Honda GL1000 Carb Code Location

This is covered in my GL1000 Carb Rebuild Video, but just in case you haven’t made that great investment…

Here’s a photo showing the location of the all-important GL1000 Carb Codes:

In this case, the code is 755A indicating 1975 US-market carbs.

To view the codes with the carbs still on the bike, use a small inspection mirror and a strong light. You can get such a mirror in the tool department at Sears. Be sure to check all 4 carbs…they must match! More details here.

  1. Just bought a decent 76 GL1000 that has a build date of 12-75. The carbs are all 755’s which implies they are 1975 carbs on a 1976 bike. It this kind of normal due to the build date?

    • No. Honda never did that to my knowledge. Your carbs have been switched at some point. No biggie …as the 755s run slightly better.

      • I also have 1975 k1 early numbers starting 200—- with 755a carbs registered in uk.
        I was informed by vintage goldwing club this correct for early Goldwing’s that came to Europe. They also know of another seven in the uk

        • !975 model should be a K0. Otherwise yes.

          • Warren says:

            So now I have another 76–this time it’s the LTD. carbs are 763A which should be correct. Everything I read says the mechanicals of the LTD are identical so why the 763A verses the the common 76 gl1000 carbs??
