I have a 1981 Goldwing GL1100. I have ordered two different carb rebuild kits and both have jets that are smaller than the ones in my carbs. How can I tell for sure which carbs are on my bike? (which year, etc...) I have the carbs torn apart and I am scambling to find rebuild kits to get them back together, before I forget where all the parts go!



Thanks

Your best bet for jets is randakks or mother Honda. after market ones do not work very well. Look for any ident number on a carb & contact one of the 2 sources I have listed!

Randakk doesn't sell any jets, either single or with his carb kits.

Whats wrong with the old jets. I doubt fuel has eroded them too much if any. I would clean and inspect them and keep them.

Where did you get your rebuild kit from. If from a source like ebay, I would read the manuals carefully for size specifications.

as said earlier shool randall at randakks an email. He can help even if he didt sell you the set.

Thank you for all your help! The carb ID is VB48AASK, so at least I know they are 81 carbs. I suspect the kits were for the GL1000.

There does not appear to be anything wrong with the jets, so I will just clean them. It is getting warm early this year, so I am anxious to get the carbs rebuilt and back on the bike!

Thanks again,

OddWing

if your jets are clogged. Let them sit in seafoam or carb cleaner. Work at the clog with a soft bristle tooth brush. No matter how tempted you are , do not run a pin in the center to clear the clog.
