HELP!! PARTS NEEDED 81 GL1100

Postby DCoxson1969 » Fri Apr 30, 2010 7:07 am



I have fuel gushing out of the juel joint pipes between the carbs. I need the o-rings that go on them, and I am told Honda no longer makes them. Does any one know where I can find them? The guy working on my carbs says I need six of them and they have to be a certain material that gas does not eat, so the regular rubber ones will not work. Any help would be appriciated.

Sounds like you need to take a visit to Randakk's Carburetor Parts page.

Unfortunitaly Randakk will not sell the o-rings by themselves, but he did give me another website that is amazing. They have the o-rings both big and small for $0.80 each. The web site is http://www.crc2onlinecatalog.com check them out. Once again, thank you all for the quick and helpfull responses. Keep the shiny side up!

Got the parts, took about a week. Guy putting my carbs together said the o-rings were a good fit. I have not put them on the bike yet, but so far so good.

I was able to find nitrile metric and standard o-ring kits at Harbor Freight. All the o-rings on my bike, except the intake rings, are from there. That includes the tube rings for the carbs. No leaks in 2 years...(knocks on wood)

Finally got the carbs on and got it started. It runs a little rough but he said it would till I get it back to him to do final adjustment. Took it for a test ride, and found out at the bottom of my drive way that I have no brakes. I just bought the bike and it had sat since 05, so I guess that should have been expected. Spent a couple hours on the front brakes alone, got them working pretty good. Now my problem is with the back brake. The piston in the caliper is frozen in place, and I tried for about another hour to get it out being carefull not to mark up the piston. What can I do to get it out so I can rebuild the caliper?

One of my front pistons was seized pretty good like that when I was rebuilding my brakes.

I ended up taking the caliper off, but leaving it connected to the brake line, then putting a steel bar (you could also use one of the old brake pads) in place of the brake pads. Then I just pumped, and let the brake fluid pressure push the pistons all the way out.

I did try using the brake fluid pressure but did not work. I called the guy that did the carbs on my bike and he said to bring it to him and he will get it out. He said he will try an air gun he has first, if that don't work he will put a grease fitting in where the bleeder goes and pump grease into it and that will pop it out. Then I will do the rebuild from there.
