NO fuel left side gl1100 - 80

Post by zajt@hotmail.com »



Hi. I have som issue with the fuel in cyl 2 and 4. Ive checked so i have spark... Changed coil from left to right side just to test. Cyl 1 and 3 goes fine. Have cleanded and rebuilt carburators( by my self with help from Youtube and randakk). Checking fuelmix with Colortune and there is spark and only a slight blue spark if i give nearly full throttle. With Idle there is only spark. New plugs. When i open drain plug on 2 and 4 carburator there comes fuel. There is also vaccum, checked with indicator, on all four cylinders. Heaters on left side is nearly warm, no problem to hold my hand there, when i warm up The bike. Checked timing and valves so they are correct. Air/fuel screw doesnt change anything when adjusted. 1 1/2 turn from start. Have checked floaters probably three Times so i think i got them right. Any suggestion that i might have missed? Oh...Also checked Compression... 10 on all 4 cyl. Any ideas and tip...i'd be very glad to here.

I'd suspect plugged idle jets, I had same thing happen on my '80 1100 on the right side.

The jets on 1980 are removable, look for you tube videos for "How To".
