    Carb leak

    Also, there are O rings under the float needle seat, which are prone to failure Replace all of the O rings in your carbs CycleOrings.com
  2. CycleOrings.com for the O rings It's a bit hard to tell, but are you confusing the pilot jet with the pilot screw? The pilot jet is what you're showing in the pics, they need to have the rubber caps over them The pilot screws are on the top front of the carbs
  3. With pods and 4-1, set the fuel screw one turn out from lightly seated and the air screw around 2 turns Tune the idle with the air screw Fresh O rings are very helpful
  4. SO, did you replace all of the O rings in your carbs Because the one on the mixture screw could be causing your problems

You can likely find something similar closer to you.
  6. http://zeus.mtsac.edu/~cliff/storage/gs/Mikuni_BS-CV_Carburetor_Rebuild_Tutorial.pdf CycleOrings.com If those O rings crumbled, imagine what the other O rings look like after 35 years If you haven't taken the carb rack completely apart, you haven't cleaned the carbs
  7. You also need a bigger front sprocket
  8. No direct bolt ons Late 80/90s Tokikos are the go to, with an adapter plate https://www.thegsresources.com/_forum/showthread.php?222549-Twinpot-Brake-Upgrade-on-GS1100E-GS750E-GS750ES-GS1000G-GS1000E-GS850G
  9. It's a 79 Kickstart and VM carbs are only on the 79

    Is it OEM? Was it cheap?
  11. Yeah, the state I live in, Oregon, is about twice the size of England, and larger than the UK. So, a lot of chapters would be needed
  12. go here http://members.dslextreme.com/users/bikecliff/ and look around for the cam chain tensioner rebuild. A seal, O ring and some cleaning and you're good My automatic is still good at 84,000 miles My opinion on your barrel wear is that someone took the tensioner off and never released the plunger when reinstalling.
  13. Follow this guide for your carbs http://zeus.mtsac.edu/~cliff/storage/gs/Mikuni_BS-CV_Carburetor_Rebuild_Tutorial.pdf There's an O ring under the float valve seat that fails and fills the carbs I see you're just up the road from me

    Fuel petcock

    If you want to get one that fits, works and has the vacuum tap, you need a 1980 GS 1000 E or S petcock. Just check the parts fiche for that part
  15. It's only $4.48 on my local dealers web site. See if that dealer has a web site, order online and, when the parts come in, take your woman to lunch in an exotic location (and pick up your parts)
