Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing
The bike wont open up its like its only got half a throtle
Seafoam...Joke... or advertisment... this web site wasted my time

Firstly the 85 ltd doesnt have carbs its electronic fuel injection.
Could be the throttle postition sensor, vaccum lines running to the efi, or the banks need to be balanced. Simplest thing to check first is that your throttle cable is acutally pulling the throttle body wide open. Decarbonizeing the throttle body may help also. and I run can of sea foam thru my ltd about once every two months to keep injectors etc clean.

Try the easy method first. Run some seafoam through the carbs. Follow directions for mixing it into the gas.
If that doesn't work to fix it, it is time to pull the carbs and clean them meticulously. Don't be surprized if you have to rebuild them or replace a few parts. This could cost you up to $250 per carb.
Or it might cost you the price of a can of carb cleaner. If you have the money, or are too skittish have a pro do the cleaning. If you have a clue and like a challenge, there are many websites that explain to you how to clean your carbs.
