79 carbs on 75 long block sync tips?

Post by Magonsterz! »

79 OEM carb stack on 75 GL1000 engine. About to sync carbs any tips to on what to favor, richer vs leaner idle mixture screw, 79 is 2 turns 75 calls for less? All other prerequisites have been performed, timing, compression test, valve lash set to 75 OEM specs. Currently starts easily, runs, comes up to temp with zero issues, warm idles at 1100 ish.

Here is the official GL1000 Honda Shop Manual, where you'll find all info is very detailled.

Hope this helps.
