home made float gauge?? Need help

Getting ready to pull and go over my carbs for the first time. Any suggestions on setting the floats on a budget? Also was wondering if there are any Wingers that would be willing to help me sync? I live near Sandusky Ohio by Cedar Point.

Re: How much seafoam is too much?

I dont think its ever been done to be honest... Bike is new to me so not sure. Only 5k on the ole girl. I dont have any gauges, or knowledge for that matter to do it so I may have to take it to a shop for that. Any clue what would be a reasonable price to pay for sync? Also If I sync them and no dif...

How much seafoam is too much?

I am trying to get my carbs to clear up (bad low speed stumble and carb pop)... Tried 1 tank with one ounce per gallon as per the instructions and don't notice any improvement. How much can be used? Bike runs fine at higher rpm.

thanks for the input....

Re: 1986 GL1200 runs rough at low rpm

Just put my first full tank with seafoam in the ole girl.... Hoping for the best. If I do need to pull the carbs what manual should I purchase?

Re: 1986 GL1200 runs rough at low rpm

Is it best to have a complete rebuild kit if I need to do a carb cleaning or just pull them apart and clean what is there? Never done that before either! Will need a service manual for these projects I would think....

Re: 1986 GL1200 runs rough at low rpm

Thanks for the reply... I have heard that seafoam is a good start so I will take your advise. Sure hope it smooths out... Pulling the carbs and rebuilding sounds like a big project. Is one tank full usually enough??

1986 GL1200 runs rough at low rpm

Hello everyone... I just purchased a 1986 Aspencade with only 5000 miles! She is clean and well taken care of but obviously hasn't been driven much. It is running poorly at lower rpms and pops back through the carb. Very cold blooded. Has a fresh set of plugs and air filter. Any clues on where to st...
