Replace the main jet by unscrewing the jet fitting from the carburetor.


Jet_1.jpg

Using a standard screw driver, unscrew the old jet from the back of the jet fitting and replace with the jet from the kit. Screw the jet fitting back into the carburetor.

Turn off the petcock.

Disonnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs on both sides of the Goldwing and secure them out of your way.


plug_wires.jpg

Open the tank doors and remove the tool kit to expose the air box wing nut.


air_box_01.jpg

Remove the wing nut and airbox cover to expose the air filter.


air_box_02.jpg

Remove your Goldwings seat to expose the rear tank bolt and remove it.


tank_bolt_01.jpg

Remove the left side and right side tank bolts.


tank_bolt_01.jpg

Remove the tank cover by pulling the sides away from each other and wiggling the tank off the Goldwing.

Looking down into the airbox, you will see two bolts holding it in. Remove these bolts.


air_box_03.jpg

Grab the air box cover bracket and wiggle it while pulling to remove it.


air_box_04.jpg

Disconnect the left side air box hose at the splice.


air_box_05.jpg


air_box_06.jpg

Disconnect the right side air box at the splice.


air_box_07.jpg


air_box_08.jpg

Set aside.


air_box_09.jpg

Remove the distributor guards from both the right side and left side of the Goldwing.


distrib_guard_01.jpg


distrib_guard_02.jpg

Using a 10MM socket wrench, remove the left side right angle manifold intakes.


intakes_01.jpg

Carefully clean the cylinder opening and then stuff a clean rag in it to prevent debris from falling in. Cover the manifold openings with duct tape for preservation.


intakes_02.jpg

Do the same for the opposite side. After done, the manifold will lay on the the engine.


intakes_03.jpg

Disconnect the fuel hose from the fuel pump.


fuel_hose_01.jpg

Disconnect the vent hose from the carburetor.


vent_hose_01.jpg

Disconnect the throttle pull cable by turning the the cable wheel with your finger till there is enough slack to remove the cable end.


throttle_cable_01.jpg


throttle_cable_02.jpg

Remove the throttle pull cable bracket.


throttle_cable_03.jpg

Now repeat for the throttle push cable.

Remove the choke cable.

On the right side of the bike, remove the air break valve covers and springs.


air_break_valve_covers_r_01.jpg

Do not lose the springs unless you intend to throw out the old carbs.


air_break_valve_covers_r_02.jpg

From the left side of the bike tilt the right side of  the carbs/manifold down and stat to wiggle it out. This will take quite a bit of maneuvering so don't get discouraged.


remove_01.jpg

Once out, you will see there is a lot of empty space.


remove_02.jpg

Installation:

Take the right side intakes and remove the OEM clamps and replce them with two of the provided 2 inch clamps from the hardware kit.


intakes_04.jpg

Re-install the intakes on the right side of the bike making sure to line up the clamps screw driver socket for easy access.

NOTE: Be sure to remove the rags you had in the cylincer holes first!


intakes_05.jpg

From the left side of the Goldwing, insert the manifold into the right side intakes.

NOTE: Make sure the cable bracket of the manifold is pointed towards the rear of the Goldwing.


manifold_01.jpg

Install the intakes on the right side of the Goldwing while insertiung the manifold into them.


manifold_02.jpg


manifold_03.jpg

Take the gasket from the hardware kit and install on the carburetor.


gasket_01.jpg

Lay the throttle cable out over the gas cap and seat mount.


throttle_cable_04.jpg

Lay the carburetor with the throttle arm to the right side of the Goldwing on the seat mount. Feed the throttle cable through the throttle arm.


throttle_cable_05.jpg

Take the 1.2 inch bolt and lock nut and place the locknut inside the "U" of the throttle arm. It will be very tight. Make sure the throttle cable is between the locknut and the bottom of the "U". Insert the screw and tighten.


throttle_cable_06.jpg

Put the carb assembly in the manifold bracket making sure the gasket stays in place and the throttle arm is on the right side of the Goldwing.


carb_01.jpg

Mount the throttle cable to the throttle cable bracket on the manifold. You will most likely have to run the lock system all the way to the back,


throttle_cable_07.jpg

Use the two nuts from the hardware kit to bolt the carburetor to the manifold.


carb_02.jpg

Follow the throttle cable back to the right side of the carburetor bay. You will find an intermediary throttle cable adjuster. Adjust this lock nut till you have enough play in the cable that the throttle arm idle tensioner rests against the choke cam.

untaken.jpg

Take the fuel hose from the hardware kit and attach it to the fuel port of the carburetor using one of the small clamps provided in the kit.


fuel_hose_02.jpg

Attach the other end to the outlet of the fuel pump using the second small screw clamp from the hardware kit.


fuel_hose_03.jpg

Attach the large hose from the hardware kit to the engine casing vent. I used the clamps from the old hose since none were provided in the hardware kit.


air_hose_01.jpg

Mount your air filter to the carburetor using a phillips head screw driver. There is a Phillips heas bolt that screws through the filter into the top of the carb as well as a screw clamp that goes around the circumference of the filter throat which slips over the carb throat.

Mount the open end of the engine casing vent hose to the hose port on the underside of the airfilter casing. I used the clamps from the old hose since none were provided in the hardware kit.

Attach the small hose from the hardware kit to the vacuum port of the carburetor.


vacuum_port_01.jpg

Attach the other end of the vacumm to the vacuum port on the Goldwing.

untaken.jpg

Attach the ground wire for the electric choke to any convenient ground point.

untaken.jpg

Attach the power wire to the positive inlet of the fuse block. I had to supply my own power cable as the supplied cable was too short.

untaken.jpg

Tie off the right side airbox hose, throttle pull cable and choke cable so that they are out of the way using the zip ties supplied in the hardware kit.
 
untaken.jpg

Turn on the petcock (fuel cock). Start your bike. If it idles way too fast, kill the motor and adjust the throttle cable for more play. If it does not start at all, check that there isn't too much play in the throttle cable by starting the bike while manually moving the throttle arm.
