So close but.....

Post by Psycheonabike »

Hi, Re my 1982 GL1100.

Won't idle unless choke is fully out. Sporadic firing on some cylinders and cylinder 4 gets HOT really quick.

If I pull the plugs on all other cylinders there a small change in the idle but if I pull #4 she cuts out altogether.

Used Randaks carb rebuild after cleaning carbs

Changed plugs and caps (NGK)

Changed oil

Got some new coils to try but unsure of wiring

Mixture screws are set at 2.5 turns out

Could it just be balancing given she was stood for about a year.

Thanks guys...

Out of balance is a pretty good bet after working on the carbs....
