Re: 1978 gl 1000 leaking carbs

If there are crossover tubes then you for sure have 1100 carbs. I just replace those seals with nitrile o'rings from a set that I got from Harbor Freight. I don't remember the size but they were included in the set. I think the oring set cost about 6 bucks. I hope you realize you will have to separa...

Re: Dyna bead installation, the easy way.

Interesting! I use a longer tube on the bottle, fill tube with beads, remove tube from bottle and blow beads by mouth into tire. Have to remember to exhale not inhale. lol

Re: I'm feeling dark... new Austone Taxi Tire

Admin, I also tried the Austone ct. After almost 600 miles I removed it and went back to an Avon. There were numerous reasons that I didn't like it. (later) The deciding negative factor was, above 85 mph the bike felt unstable as though the tire was expanding as the rpm increased. I could actually f...

Re: Goldwing 1100i camshaft oil seals

Re: Dyna Beads vs Counteract Balancing Beads

Thanks for the report. I am hesitant to use Dynabeads again. With the last set of tires, Avon Venums, the beads turned to powder. As in no round beads left at all. These were recycled beads from the previous tires. On the new set of E4s I am using weights again because of this.

Turned out to be the fuel pump. I guess it just couldn't keep up with demand therefore all 4 cylinders ran lean but with no stumbling like usually happens with a faulty fuel pump.
