Re: Easy Idle mixture screw mod.

Aaah! So others see a need to adjust the idle/air screws! I notice the carbs have two each ...what is the other for? Also, ever since I increased the idle speed screw too much and had to lower it again, my "off throttle" response is slow. To be more specific, when I rev the engine up now, it is slow...

Adjusting idle air misture

I have searched and cannot find help. I noticed two "flag" screws on each carb, are these load or/and air misture? IF so, how would one adjust with engine at operating temps?

Re: How to adjust your valve clearances

"Anytime you have adjusted the valves, it is a good idea to resynchronize the carburetors, as the sensitive carburetor sync adjustments can be altered by minute timing differences in the intake valves caused by valve gap adjustment". OK! My next question is; how do I resyncronize the carbs? I have a...

Setting the valve lash

I have an 82 GL 1100 Gold Wing and I want to know if the valves have a maintenance schedule? Do the valves need adjustment and if so what are the clearances?
