Will be supplying Manifolds & Manifold/Carburetor combinations for all 4-cylinder GL's (plus ancillary pre-heat induction kits) for single-carb installs. Full instructions on install and set-up.

Interesting Video should you choose to build your own too...

Good Luck,
Jessco

Steve, pricing has not yet been determined, GL1200-specific versions will be available, and specifications will be posted as well...

...probably best to keep checking into the webpage every so often, as I don't want to appear as "soliciting product only" and corrupting Forum etiquette even though I found this thread via Googles search engine and thought I would simply spread-the-word that alternatives are soon to be available...

Options are always good.
Thanks,
Jessco

I thank you for quick reply, and I will keep watch! I love my aspy, so much smaller feel than 1100i, yet not bulkey like the 15's and 18's. And, I can pull the same as them far less the exspense. I worked all my life, and 20-25 grand is out of the question for a motorcycle. Come to think about it, could of got (10) 1200's for the price of new 1800. Again, thanks, Steve

this is what the vendor on ebay is saying about his manifold matched with a vw carb. Professionally made custom carb conversion MANIFOLD to smooth out your HONDA GOLDWING GL1200 performance. No more powerband dead spots, no more carburetor syncing headaches--This 4-to-one carb modification will increase your low end torque and allow engine to accelerate from idle to WOT without lulls.

I installed the eBay kit from Juan Fernandez. Very pleased with the results. I could get technical with how longer intake tubes result in greater low-end torque (remember the old MOPAR 413 Long Ram)? Top end will drop slightly from 115 to maybe 95 but who needs that? Get a crotch rocket. I found that around town fuel milage was actually better due to the bike being able to pull from a higher gear without bogging down.

This system works well. Just finished installing on customer bike 6/20/15 and performs very well. The carburetor needs dialing in and is not a plug and play system. Mileage about the same, slight bog at 1500rpm but engine pulls through and strong through 7000rpm

...Not many decide to afford my $1850 minimum price for one of my conversions nowadays, but I still make them. They're highly refined at this point, offering overall performance noticeably above that of a factory rack. Ignition improvements are now part of my conversion. Though I still build and sell my conversion, I require the bike in my shop for the installation, which may require an expense beyond what most are willing to spend.
I've had a much easier life making forward controls for the 1000/1100 bikes.
No, I'm still around and still enjoying trying to sell my sh*t for the old Goldwing's!
Still helping others enjoy their bike as much as I enjoy my own.
