Was using an easy out to remove my pressed in slow jets, and of course 3 came out no problem, then Murphy's law kicked in and the easy out broke off in the last one(#1 carb). On top of that, was trying to drill it out and was tapping the side of the carb with a piece of wood and the friggin carb cracked. :x Guess I'm heading to ebay. What year did they stop pressing the jets in?
I believe '81 was last year for pressed in jets. my '82 has screw in ones. "Hey how is ol' Tipsy doin' anyway?"

Thanks, found a complete assembly off an 83 on ebay for $150. Is the only difference the jets, are other parts interchangeable? Hopefully I can just clean and sync the new ones.

Can't say for sure but my bit of research says that 80-83 are interchangeable:

I searched by typing the following into the google search box:
site:goldwingdocs.com carbs interchangeable gl1100

no space between the word "site" and the address followed by the search terms, in this case "carbs interchangeable gl1100" Works for any site.
Here are the results:

Good Luck

Which guitar string passes through the idle jet when it is clean? Had some extra B string(second thinnest) and it wouldn't pass through the center hole, but passed through the side holes easily. Guess I'll try the high E string after some more soaking.

the idle jets are a #35 which means the jet dia is .35mm which equals .0138 inches. so i have used a .013 diameter string. depending on if you are using heavy or light strings it could be the high E or B. but any wire that is .013 - .0138 will work just fine.

Gotcha. The B string I was using is .39mm. The E is .32mm, should be the ticket. Thanks
