90 degree idle air mixture screwdriver

Postby Jimsfirstwing » Fri Jul 18, 2014 8:23 pm



Many different types out there, but I can't afford to keep buying til I find the right one. 1981 GL1100 need to set idle air mixture so I can sync the carbs. Where can a person get one, THE RIGHT ONE without breaking the bank?

Yes. But one review I read from a Goldwing owner said it didn't work on his. Something about the fact that it wasn't angled exactly at 90 degrees, more like 110 degrees??? I need one that works on my GL1100. Ya know what I mean. I asked the local honda shop if I could rent his, they looked at me like I had 3 eyes. ITS A 5 MINUTE BORROW!!!

worked for me on 1100's but I cut away part of the collar on the end to make it easier to fit on to the carb body there is a tube that protects the screw head.
