    Dang Carburetors!

    I just did the same thing with my 81... rebuilt the carbs and had no leaks. When I put the carbs on the bike, I had fuel pissing every where. When I pulled the carbs off again, the #3 float wasn't adjusted right. I reset it, and reinstalled and now I no longer have fuel everywhere.

    Louder exhaust

    I have both. My 84 Standard has the stock exhaust so it is quiet. The 87 Interstate has a set of mufflers on that has the baffles removed. If it a little louder and gives it a nice sound, but if I am riding it for a long distance, it gets old in a hurry and I wind up wearing ear plugs...

    GL1000 engine swap

    The 1200 will need some clearance for it to fit in the 1000 frame... it will also require some conversion to switch the bike over to a hydraulic clutch as well and some electrical modifications for the fuel pump and the ignition. Oh, and there is the output shaft of the engine to worry about as...

    34 pict 3 jets

    I found them on ebay, and in the end, wound up drilling out the jets to the size I wanted them to be. Not sure I ever found a 35 either...

    Yup. That was where we stopped at a camp site in West Virginia.

    This is how I will remember it... I will always remember that trip. What started as just another trip became a ride with a friend.

    what did you do today

    Installed the carbs on the 81 and the bike fired right up, so I must have done something right... then the number three started to leak, so I have have done something wrong. Guess I'll be pulling them back out to fix whatever I did wrong. :head bang:

    what did you do today

    Spent some quality time with the carbs on the 81... all that’s left is bench syncing and installation.

    Utilising the Vetter luggage fully

    I can fit more stiff in my Vetter bags than I can in any other bags I have.

    BObber build

    I tried it with horns in my Vetter fairing. I think my problem was the way the horns were grounded and I didn't have them hooked up correctly. Now, I rewire whatever I am doing and install a relay as well.

    BObber build

    When I try to wire aftermarket switches into existing wires, I've always had problems. That's why I haven't been saying much
