78 Goldwing Carb Flooding....
« on: Apr 23, 2018, 18:48:52 »
I rebuilt it, it was fine, traded bike. 1 year later the new owner blew air into carbs to "clean it out" now it leaks alot  according to hin. I'm getting it back tonite  (woo hoo!) But what could have been damaged and could crap have been blown into motor? Obviously I have to pull and clean buy im tring to trouble shoot abit before I get it home. Thanks for your thoughts

More likely that the air blew in and stuck a float.   Easy fix sometimes by tapping the float bowls.   Otherwise remove and replace the float needles.

pull th edipstick check th eoil for gas change if needed

with fuel shut off and kill switch in the off position

pull the plugs STAND WELL BACK AND TO THE SIDE crank over to relieve and hydraulic lock and spit out any leaked in fue;

do this in a safe area with rags over teh spark plug holes a gl1000 can spit fule 10 ft easy if it has a jug full

Thanks guys! I dug into it last night. Gonna get a complete rebuild kit since it's off, new needles also. I'm guessing when I replaced one needle and seat that it wasn't own. Needle was corroded, others are perfect. Man...gas was everywhere lol definitely getting an oil change. Being unlucky....i dropped the carbs and broke a float bowl support.....weeeeee
