I'd pull one and measure it..tap sets have gauge teeth match one up probably a 1.00 pitch 4mm? but only a guess.

Thanks I have a 1983 Gl1100 carbs that i'am rebuillding, the book says that 1980-81 jet that is in question is not to be removed (its pressed in) but 82 & 83 are threaded and are servicable don't have a tap so I think that i'll just press the old one back in, this particular passage way goes to the air cutoff valve. just wanted to hear if anyone else dealt with this situation thanks fritz

Hey RBGERSON (or anyone else) I have another question about The GL1100 carb rebuild, in the video where they have the vaccum cup spring and slide up side down showing how the slide should move up & down easily and no tight spots well I'am their every thing is working except the length of the springs are all different and the vaccum assemblies rise up and settle at different highths. is this a problem ???
two slides end up about an 1/8 inch above the cup edge the third one is even with the cup edge and the forth one ends up settleing 1/8 inch below the cup edge and I can't find any specs anywhere !!! Thank you for your time - fr1tz

Sounds like you have 3 VB48C carbs and one VB48A. You should try to source the correct carb for the rack you are rebuilding. I don't know what cyl. carb you need...I do have some bodies lying around. As far as the springs for the slides,they should be all the same length when put next to each other on a bench.

+1 what he said..mismatched carbs..and springs all should be the same in the same carb model..you can/should polish the tubes and slides on the carb caps..no sand paper just scotch pad stuff or crocus cloth. I wrap it around a dowel and pull it in and out of the tube to polish and then wrap around the slide to clean and polish.
