advance. It'll run a lot better too. I don't have a vacuum port on my single carb either, and I wound up using one of the screw ports in the manifold elbow (where you hook up the sync gauges).

Hi Jerry. Raymond & Tony are both right. You need the vacuum, lucky it's easy enough to sort out. I still think a used set of good GL1100 carbs is a better bet, but with the vacuum hooked up you should get it running well enough.
