GL1000 Carb-to-Plenum Special FUEL Seals (included in GL1000
Now available - improved versions of Honda GL1000 carb-to-plenum fuel seals.
GL1000 Carb-to-Plenum Special FUEL Seals
New carb-to-plenum fuel seals are absolutely vital for a comprehensive carburetor overhaul on any 1975-1979 Honda GL 1000 GoldWing. When I do a carb overhaul on a GL1000, it takes me 6+ hours of labor to do a thorough job once the carbs are off the bike. Since I??ve done nearly a zillion of these jobs, I??m fairly efficient. It will probably take you all weekend. If you??re investing this kind of time, energy and dollars into an overhaul??don??t take shortcuts!
If you split the carbs from the central air plenum (as you should), you will positively need 4 of these seals. Your old ones will probably be 25+ years old and hard as a brick. Reusing the old ones will guarantee multiple leaks! Trust me on this.
The only way you can get these special fuel seals from Honda is to buy a complete carb overhaul kit (part number #16010-371-004). The Honda parts system nomenclature calls this a "Packing Set." Note that the "Packing Set" from Honda ONLY includes rubber parts and does not include jets, float valves and other items you will need to do a thorough carb overhaul. The Honda List price for the "Packing Set" set caps varies from $43.75 - $52.95 for each carb (US) depending on the greed factor of your local dealer. Again, you will need 4 of these packing sets just to get all 4 special carb-to-plenum fuel seals required to do one GL1000 motorcycle carb overhaul job??that??s a staggering $175.00 ?? $211.80 at list to get all 4!!!!!
Note: if you buy my GL1000 Master Carb Overhaul Kit, these special seals are included.
My special seals have precise dimensions and similar density as the OEM item including the radiused edge on one side. When you install these, remember that the "square? side of the O-ring is oriented toward the recess in each carb body... the radiused edge is oriented toward the plenum.
Constructed of Viton to resist the components of modern gasoline. These fit all 1975 - 1979 Honda GL1000 carburetors (4 required).
Remember - I'm selling these only in a set of 4 seals.
Considerable skill is required to install these high quality seals correctly. Since I can't control this important variable, there is no warranty with these. Rest assured that they are of the highest quality materials and workmanship.
If you are splitting your carbs from the plenum, you will also need my improved GL1000 plenum gasket as well as the GL1000 carb-to-plenum AIR o-rings sold separately.
