choke problem x2

Postby tyrevere » Fri Aug 28, 2015 4:18 pm



ok, so as we all know you try to fix something you end up looking at things that need fixing.

I was and still ( a little) having acceleration issues. (see original post choke Problem).

one guy said replace the fuel filter. so I get one take off the seat and radio cover area... well the fuel line is 3 different sizes.. of course I realize that I purchased it used several years ago so nothing is original equipment. it comes out of the fuel tank with one size ( don't know the size) and hooks up to the fuel filter, then on the outlet of the fuel filter it goes to 3/8 hose. then to the valve assembly that is 1/2 inch.....I replaced the fuel filter and had to replace all those hoses to what that was there, since the Honda dealer by me was closed. the question I have is , does anyone have a diagram of the fuel lines? I tried looking online and I get Honda civic or other Honda bikes but not the 1988 Goldwing 1500. I am going to speculate that the original gas hose is two different sizes ?

also I found that the left side of the carb is not moving along with the right side at an even pace.. the left side is a little slow in moving in and out. ( the round cylinder looking thing inside of the carb). would that cause my hesitation or feeling like it is starving for air or fuel?

The diagram is here http://www.westernhonda.com/fiche_section_detail.asp?section=4325072&category=Motorcycles&make=Honda&year=1988&fveh=190487 but I can't tell whether or not the line sizes are different.

After the carbs have been synced,those 2 slides should move exactly the same...If one has a bad diaphragm or is dragging it can respond slower and fuel/air starve half the engine..

How do you know if it's a bad diaphram ? Take the carb off? The left side hangs up at times.

Pinhole or tear reduces the response time of the slide.Dirt sticks the slide.
I've heard that the slides can be removed without completly removing the carb assembly.Ive never tried it.
