Question about 1989 Honda GL 1500 Gold Wing
I have 4 gl1000's and they all have problem carbs. Tend to flood on start, carbon up when running, cause difficult starting, home and motorcycle workshop carb rebuilds have the same problem. I know some carbs were replaced with VW cabs off flat fours. Randshack of America is not infavour of this, claiming difficulty with fuel supply in cornering as well as poor fuel consumption.
Is there a dealer reconditioning system for these carbs?
Or a carb specialist in the uk who is competent with these carbs?
Now that fuel injection is fitted to all(?) bikes these days is there a fuel injection conversion kit for the early carburetors?
Is the Gl1200 carb in anu way compatilble with specialist workhop input?
Well i will tell you that im a motorcycle tech and it sure sounds like the float level is too high
