I have a 1978 GL1000 engine. Has anyone ever fabricated a manifold to run this engine using a Honda automobile carburator?

I have one on my gl1100 80. Im not sure if they made one for the gl1000. My setup came from a company down in Florida called Daytona Parts. Google them and give them a call. They are really helpful.

Funny you should ask. I am in the middle of a carb conversion on my '81 GL1100I. I made the manifold and it bolted up last night. I am using a solex carb off a VW. there are a few pictures in this link
good luck with the conversion..... Stan

I have to ask, but WHY? The standard carbs are fairly simple and easy to maintain, why go to all this effort to stick a single carb on? Plus all the extra effort to then get it to fuel correctly? Just interested in knowing what is motivating you to do this?
