What year is my GL1100

Postby moffat » Sat Jun 16, 2012 4:41 am



My bike is running richish and as first step I want to check the carburettor pilot jet settings but reading the Honda manual it is apparent that the Initial pilot jet setting are:-
1982 models 3 turns out
1980-81 models 1 and 1/4 turns out
The frame number is 1HFSCO212CA224994
The engine number is SC02E226260 and I suspect it is earlier than 1982??
The number on carb 4 is VB 49BWTK.
Assistance appreciated as I don't want to get it wrong

According to http://www.xtremedecals.com/hondamodels/h1100/wing.html it's an '82 engine.

Here's a better list on another forum: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/forum1/82179.html
