PARTS AND ADVICE FOR YOUR 'OLDEN GOLDIE'
An online source dedicated to Honda's amazing four cylinder Goldwings!
Well, maybe not all that horrible but I guarantee that the buttons are certainly crazed a bit, discoloured more than a bit and generally ruining the look of the carb set, even if they are not actually leaking, just like the one here.
These are not just for cosmetic reasons but if the tops are cracked, they will cause running problems. See this Tech Tip for explanation.
Obviously, badly broken ones have to be replaced.
Doing a proper replacement for cracked tops is a far better option than covering with epoxy or sticking coins on top!
Help is at hand. Well known carburettor guru Pistol Pete, developed his new OEM look carburettor buttons to your GL1000 carburettor tops, which I now have the sole supply
If you wish me to polish the vacuum caps, this will be done before fitting the buttons.
The cost for polishing a set of four is $45
If you are polishing them yourself, please do this before sending them.
The new buttons should be treated with some care as, a standard of PP practice, they are treated with a UV protectant and it can be removed with aggressive polishing or for that matter scrub cleaning the caps.
To get this service, email me first to arrange a date.
Remove the slides and mark each slide and respective cap with a Magic Marker or similar on the inside.
Carefully wrap the tops only, in bubble wrap or similar, pack them securely and send to the Glasgow UK address in the 'Get Help' page.
Please include a note of: name, address, email, phone and PayPal account
Remember: If doing the polishing yourself, do it before sending them.
Once they are finished you will receive a Paypal invoice. You do NOT need to have a Paypal account to be able to pay this, only a credit or debit card.

Email from a satisfied customer:
Just to say tops arrived and thank you. Really pleased with the result.
After the legend Pistol Pete's passing on, I purchased all remaining stock of his GL1000 carb buttons. There is enough to do a considerable number of sets, but there is NOT an infinite quantity.
So I advise that you don't hesitate to get them done later. They may well be gone by then!
