    Pulled the heads off the bike and head gaskets appear to be the problem. As you can see in the attached photos portions of the gaskets are missing. Waiting on parts now. I’ll post again when it’s back together, thanks again for everyone’s help.

    Also after I shut off the bike a small amount of antifreeze leaks out of the crossover pipe between the exhaust pipes.

    Yes left side #2 and #4 as you are sitting on the bike. #4 plug steam cleaned but wet. Steam comes out right away but gets worse as the bike warms up. I flushed and put in new anti freeze when I get the bike. Steam definitely smells sweet and like antifreeze. Steady bubbles out of the radiator...

    I’m still trying to figure out why my 81 is billowing out white smoke on the left side (remember it sat for 7 years then my son got it to run took it for a ride and it overheated the bike due to a leaky radiator hose) so I rebuilt the carbs. Runs really nice, haven’t touched anything as far as...

    1982 GL1100 Interstate tachometer cable

    Hello all, I just got my 82 Interstate running for the first time this morning. It had been sitting for about 6 years. I bought it from a friend of mine for $300, 46,000 miles. He had told me there was a issue with the tach cable making noise when I bought it. Took the carbs off and took them...

    After cleaning the idle jets and replacing the O-rings on the fuel tubes between the carburetors, double checked the float height and did a careful bench sync I reinstalled the carbs. Fired right up and it idled really nice. Set the rpm to just under 1,000 with the idle stop screw and let it...

    Looking for 5.8 x 2.0mm O- Rings for the main circuit cross tubes on my GL1100 Carburetor. Randakks includes them with their full carb rebuild kit but I only need these 4 rings. They do not sell them alone. Anyone know where I could find them?

    I did not bench sync the carbs. Looks like you can get that set of gauges on Amazon for $72. Since I have another gold wing that I haven’t even started on I think I’ll get a set. So should I leave the pilot screws alone and sync the carbs with the gauges first?

    Thank you for all your information. I’ll take all the advice I can get. Running way better now but still idling around 1500 rpm. Do you think I should try opening up the pilot screws more?
