1985 GL1200 Interstate Carb. Problems

Post by saltydwg » Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:02 pm



I have a Carb. with worn out slide diaphragms. I have found on ebay replacements for the diaphragms. Does anybody know if these replacements will work and how hard they are to replace. Where can I find replacement slides with diaphragms installed? Slide part# 16111-MG9/004 Carb part# 16100-MG9-744

The diaphragms on ebay will fit my slide part # 16111-MG9/004

The problem with the replacement diaphragm is getting the on the slides. The slides do not easily come apart and break easkly,

If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.

Hello all,

i just replaced my diaphragms on my GL1200 interstate.
I found them cheap on aliexpress.
turned out membranes from a HMHonda VLX 400 (Steed 400) Motorbike Keihin carburateur
are a match, only need to re-use your old needles because these are different size.
i bought them complete at 11.49 dollar a piece.
my bike runs like new.

Glad if this might be any help.
