1984 GL1200I No Power Issue

Post by Moorco » Mon Aug 03, 2015 2:19 pm

Hello Guys, First time posting. Inherited a 1984 GL1200I from long time Goldwing rider. Bike had carbs off of it when he passed on. I am new to bike repair but put it all back together balanced them and it starts great and idles great. When the bike is shifted into gear it has very little power to pull itself. I took it down the road and it will only get up to about 35mph and that's the top speed in 3rd gear, and it takes a good minute to get it up to 35. If I shift up again it starts slowing down. I only had 1 issue when trying to put it back together with a vacuum line that i was not sure of, coming from the carbs diagram looked like it connected to the vacuum line coming down from the front of the bike. Wasn't sure what this line coming down is but connected it to it. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated to get a new Wing rider on the road. Thanks.
