Running Problems

Postby Poohman » Thu May 24, 2012 8:45 pm



Ok Hereis my problem and what I has been done so far: 85 gl1200

The Bike has a small exhaust leak at connection from header pipe to baffle. The wing will not go over 50 mph. It does backfire when trying to excellarate after 4th gear.

Took it to a bike shop and the put new coils, carb needles and jets. changed oil, then they told me it would be 532.00 for 4 new slide diaphrams. I said no I would do them myself. Bought new ones and put them one, Thanks to randakk.

What in the Heek is wrong with this bike. I am at my witt's ends and want to at least get it running good.

Thanks for all the help.

Questions....Were these problems before or after the repairs.? or both.?
The backfiring.....In the intake or out of the exhaust.?
Did you by chance static test the slide operation with a vacuum cleaner before the carbs were installed.?
