carb slide issues

Postby oldgold82 » Fri Jun 01, 2012 9:54 am



Hi, Ive been having some trouble with my goldwing stumbling at low rpm under load and I think I've got it narrowed down to one or a couple of sticky carb slides. I was wondering if I have to take the carbs off to inspect/clean them or do the carbs have to come off, and if they do have to come off what needs to be done for that? taking the carbs off looks pretty strait forward just unbolt manifolds, undo choke/throttle cables....and? All help appreciated, thanks

Upon further inspection the carbs will have to come off anyway, I have a slide cap screw that is stripped out and a couple more that are close.

to get carbs out..besides what you said..remove the two right carbs caps/springs etc., helps to remove the fuel filter, left side engine guard, and pull and wiggle it's tight but it will slide out the left side 2/4,

Carb caps? Are you referring to the slide caps themselves? If so I might be in some trouble

My approach is different to remove carbs. I split the 4 carbs. 5 screws hold the two halves of the air intake together. You have to disconnect the choke linkage from the right rear carb and the throttle linkage from the left rear carb. Once you do that, you can split them and they come out a lot easier.

DH955, the screws you mention to take the two sides of the air intake apart, are they on the inside or the outside of the intake? I only got a few minutes to look at it again today and I don't see those 5 screws you mention from the outside but there are some on the inside but I'm not sure those are the ones you are talking about. I haven't taken the outer manifolds off yet either so maybe I can see more then. I appreciate the help you guys are giving me.

They are on the outside. #3 Phillips head screws, 2 are in front of left carb an 1 in middle of carbs at bottom. These three are accessible from left side. From right side, choke cable mounting bracket screw and directly below are the 2. Becareful as there is a plastic tube that goes in a passage in the bottom of the intake for fuel to travel thru and a seal between the two halves.
