Carb O-ring ID

Postby rrunner68 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:19 pm



Hey folks, was rebuilding the carbs for a 82 GL 1100, and this thing fell out. Can someone please identify it and tell me where it goes? Thanks.

Hm. I haven't got my 1100 here to look at to be sure, but it looks familiar - I seem to remember it as part of a cover of a cable - choke or throttle, perhaps?

Looks like a piece of the rubber boot that goes over the shaft of the accelerator pump to me....
    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape!

Sounds to be right. I had just removed that as well as the float bowl cover. Thanks.
