Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing
Posted by Anonymous on
That's normal. Think about this, you park your bile on the side stand. Oil from the crank case makes it's way to the piston rings. A small amount of oil makes it way past the rings to the combustion chamber. This in its self is not an indicator of a bad engine since the goldwing engine is a flat opposed engine and is usually leaned to the left on the sidestand.

SOURCE: 1981 honda goldwing wont start
while trying to start an engine, and only the solenoid clicks, there are these 3 things- no juice from the battery, starter corroded contacts(the big cables) or starter is shot. so first make sure the battery is charged, next make sure the cable mounts from battery to starter are clean(no rust), if that is all good and doesnt start , remove starter and have it tested.

To avoid this problem or minimize it, when you put the bike on the side stand, put a small piece if 2x6 lumber under the side stand. This will help. They all have this problem.

The Goldwings are notorious for doing this. It isn't the rings that is letting the oil bypass, it is the valve stem seals. They seep oil in the cylinder and when the engine starts it smokes to burn off the oil that is leaked in. If it were the piston rings it would not stop smoking after it warms up. The only fix is to put in new valve stem seals. Most will let it go until it becomes enough of a nuisance to where they will replace the seals.
