GL 1500 Carb Rebuild

Post by RJL »



Helping my son rebuild the carbs on his '90 GL 1500. We used the All Balls kits and they seem pretty complete, however the kit doesn't supply the O ring for the slow jet. Nor does the accelerator pump kit have the 2 O rings for the transfer tube. The ones on the carbs are rock hard and not reusable. We have looked locally & I have searched the internet trying to find the size of these O rings. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the fiche for the carb assembly. Item #6 is for the o-rings and the tube that come as a set for $34. If you can't find them elsewhere, you could get them from Partzilla.

If you are able to determine the sizes of the orings McMaster Carr will have them for you...

I've used them before for orings when rebuilding Kawasaki carbs... sorry I can't help with the sizes. Make sure you get the ethanol resistant ones. If you have the other ones and they are not too distorted maybe put a set of calipers on them as a starting point
