Carbs on 92 model GL 1500

Post by coach94 » Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:29 am

Starts and idles good, but if you give it the gas in a hurry, it dies. If it were a car I would say accelerator pump. If so can you tell me where it is? Can I replace it?

I'm not sure about you year..I have a 88 and the accelerator pump also was bad.
The diaphragm was hardened.
I did buy a "kit"($50) altho it didn't include the "O" rings for the riser tube(a must replace item)
I did mine without pulling the carbs.BUT it was really tight quarters and getting to the bottom screw needed a Phillips bit in a box end wrench.
It took quite a while as there is a bunch of plastic to come off and the top plate on the carbs need to be loosened to free the riser tube.
