Hello Friend,

I just completed a complete single carb conversion on my 1986 gl1200 Aspencade. Its the one you see on E-bay sold by Juan Fernandez. Here is the link to my 48 min You Tube video of the install. Feel free to ask any questions. John

Update. In the video above I speak of how rough she is riding. Bogging coming out of first and second gear with no acceleration. Here is the fix for it. Just came back after a 150 mile ride today after the fix and she is smooth. Great idle and great take off. Here is a link to the fix. Look at how to solder the hole shut on the throttle butterfly and how to move the little tube that sprays gas in the carb closer to the inner wall of the carb. Set your screws on the carb to 2 1/2 turns outward and start her up. HUGE IMPROVEMENT no bogging or stumbling. You have to remove the carb to do it. It might be better if you get the kit to do it before install. Hope this helps anyone who is suffering..........

Do you have a phone number or address or web site where to order the type of plenum you have on Goldwing docs
I watched the video and understand the additions you added
thanks Robert brown
