Re: Deep cleaning via steam cleaning....Can't wait!!

Keep it away from wheel bearings too! Re-lube everything afterwards (carb linkages, cables, stand pivots etc.

Re: Heavy smoke from both sides

Smoke from leaking valve stem seals will clear after a few minutes running and you would see it while riding, after closing the throttle and opening it again at speed ( when the engine is pulling a high vacuum in the cylinders). If the smoke is there all the time, that suggests something else. What ...

Re: Carburetor Leaking Fuel

Thank you for the advice. I pulled the Carbs off the bike last night and noticed that there are fuel in the air chamber. Not sure why yet, but will start opening her up tonight. This is a sure sign of a flooding carb (due to stuck/dirty float needle or sticking float), or failed seals/gasket betwee...

Re: Throttle/push cable issue

My throttle cable broke, and I ordered a replacement for $15 on ebay, the pull cable seems alright. But the push cable is no where near long enough for some reason. There are zero kinks, and its too short even when I put it on the handle and then directly to the carb, not routing it anywhere. Just ...

Re: Steering Lock

Is it difficult to get a replacement key for the steering lock on a 76 GL1000. I purchased the bike a while ago and, only now, realised the steering lock is deficient of the key. I am not sure how much luck I would have if I contacted the previous owner but will do, if necessary. Probably easiest t...

I doubt that Jay Leno would buy it. He believes in actually DRIVING all of his. The second you put gas in that and take it for even a short ride, the value drops like a rock.

Re: Carburetor rebuild help

I did mine a couple of years ago and two of the pucks were stuck solid. I eventually resorted to drilling them and using a self-tapping screw (not sure what you call them in the US) to pull them out. Just make sure you only drill a few mm into them. I bought the Randakks kit, which comes with replac...

Re: GL 1000 HONDA Decal

You can get very thin double-sided adhesive tape or, as I have used in the past, a thin smear of clear silicone sealant. Good old Evo Stik would work, but not sure if the solvent in it (which evaporates) would react with the new paint.

Re: GL 1000 HONDA Decal

There is an ebayer that re-manufactures the foil type decals. I bought some from him a year or two ago. He's in Spain (check the location for any eBay decals to get the right ebayer). I'll have a look to see if I can find him and post here if I do. The decals are very good quality.

Re: Carburetor Bench Test results and questions

+1 on what Rambozo said. The "tines" are only there to centralise the needle in the jet, whilst allowing fuel to flow past, so it can fit in any orientation, as long as the wire is hooked over the operating tang.
