GL1000 Carburetors / Interchangable?

Post by drvirago777 » Sat May 16, 2015 1:48 pm



Are all the GL1000 Carburetors Interchangable?
Or are they differences in the eariler and later models?
I have Rebuilt a set of 1976 GL1000 Carburetiors and a Customers wants to
know if they will Operate correctly on his 1979 GL1000.
I need to know this Info for Future Reference too.

Will they operate, yes, but......
Are they correct, no.
75-77 carbs are 32mm bore, 78-79 are 31mm bore with different jetting. The earlier carbs could give a boost, but to get that it really needs the earlier cams and ignition timing too. You may find without doing that, that the jetting is out.
Depending on the way the bike is ridden, the owner may not notice any problems.
Carb numbers:
1975 - 755A and 755B (Europe)
1976 - 758A
76 LTD - 763A
1977 - 764A
----------------
1978 - 769A
1978 - 771A (California)
1979 - 771A
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
