Apparently 75 and 80 mph top out issue is a common problem the gl1200 have .......Been told to sync the carbs and a whole mess of other things to check......Not really liking the idea of ripping into my only mode of transportation on a hunch ........I've read through countless forums and not really narrowing it down.....It was a Harley shop trade in.....And it SAT for a while,and when they got room on the floor,they gave it a run through and they ended up taking the carbs off and doing some work.....So I'm kinda lost from there....... Any ideas
Waiting for y'all, bike is only showing 11.6-11.7 volts at road speed. Is it worth the extra money to get a poor boy kit or just replace the stator? Anyone have any ideas?
Picked my 1200 interstate up yesterday. Been in a shed for 8 years so is going to take a bit of sorting. Plan is to get all the mechanical side sorted and give it a good clean. looks presentable enough for this year so not so worried about that. Pleased with it and can't wait to get it on the road.
Okay guys I have a question I was out riding the motorcycle today and stuck in 3rd gear didn't want to up shift or down shift and clutch felt pretty sloppy but I bled the clutch and then I ended up parking it in the garage cuz it wouldn't let me down shift at all I ran it in 3rd gear and finally got where to go up in overdrive but didn't want to chance it this is on a 84 Honda Goldwing 1200 aspencade
opssssss,ma parlate tutti inglese,io no......Grazie per hai preso nel gruppo, mi sono iscritto da voi perché anche io da pochi giorni ho una Honda Goldwing 1200 del 1984 e per lei vi chiedo se qualcuno può aiutarmi e indicarmi come fare per trovare un parabrezza più alto di quello che c'è di base,Grazie
Ok, so did the spring maintenance on my 87 Interstate. Changed oil and now have the filter leaking like a sieve. It was a K&N that I bought last year.
First time with cartridge filter, did I miss something??? Replaced the O rings where they were supposed to go. But they didn't seen right. Possible the filter kit was crap?
looking for bottom section that fits from side to side on bottom of 1984 gl1200 standard also genuine original rad grill
The wife and I are planning a trip from northeast Oklahoma to Colorado next June. We're planning for a full week and will need to pack accordingly.
I'm looking into trailers and hitches for my '87 aspencade and am wondering if anyone has some knowledge of where to get set up without breaking the bank.
I need help guys.. And its for my 89 gl1500 not my gl 1200.... My bike is only putting out 11 volts at the battery... Is it my alternator? Will replacing it fix it especially if I use an 85 amp alternator? Thanks
For sale or trade. HAS BEEN IN A FLOOD . This 1200 was rebuilt a couple of years ago , New timing belt, front forks rebuilt , new rear shock seals ,we bought a couple parts bikes and used the best of the pieces. The bike was at camp last summer and the river rose and tore down the garage it was in, the bike was turned upside down and moved about 30 feet. I HAVE NOT TRIED TO START IT, Make offer.
Alright family I had been toying with getting rid of my Goldwing but I just can't do it. I have NEVER even ridden it yet. I think I have let a few peoples comments about the older styling punk me out LOL. anyways my problem is I need a rebuild kit for the rear brake caliper. Can you guys make a suggestion where one would find this kit at? This is the only one I found so far https://www.amazon.com/Supply-Brake-Caliper-Rebuil d-32-1159/dp/B001KO2OIQ.... Thanks in advance
I just became a gl1200 owner hopefully I can get her running without too much heartache..
******** FACT NEEDED AND ONLY THE FACTS PLEASE *********
I have put this out here before but I don't remember where, But I will try again. I have (2) GL1200 Aspencade's and I was wondering about some of the things I have been told about going to the "darkside" for 1200's.
I have been told that some can put car tires on theses bikes, but then I have heard you "can't" and then I have been told that the rims have to be treated before putting the car tire on. Now this is what I am wondering about this treatment on the rims. where do I go to get this treatment done if I decide going over. I was under the asumsion that these bike rims could just be put on like normal. I also need to know if it is good to go then I need to know what car tire works best on our 1200's.
But if not I need to know what is fact and what is fiction. Thanks for your help.
Ok guys, Who is going to make vroom vroom noises for me while I sit on her? Who else is going through withdrawals?!

This bike has new pulse generators, newer battery, newer Perelli Route tires (less than 3000 miles), extra lights (front and rear), satellite radio, AM/FM radio with cassette (cassette doesn't work), front and rear speakers, Magellan GPS, cup holders, phone holder, driver's backrest. All together this bike is probably 85-90%. About 58k miles on bike. I also have a new set of timing belts for it, 4 repair manuals, Full Face helmet with Bluetooth, 2 half helmets, saddlebag liners and bike cover. High book on this bike is $2730. Asking $2200. Have clear title in hand. Call or text at 505-360-5063. Located in Huntley, IL. Do not contact me about sending me a cashier's check and having someone else pick it up. Cash only, face to face.
Went to check on my bike today. I've been on the fence about selling it for awhile. She looked good today to me though so I snapped a picture...Lol
Ok I have been suffering from pms (parked motorcycle syndrome). Any pictures of this years ride might help.
Thanks for letting me join this group
I have a 1984 honda goldwing 1200 motor not sure the milage of it but i heard it run not sure what it is worth just dont need it i also have a rear end as well
Can anyone tell me what it should cost to replace the timing belts on a gl1200? Shop and backyard.... Thanks
I need to ask a few question because I have been thinking so I better do this right. as you can see in the pictures I have this trailer and I want to make it into something nice to pull behind one of the bikes. This trailer is being used as a hauler for the 2 bikes I have. The bed is 8X4 from the inside, It also has leaf springs instead of a set of shocks. And I am changing the tires out for thin ones so I can be on the highway. But first I need to find out some specification for this project.
!. How much weight can a normal 1200 pull including I am shooting with 2 passengers.
2. What is the best material I should use for this project
3. I know that most states have a requirement that trailer are under a certain weight before I fall into a different category as for as the tags are concern.
4. Am I leaving something out on this project
Since this is the first one I am doing. I need to know if there is anything else I might be leaving out. Thanks for your input.

I know I might regret asking this but after asking about car tire on our GL1200 and being told it was not a great ideal, I would like to know if anyone has put a CT on their 1200 and what did you have too do to get the rims to work and ride safely, I have been told ( not saying anyone is lying, just trying to get all the information I can) that they won't fit on the rims and the integrity of the rim is not the best for CT( car tires). If this is true then my butt is not getting in that situation, 2 accident are enough to last me the rest of my life time !!! Thanks for y'all honesty!!!
I need an answer I can bring to a tire store and order or pick up, what are the sizes I need for my 84' and the 85' both front and rear, can someone tell me this information, been asking off and on for a few months. thanks
I'm looking for a new look, I dare to be different this guy (Jordan) has Jammed on his Iron Horse..

Does anyone have a naked goldwing for sale?
I need to find out something on this 85', to see if I have a different ave. to save these lights. I was able to get ahold of the original owner I think I am going to be the 2nd or 3rd owner. He told me as of 3 years ago it was running fine, but someone add some extra lights and the stator could not handle it, it would not keep a charge, So what I am needing to find out, am I "screwed" (so to speak) and the lights have to come off. I am wondering if it isn't the way these extra lights are wired crappy and if I get someone to wire it to the switches that are mounted above the master cylinder, if this would make it work right, I guess the curb lights are OEM and the fog lights or am I wrong and they are OEM TOO, and the rear bar are the extra's he was talking about.. Thanks for y'all advise

I'm currently starting to put together a tent trailer build for my LTD. I've never had the chance to look at other trailers to see what they have for suspension on them. If anyone has any pictures they could share with me it would be much appreciated!
So a Goldwing was not in my head when we decided to do a cheap bike challenge. From Phoenix buying bikes for no more than $1000 and riding to California and back. I have had many bikes in the past and before this one still have six mainly Triumph 1050's and Kawasaki KLR 650's. So getting a Goldwing was totally new to me. I have a lot of thoughts about it and also some worries that you might be able to help me with.
Its a 1986 Aspencade with 101k on it. Everything works although i haven't figured out the cb radio but not really necessary. I am sure it isn't in the best of conditions but apart from the seat and the right foot board being broken everything else is goodish.
So my initial thoughts... its very very heavy but ok when you get out the parking lot. Its a blast riding along with the stereo blasting and i could ride all day which is nice compared to some of the more racy bikes i have had.
So to some concerns. Minor, the screen at night is not as clear as i would like. I guess this is just age?
The shaft drive clunks a bit when you let the clutch out in first. Is this at all normal or as i suspect it has been abused and needs work. So the question is having changed the gear oil will it do anything dangerous or will i have advanced warning? I cannot fix it for this challenge.
The cam belts are unknown as to their age etc. i have found some receipts but nothing about the belts. I think i can change them and it looks like you dont get any warning before they go. Any advice would be helpful.
Tires. The front is ok, the back is almost gone. Is the bike supposed to be scary on lines and grooves in the road? Usually this would be tires but since it is such a big bike i was wondering if it was just something i have to get used to.
Otherwise i am pleasantly surprised at how much i like it and i really think i could even buy a newer one in the future. Got to get this trip sorted first.
If anyone is in Phoenix, it would be good to hear from you. Thanks
Was able to get out for a 40 minute ride today. Fuel stabilizer in the tank, topped up with fresh fuel. Nice to get out and get it up to operating temperature. Dry roads, 40 degrees! :-) Fort Erie, ON, Canada. Snow all but gone for now :-) Who knows what next week will bring.
Before the ride, bike sat for about a month, when I started today, got a little bit of smoke (that appeared to look like exhaust) come up from left side. Looked for exhaust leak, got down there and smoke smelled electrical. Immediately shut down. Let sit for a few minutes and started again. No smoke and ran fine the whole time. Read on one thread that it could be brush dust burning in starter. Any ideas group? Wire connection to starter tight and was not hot.
Thought this was kinda cool
****************** Inquiring Minds Need To Know ***********************
I am I need of some advise on which is a better way to go on this issue, I have been looking at seat covers that they advertise on eBay for our big bikes, compare to a interior up holstering company. These covers are a fraction of the cost of what these company charges the one I went to since they have done other work for a 82' GL1100 Aspencade for about $150, Now they want $250 for the seat alone and another $90 for the back rest but not the arm rest so I would have close to $500 just for a dang seat that was not going to be that comfortable after a certain amount of distance, and that is where the problem lies. I came to you guys a few months ago about this very problem and y'all told me to look for gel pads and sheep fur, I did and it is working but only after a certain amount of distance (about 100 miles) then I get to the point I can't get off the bike or muchless walk after I do get off. I had "total" hip replacement a few years ago 2008-2010 and it get to the point I get cramps after a few hours of riding. So I thought of looking for a seat bike enough for just myself (make the bike a one seater, like a motor cop and Harley Davidson the older models), But I am confused on how to do this. So this is why I am coming to those who are living our lives riding and working on our types of motorcycle we love, So please can y'all give me a direction to go in saving my BUTT !!!!! Thanks for your help before I know y'all can point me in another direction that will work !!!! God Bless Y'all Here are the 84' and 85 GL 1200 I am talking about. Y'all have a safe New YEAR !!!

I would like to use synthetic oil. There's no problem with doing that right?

Hallo zusammen, suche für meine 1200 interstade eine leuchtweitenregulierung. Hier in Deutschland gibt es keine mehr.
Iso.....looking for a comfortable after market seat for 1986 1200...have lots of parts to trade...lets see what's out there.
I was thinking about this when I saw this add about a radio bezel for 1200's. I was wondering if their is a CD/AM/FM radio out there that is compatible with these bikes and it will allow all of the part will still work, intercom and mb3 player. If so can someone give me a route to find it. Yeah, I can go put any kind of player that will fit and play but I want to be able to still use the intercom with it. thanks
The radio bezel has a universal fit to work on most aftermarket radios. Drilling is required to mount and hardware included. Measurements...
Well I almost hit a deer. If I would have put my foot out could have kicked it.
does anyone know if there is a slide in replacement for the radio that has cd player instead of cassette

I have an 86 gl aspencade SE-I limited edition and it will run if I get jumped off as long as I take off at a high rate of speed but if I stop or slow down it dies... is there a chance that it's the battery instead of the stator or am I looking at it probably being the stator also, if it is the stator does anyone know how/where to find the alternator conversion kit?
