I have a 1982gl1100i that I want to convert to single carb, am looking for manifold and carb together, but will take concideration of all possibilities.

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

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.
