82 interstate carbs fit on an 81 1100?

Postby B0b88 » Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:14 am



Messed up my 81 carbs by taking a drill bit to the idle jets lol... Impatience is my downfall :/ now the idle jet sucks more gas than the main jet can hahaha so much gas that it came out the mufflers after I got it started.. Also will the 82 aspencade carbs fit as well?

Even the aspencade? I've been looking on eBay and its pretty slim pickins... No one will even reply to me when I ask it the carbs are seized :(

What are you going to do with the carbs? I might be able to fix it, don't know though..I can probably pull the jets but finding new used ones is a mission..

I have 82 carbs on my 81. I like the removable jets on the later model. 82 and 83 have the removable jets.

where in LA are you located? i have always wondered if the press in style carb body could be retrofitted to use thread in jets. i am in the long beach area.

Indianakid that was my plan A but after many tries of yanking the original idle jets out with drywall/sheet metal screws after leaving carb cleaner, 50/50 acetone solution and even tried Tabasco overnight haha I couldn't yank those little bastards out! The neighbors if they heard me trying to pull them probably thought I was a constipated mess :lol: I just ordered a fairly decent looking set (knocks on wood) of 82's off of eBay

I figured the same thing you are thinking... Pull the jets tap the tower and install 82 threaded idle jets...

Perhaps take the damaged jets, intentionally clog them with J-B Weld, then once cured, "drill" them out to the correct size? Just a stab in the dark, but it might get you working again.
