Post by rockyhayes »

Hi guys,

I'm looking for Carb Code info for GL1200 - Like this info for GL1000 provided over at Randakk's. Anybody know where to point me?

I do not know that I have ever seen one. Probably in the Honda shop manual if anywhere?? The only 1200 manual I have is Haynes and it is not in there.

As I continue to sleuth the topic online, I found this - from SABER CYCLE of all places!

GL1100 carburetor ID can be found on the left side of the carburetor body. Carb IDs: VB48A and VB48C.
GL1200 carburetor ID is found on the inside of the carburetor bodies. Carb IDs: VD53A, VD53B, VD53C and VD53D, as well as California VD55A, VD55B, VD55C and VD55D.
GL1500 carburetor ID is stamped on the carburetor bodies. Carb IDs: 88-91: VD GEA-B, GFA-B, GOA-A/B/C, GRA-A/B/C, GWA-A, GYA-A, GYB-A, GWC-A, GYC-A; 92-94: VD GWE-A, GYD-A, GWF-A, GYE-A; 95-98: VD GWE-B/C/D, GYD-B/C, GWF-B, GYE-B, GWE-B/C, GYE-B

For the GL1200 evidently, the A is for 1984, B for 1985, etc...


And I found this, from CMSNL:
