To check, bike or carbs level, dry the carbs off, remove the slides and caps, dry the venturi throats off, and turn the gas on. Watch for leaks. To narrow down the leak faster, cut an...

Re: Exhaust spitting oil from r/h exhaust

130 is not good IMHO..it's OK..but manual says below 140... time for new rings or valve job/reset???..double check your valve settings with a stone cold engine over night is best. 170 perfect 160-170 excellent 150-160 great 140-150..good below 140 maintenance needed BUT these bikes will run at 100.....

Re: Fuel line width

The vacuum line to the petcock is a small one probably the 3.2 MM. I thought all the vacuum lines under the carbs were the same size 4.2mm??? and the largeone the gas line to and from the filter.

Thermostat probably not open running only a few minutes..If no water in the oil. I'd put the cap back on fill the reservoir with some anti-freeze and start her up..get her up to operating temperature..and listen and watch. Was the engine cover hit or just the guard? Maybe fix/replace the temp gauge ...

Re: NO torque on a camshaft holder nut

Yep all metric on Honda..you could pull another one to check it out but specs above seem correct. Another option is to fill the hole with aluminum repair rods(there is a thread over at NGW about this product.) , drill out and retap to original size.

Re: NO torque on a camshaft holder nut

Probably be Ok but I'd drill it out a bit and re-tap with next size up and not worry about it. I think there is plenty of meat there to drill a bit larger.

Re: additional luggage rack on hitch / gl 1100dx 1981

I think the guy took off the U shaped connector on the bag's bracket and installed his rack..so you'd have to make you rack mounting tubes fit the bag bracket's tubes(inside or outside??) and add a set screw to hold them in place. After that make you rack anyway way you want..that one kind of looks ...

Re: idle issues

You said you replaced the jets with new ones..aftermarket jets are known to be sized incorrectly..could be your issue..otherwise..as said..cable binding due to routing or gummed up inside, vacuum leaks, dirty/binding slide issues will cause rpm's to remain high.
