Easiest Way to Access the Carburetors
1989 GL1500 --- I need to remove my carbs and do a good cleaning. The pilot jets must be restricted or plugged, since the transition from idle up to where the main jets take over is very lean, with surging, misfiring, etc. I have overhauled carbs on numerous motorcycles, and that part, I am confident about.
My problem is: WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET TO THE CARBS? Which fairings or covers are the easiest to remove? The manual says the: Fairing lower cover; and the Fairing Inner Cover.
Is it possible to reach the carbs by removing the top compartment cover and ignition switch cover? I wish I could find a "YouTube" video, but so far, no luck.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
