I don't think would do anything but make it worse. I had a 1981 CB900C that had the air cut off valves one went bad and it ran like crap till I replaced all of them then balanced the carbs. The air by pass valve to shut's fuel off to prevent backfireing. I wonder of a air cool'd VW carburator would work on GL1100 engine if an intake manifold was made I've seen a few single carb and manifolds on eBay.

You can supposedly coat the diaphrams with permatex #3 to make then air tight and the bike will run fine, might backfire some on closed throttle, haven't really tried this myself but makes sense for a poor-boy fix.

Yes it does I never tried the # 3 goo but did use a spot of duct tape once on a freinds CB350 for quick fix on a Sunday I figured if duct tape could get the space shuttle back home it should work it did for a while.
