GL1100 Carburetor Parts

Post by randall_l_davis » Sun Feb 03, 2019 7:38 pm



Hello all. I have a 1983 GL1100I and I am still rebuilding/reconditioning/restoring my dad’s old bike. I’m almost done with the carbs but I think I may be missing these brass knock pins that connect the plenums of the carbs. They are little brass cylinders that go in little holes where the plenums connect. I don’t know if I am missing one or if it’s supposed to be missing but there is one that is not where there is a hole for one. I can not locate these anywhere online and I was wondering if there was someone out there that had some extras that wanted to sell them. The part number is: 16178-463-004. I could just buy a used carb assy for parts but that would be more than I would want to spend. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Good evening!
Did you find the pins you are looking for? I have a set of junk carbs and would be happy to send you the pins off those. Just send me a self addressed shipping envelope and I will send them to you. No charge. Just happy to help out.
Message me if that works for you.

:D you’re awesome! That would work great! That is the last piece of the carb puzzle that I needed so I can put the carbs back on and reinstall the gas tank, fuel lines, filter, and crank her up! Where do I need to send the envelope?

Send it to Kevin Hagen, 90720 state highway 251, Austin, mn 55912. I will dig the parts out tonight when I get home and send you a pic to make sure they are correct. Glad I could help!!

Here is a pic of the metal dowels. One of them has some damage but with some emory cloth you should be able to smother it out. There is just the two on this carb. Let me know if you need anything else.

Looks right. I’ll know when I get them. If it doesn’t work, then I’m only out $1. No worries. And it’s the effort that’s worth it anyway. And I appreciate it. In the meantime, I will try the local Honda dealership to see if they can procure some just in case. That was my next place to check. Really don’t want to go that route because I’ll most definitely get overcharged. Thank you again for your help. I’ll send the envelope tomorrow.

I got your letter in the mail today. I put the parts in the mail so hopefully you will get them in a few days. Hope it all goes together well!
