I'm trying to sort out the carbs on my friend's GL1000 1976. #2 wasn't giving any fuel/air mixture at idle and the idle mixture screw had no effect at all. The other carbs are getting adequate air fuel mixture to the cylinders as measured with an infared thermometer at the exhaust head pipes. Some one had been into these carbs as each bowl was held on with three different kinds of screws. I removed the carb set and investigated #2 to find that the low speed jet, under the rubber plug, could not be removed, it just turned with a small screwdriver. The hole for the jet seems 'grainy' or 'crumbly' as in deterorating.
I used WD-40 and air pressure to blow through the low speed circuit. I'm hesitating about reinstalling the set without your advise.
What do you think about the single carb conversions?

single carb

Thanks for the reply. I've been rebuilding carbs for some 40 years and have seen carbs in all kinds of conditions but nothing like whats happening to them with current alcohol enriched gas.
