    Looking for information on single carb conversion for 1984 gl1200

    No, sorry I'm no help there. I know it is old enough to be stamped made in Italy rather than Spain. The outlets are 28 and 30 mm. If that makes it a 28/30, I couldn't find anything on it. I was looking for an accelerator pump diaphram once and copied all the numbers I could find on the...

    Looking for information on single carb conversion for 1984 gl1200

    I've been ridding an '83I for over three years with a single carb conversion. I've never had a minutes trouble with it. The only down side is a drop in milage, I average around 38 MPG mostly on two lane back roads. Sorry I'm no help on the tech side, I bought it with the conversion and just ride...

    High speed wobble

    Gerry, It scares me that you are trying to reproduce your high speed wobble. Many years ago I had a violent wreck on a 750 caused by a HSW. I never did find the cause and believe me, I checked everything. This was long before there was forum help so I visited all the local Honda shops and their...

    Close call

    I was on my normal 20 mile loop, narrow two lane with lots of twisties when I met a string of Harley riders. My left hand was up waving as I came in to a tight left hand curve. The next thing I see is a man and his wife coming right at me head on. He was still losing it to my right so I...

    back brakes gl1100 piston

    DO NOT RIDE YOUR BIKE UNTIL YOU HAVE GOOD HARD BRAKES! They will not improve by riding. It does sound like they need bled to remove all the air. Did you get the bleeder valve fixed?

    loose handlebars

    I can only confirm the 1100 measurment. I happen to own an 1100 and a set of one inch micrometers. The bars measure exactly .875" , that is 7/8" period. I have no idea why they would not be a metric size but they are not. BTW, 7/8" converts to 22.225 MM which is an odd measurment, they are not...

    Counter weights

    Hmmm...I wonder if the '74 750 four cyl. needed an enertia damper. in about 1978 I ran mine up through the gears pretty hard and just as I was shifting into high gear, I looked down and saw 90 MPH and decided that was enough. I just dumped the throttle and had a violent high speed wobble. It...

    93` Jeep Wrangler no start

    It sure sounds like the fuel pump. You should hear it run for a few seconds each time you turn the key on without hitting the starter. If not, you might try tapping the fuel tank with a rubber mallet to see if that might shake the contacts loose. Good luck.

    Really appreciating my 83

    The '85 and '86 1100 Shadow vee twin had a duel pin crank that balanced the piston firing. For some reason after that Honda decided to go back to the single pin crank for the Harley sound. They also got the Harley vibration! :head bang: I really liked my '85 Shadow but it didn't have the...

    My 75 starts it's return to the road

    +1 I had that with my 750. The problem showed up in wide sweeping curves. exiting the curve, it would pop into that detent and I would feel a little wiggle. Not a pleasant feeling.
