I have a 1981 gl1100. I suspect the vacum advance is not working... how can I check and see?

also, bike has the single carb conversion done to it.... I pulled the vac line off the carb and it did not affect how the bike ran

ideas anyone?

Vacuum advance and pluse generator (VACUUM ADVANCE REBUILD). Go to classicgoldwings.com. Under the forum for 1100's there is a long discussion. Most guys will just block off the hose and be good. Otherwise you are dismantling half the bike to get at it. Anyway,read that and decide.
