Re: GL1000 engine shutting down at lower speeds (while running warm)

If the carbs or a carb is flooding some of the unburnt fuel will end up mixed with the engine oil. remove the oil filler screw cap and see if there is any trace of petrol by sniffing around the oil fill hole.

When you rebuilt the carbs did you polish the sliders and dash pot. also set the float level height.

Re: GL1000 engine shutting down at lower speeds (while running warm)

First I would re check the point gap then the static timing. also check to see if air is being sucked in around the carb manifolds at the cylinder head and carb body

Don't have any idea what any of them are putting out as far as pressure, but found the Carter P72190 on Amazon for $36. so will tr...

Re: GL1000 weaving, wobbling, wallowing

You said that you checked the tyre pressure but have you checked the tyres for bulges or out of shape buckled wheels.

Also I have noticed you posted about wobble head shake and handling problems a few years back is this the same bike?
