Howard Halasz’ GL1100 Carburetor Repair Guide

“As you’re aware of, removing the GL1000 carbs requires removing the air cutoff valve first.

But on the GL1100s, the vacuum chambers #1 and #3 must be removed first. Then the rest of the carburetor assembly will slide out of the left side of the Gold Wing rather easily.

The way I do it, I loosen the manifold clamps and remove the 8 manifold bolts. Then I position the carb assembly to a position where I can reach the 4 screws that fasten the vacuum chambers to the carb bodies. Then I remove the chambers, slides, and springs from #1 and #3. Next comes disconnecting the throttle cables, choke cables, and fuel line between the plenum and fuel pump. Then the manifolds come off, and the carb assembly will come out through the left side of the motorcycle rather easily.”
