Need tech specs 1976 GL1000

Postby Crazyjim » Mon Aug 02, 2010 8:24 pm



How would I find out the exact specs for the o-ring on my jets for 1976 GL1000 Keihin carburetors…?
I have a local company here in Chico, CA called Valley Rubber and Gasket Co., Inc…
I know that they make o-rings & have all sizes…
So how would I know what to buy w/o taking the carbs out again…? I pulled them out to inspect clean them & found out that 3 of the bowl had stripped screws (& 1 had two stripped screws) & I got a local guy that works on Datsun Z’s & he only charged me $20 to put all four 4mm helicoils in…
So does anyone know where I might get the exact size & dimension for my jets…?
All I know is one is bigger than the other one…
TNX, Jim

If you mean the O rings for the Dowels then there are two sizes 1 is 17mm x 2.5mm and the other is 8mm x 1.9mm

The best information that I can offer on GL1000 Carbs is to visit Randakks Cycles online.
This guy is the carb guru in my opinion. He also sells carb parts and complete kits. 8-)

TY for all your replies... I got the o-rings from http://www.crc2onlinecatalog.com & replaced them but was still having a problem... I rode the bike yesterday & it ran great for no reason... Two days B4 it ran really, really bad... Back firing & bogging down but yesterday I rode about 4 or 5 miles on the freeway & got up to about 85 MPH without any back firing... Not sure why it's running so much better unless it the cooler weather... It has been in the 100s & today it is only going to be 72 so that may have something to do with it...
I was told to check the electronic ignition pick-up coil may have an intermittent in it so I bought so component cooler from Radio Shack but if that is it, I will just have to wait... I have the cover off & have the spray with me but that is yet to be discovered...
And http://www.randakks.com/ has been a wealth of help... TNX, Jim

JIm,
If you log onto an American website dedicated to GL1000 and download the free service manual that is available free of charge - it should answer all you questions both thenhere and now and future. I dowloaded it but as its a large file I copyed it to a CD.
www.gl1000.info

I also use the American website ww.mrcycles.com to see the spare parts manual.
Hope this helps
David
