air cut off

Postby hogman » Sat Aug 06, 2011 10:53 pm



Any suggestions on installing new air cut offs on 82 gl1100I. Bought new kits and they do not want to slide in position. Have about destroyed one trying to get in.

Are the carbs off and split apart? If not it's real tough to do. Are you sure you are putting them in the right side up/out? Is teh spring facing the right way too?

Read sometimes you may need to file ball down a little to get to slide in.Tried this and got to go in. Now need to tune. Now very difficult to adjust pilot screws under carbs. Cannot get a tool to screws.

You can make a stubby screw driver to fit out of a bolt or there is a tool for this..$25 at most shops

My air cutoff valves were all but seized in the hole.After removal I carefully cleaned the oxidized hole and polished it up.Then the new air cutoff valve slid smoothly in place.
I used some pieces from the dremel kit.NOT with the dremel tool,just by hand.

Might I ask where or who you got the new air cut outs from? This may explain why they did not fit correctly. Also, as in the post above, that angled screwdriver is a great tool. I bought one and now all of a sudden have many uses and friends looking to borrow it. Well worth the $30, shipped to my house from the local honda dealer.


    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape!
