Updated Tech Tip: Honda GL1000 Carb Kits Compared
I wrote this Tech Tip back in November, 2002 just before I began offering my own proprietary carb overhaul kits.
But, the information I wrote had gotten pretty stale.
Thankfully, a new and objective analysis of available Honda GL1000 carb kits has just been done by Ron Carmichael.
I didn't seek the creation of this new material, but I think it is comprehensive and objective. The range of merchandise (and design philosophies) available in the marketplace is pretty amazing.

"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers"
That quote above is from the famous St. Crispin's Day speech in Shakespeare's best historical play:
Henry V. You owe it to yourself to see at least one production of that masterpiece in your lifetime.
And....you really do meet the nicest people on a Honda. Pictured on the right is my pal Winston and "Famous Honda Jay" on a recent outing. Winston is the one on the right riding the custom GL1000.
There are many resources that list local , regional and national ride events. Below is a link to one such resource on the NGW website.
Make plans now to get out and meet some great people who enjoy the same hobby as you.
