Starting over on my GL1100

Post by chief771 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 12:04 am



Good evening fellow wingers! Well, I had my bike running then decided to pull the gas tank, change timing belts, and general maintenance. I just hope I can get it back together again! The tank was a **** to get out but I put it back tonight and it worked like a dream! Going to attach some pics of the "bones".

Anyway I got some of it back together tonight and it went smooth as butter
Still cant figure out why the choke wont work. The cable pulls the choke hardware ok but the choke valves wont close. Its driving me crazy cuz I cant figure it out. Any suggestions folks?

Got the choke figured out. Turns out the choke was stuck and I was able to get it moving. I decided to just remove the carbs again and clean them again. I was surprised at all the junk in the carbs. A more extensive cleaning this time.

Hi all. I got the carbs boiled out and clean
But the choke on the right side is still hanging up. It looks like the shafts from the carbs may be bent or out of place. Is there anyway to fix that issue?

Just a short update since it has been a while. I removed the gas tank and got that nice and clean. I also ordered randaks petcock repair kit and got the petcock fixed. No more leak! O also am almost done with the side covers. Just have to shoot them with clear coat to protect the new paint and badges. Going to rebuild the brake calipers here shortly as soon as the parts come. Something to keep my mind off winter anyway. Pics coming shortly!
