Randakks Master Carb Overhaul Kit®: Honda GL1500

World’s Best GL1500 Kit!

100-1227 ft500 master carb kit 03

 

This kit is proprietary to Randakks…you won’t find this available anywhere else at any price. 

 

If you’ve studied Honda’s parts fiches for each model year, you’ll discover that Honda made many mistakes, duplications, omissions, and outright illogical content decisions in their coverage of carb repair “packing sets” for the GL1500.

One example: the only way to get the necessary o-rings for the accelerator pump discharge tube from Honda is to buy a whole new accelerator pump discharge tube!

 

Aftermarket repair kits suffer from all these problems.

This Master Kit avoids these issues. You will have all the expendable parts you need to do a thorough, comprehensive overhaul.

All O-rings Are Not The Same!

 

The round o-rings in each Master Kit are made of Viton rather than ordinary nitrile (Buna-N) as found in other aftermarket carb kits. One good case of severe engine overheating can ruin the carb o-rings found in ordinary kits? Randakk’s o-rings are the best available!

VitonOring

Viton is superior to nitrile in terms of:

  • Heat tolerance (400 degrees F vs. 250 degrees F)
  • Compression set
  • Permeation

We even include rebuild kits for the accelerator pump as required for each application.

Recommendation

 

You will need access to good reference material for a successful rebuild, such as the official Honda Factory Workshop Manual.

 

 


 

 

 

Quick Notes:

 

No jets or jet needles are supplied with our kits. These can normally be cleaned and reused. “Dress” the jet tower cavities with crocus cloth or similar to remove oxidation and burrs, then use a lubricant like Vaseline to insert the main jets.

No float valve/seat assemblies in our kit.

No fuel filter is included. But it would be a crime to redo your carbs and not take prudent measures to ensure a pure fuel supply!

These carbs are quite simple and very easy to overhaul. The most difficult part is the removal and re-installation of the body “Tupperware,” etc. to get to them!

Easy install once you get to this point!

 

 

Considerable skill is required to install this high-quality kit correctly. Since Randakk’s cannot control this important variable, there is no warranty on these. Rest assured that they are of the highest quality materials and workmanship. Each kit has been carefully packed and inspected to ensure that all items are included.
