Convert Cali GL1200 to 49 State emissions

Post by oldgoldwingguy » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:51 am



Hi, I just bought a 1987 GL1200A with a side car, Barn find. It turns out to be a California state bike. I removed the carbs to overhaul.
Has anyone removed all this extra emission control stuff, any issues to be aware of? I just want a simple, stoke GL1200 to take the kids out for rides, and maybe up to Americade. Way to many vacume hoses, and canister. Thanks

I took all that junk off and started plugging holes. Plug the pipping going to the head...cut it off and plug? Should be some write up here about it. Use search to find more info. I never saw any big issues after.
