Is it not even getting into the float bowl? If not, you may have a stuck float needle.

Hello,

The throttle cables are kinda tough the first time around. The way I did it was to slide the entire unit to the left side (as seen when sitting on bike) after getting the vacuum hose, fuel line, choke, and intake pipes disconnected. It will probably take some time as it is a tight fit, but you will figure it out. Putting it back together was tougher in my opinion.

However, there may be others on the list who have better methods than this. I had to do this 5 times until I got my carbs figured out.

Be careful not to bend anything when you are moving the entire unit to the left. Whatever you do do not force it over.

The throttle cables are easier to remove if you loosen up the throttle cable locknut and turn the adjusting barrel all the way in at the hand throttle. This provides the necessary slack for ease of cable removal at the carburetor assembly. Also remove the tops of the carbs and the springs and pistonsin the carbs that feed the #1and #3 cylinders. When I tore into my carbs I found a little filter screen under the float needle seats on each carb. The one that isn't getting fuel could be plugged. On my 82 GL1100 the floats are set at 15.5mm. This is what the Clymer book says for the 82 gl1100. The carb end of the throttle cables have a nut on them that you have to remove to get the cables off of the throttle spool. They are a real pain I think a 10mm wrench is the correct size to back off the nuts. If you have a shop that sells o-rings get 4 viton o-rings they are about 40x2.5 mm the part number here in the states is A5568-129 they were only about $3.75 for all four. Hope this will help.
