No question, that's a 1982 GL1100 engine in that frame. Are you sure it's a 1976 GL1000?

Do you have the frame number, by any chance? (not the VIN, but the frame number)

Yup, sure is. So what you have there is a Frankenbike, a 1976 GL1000 with a 1982 GL1100 engine shoehorned into it. I'd imagine it's incredibly fast. :)

Because it is not stock DO NOT assure the carbs are either. There are numbers on the carbs . gotta get that .

It is on a flat spot in behind the "domes" I am not sure you can see them with out pulling the carbs. maybe with a mirror. But then again you know you are going top pull them anyway ..... right?

It might not matter which 1100 carbs they are ( wingadmin can you chime in here I know it matters on the 1000's)

here is the ultimate website for carbs though. And I don't think anyone will disagree with me on that one.

If it were a GL 1000 you would have to remember to take the air cut off valve out first, the 1100 is different and I don't know if you need to or not, being it is stuffed in a 1000 frame.

i had pulled them out when i first got it and did a fast run of cleaning to get it to run. they came out and went back in very good. just unhooked the cables, breather and unbolted it, slid out ok

Something everyone should do when bringing back an old Wing is to change the timing belts. This is an "interference type engine" so if a belt breaks the pistons on that side will hit the valves and do a lot of damage. Good luck with her!
