Super Easy carb Install

Post by Knoble Moto » Sat Mar 14, 2020 12:54 pm



I was asked to rebuild the carbs on a friend Goldwing. I found a super easy way to do the carb install, that will also make future work extremely easy.

Nice job there, when you went into Stop-Action I wondered where the audio went, well duh, it is Stop-Action...

Tnx for pulling this together.

That is a great piece of information to know and takes some of the reservations away about doing a rebuild to the carbs.

Now, can someone come up with an easy way of getting the gas tank out and back in easily.
Thank you for sharing the video.

Believe me - the gas tanks ears were burning during the removal and install. It was like Al Bundy getting a woman's size 12 foot into a size 6 shoe.

Looking at that just after doing a carb re and re, I would still would rather do it the old fashioned way.

I'm with you. I don't see any advantage in trying to piece it together inside the frame. Makes the install even harder. IMHO.

+1 but at least a thought outside the box. It really is not a big deal doing it "the old fashioned" way. Take the right hand carb caps off, slide it in, button it up. Saves separating the halves etc.

Well, for a start those are GL1100 carbs he's fitting to a GL1000. There is no way on earth that he could do that with the correct carbs. Getting the choke linkages back together would be impossible.
Grease the plenum gasket? I don't think so!
There is no real difficulty in getting 1100 carbs back on in a block and even the 1000 carbs will go back in with just the air cutoff and the #1 cap removed.


'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
