Re: GL1000 Carburettor Top Buttons

Look here. http://wingovations.com/gl1000-new-parts/4579471065

Some guys have used a nickel coin for replacement. Just be careful with the glue there is an air duct up there.

Re: Is it possible to install abs system for gl1000 1978?

Not ABS but without changing the entire front end the single best method for improving the front and rear brakes is stainless steel brake lines. A huge improvement over rubber lines.

Slightly smaller, but more ah an cca.

Just recommending the correct size. There are many good quality AGM batteries that fit that will meet your CCA requirements. Ride safe.

That particular battery is physically smaller than original. You need a YTX24HL. I have no knowledge of that brand.

Re: Need advice on repairing a torn slide diaphragm

My vote is on the JBM diaphram. Just did the same on my1500. Quality product. Do you really want to have to pull the carbs again if the patch doesn' t work. And odds are it won't considering it is in the place where the most movement is. How many glues are really gas "proof"?

That sounds like a lot. I have never noticed any appreciable amount of oil usage between oil changes on my 76. I have owned it for 13 years and 50k miles. Never had to add oil.

Re: Tire howl during turns

Tire howl when leaning is usually generated by a cupped rear tire. Dunlops are notorious for this. Your front tire doesn't look cupped. What does the rear tire look like?

Re: 85 GL1200 ticking noise

Not necessarily. Pump may just not be getting the normal amount of fuel causing the pump ticking to be audible. It is always ticking you just can't hear it. No tick no work. This is just one possibility for the audible ticking.

Re: 85 GL1200 ticking noise

Ticking fuel pump is not an indication that the pump is failing. The electrical contacts inside are doing what they are supposed to do. In most cases when the sound gets loud enough to hear it usually means it is starving for fuel. Possible clogged fuel filter, fuel line or some kind of restriction ...

Re: Voltage regulator

Ditto on what Bellboy said.
Your bike has an alternator with built in regulator. It is located down by you left foot peg. Easy to rebuild yourself. If you do, also I suggest you replace the rubber dampers while you are in there.

Re: 1981 gl1100 fuel issue!

Did you check and set the float adjustment? They have to be adjusted to the exact correct level. Close doesn't count with these carbs. There is also a possibility that the float valves are bad and leaking.
