Question about 1976 Honda GL 1000 (K1)
I have a 1976 goldwing with some major problems.when it is cold it will run on all 4 cyls,as it warms up it starts to break down big time.it has over 100000 miles yes miles on it.it has good compression in all 4,carbs have been cleaned,plugs have been replaced,has a nice blue spark,valves have been checked .004 on all,it back fires,misses,sometimes it works good.but not for long.please help me get riding this bike without worrying about getting back home.
Im not certain as i dont have a maintanance manual for that bike, but intake valve clearance should be approx .004 and exhaust valves should be appxox .008 also you may consider taking the coils to a shop and have them tested. coils after warming up will begin to fail once they start to go bad. spark will be great when the bike is cold, but once it warms up, spark begins to fade and hit and miss.. this may be the problem. hope this helps.
