Year compatability

Postby fishnquest » Mon Aug 02, 2010 3:38 pm



New member here. I have a 1981 GL1100 I would like to get going for my son. The carbs are shot; the jets are totally seized. This bike has been sitting for a long time. We did start it before tearing into it and it does run (actually quite nicely). The previous owners wife literally beat this thing with a bat. I finally got one of the carb jets out with a screw extractor but the tip stayed down in there. I found some carbs on ebay but for a 1980 and some for a 1982. Are they the same? Will they just bolt on? Anyone know where else I could get carbs? Thanks for the help.

Looking at the parts manual, 81 has it's own part numbers. You might keep checking EBay or maybe start with these folks, good luck.

Thanks for the help; I'd hate to muck this thing up. I've been told the "engines" are the same and the carbs will bolt on but I guess that does not mean the carbs themselves are the same. I got what I thought was good info here:
