Question about 1983 Honda GL 1100 Innerstate Gold Wing
Check for air leaks. Clean the carbs paying attention to the idle circuit. Get your mercury gauge out and resink the carbs. If the idle is set too high (especially if carbs out of sink or dirty) you will get irratic idling. If the idle is set to low it will just quit. To adjust the bike properly make sure you have a tank of no ethanol fuel . No ethanol fuel will raise the idle. Ethanol fuel will lower the idle, cause some variation, and often times will cause knocking/pinging upon acceleration . Remember your bike was designed to run on 94 octane no ethanol. I guess we just have to be thankful they run at all on the fuel they sell nowadays.
