1982 GL1100i Carburetor Leak

Post by RuDogGL » Mon May 28, 2018 6:45 pm



Carburetor leaking after using the Randakk's Overhaul Kit to replace every O-rings and Gasket that was already in the Carburetor before the Overhaul, and there was no content list with my Order, so I had no ideal about some of the O-rings placement and what they were for and after researching and looking through the Manual, and a lot of the Goldwings Forums I still wasn't able to locate were they should go. Thanks to Aussie81Interstated I was able to find out about the Petcock, but that's all and Now I have a leak, which mean I have to remove the Carburetors again. Not happy about that. Is there a step by step instructions pointing out where everything is suppose to go, so when I'm finish and excited about it, I do not get my Hopes drowned by a gas leak?

Also save time.Bench test the carbs first.
Adjust the throttle plates for equal opening..vacuum each carb and verify the slide action...Gravity fill the carbs and drain each carbs to measure amount for equal.
This allows you to locate leaks before install to fix.
Sync the carbs after install.
Once and done.
