Postby noboundary » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:49 pm



Hi all,

I just picked up a non running 82 gl1100...it had not been rode in 19yrs.

Chris, are you asking about getting the intake tubes pushed back into the rubber carb boots? If so, I use a light coat of silicone grease and they will slide in easily ... usually!

Put the rubber part in boiling water fir a bit then slide on to the carbs..the heat will soften the rubber up

I spray a really light coating of WD on them, carbs 1 and 2 are a real bitch to get on with the lower fairing attached haha, and if you are having problems with the bolt holes lining up you haven't pushed hard enough :) the rubber almost completely covers the round metal piece on the carb when it's all the way on.
