1989 1500 Carb Kit

Postby glenwegener » Wed Jun 08, 2016 8:50 am



I need a carb kit. Randakk is out of stock. Anybody ever use Saber Cycle kits before? Also, there I have a choice of sync tool. Gauges or mercury which you think is best to use?

southern powersports (Honda) you can most likely get a stock kit, and I like sticks best, the tubes don't lie

I have, a kit for my 1000 carbs and a vacuum slide for my 1500 and Saber will never get another penny from me. Both were junk.

Found a real reasonable guy who has done work for me before at a fair honest price. $350-400 for carb rebuild and change vacuum hoses. sounds good to me.

Thanks once again for all your input.

Carbtune works really good http://www.carbtune.com/
Careful buying one on Ebay, when I bought one, the British pounds conversion woeked out to about the same price that they sell it for.

Don't go anywhere near Saber Cycle. Have a read here: http://goldwingdocs.com/Vendors/Saber-Cycle_880

If you just want to throw your money away you could get your parts from Saber Cycle, or you could just drop it out the window. Pretty much the same effect. Help spread the word 8-)
