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.

SOURCE: i have an 84 honda goldwing aspencade and when it

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.

How to replace valve seals. when cycle is on side stand for a day or two and you start engine it smokes for a few seconds


This has been an issue for ALL Goldwing's (1000, 1100, 1200, 1500, and probably 1800's). It does not hurt anything. If you center stand you cycle it will never happen. but all Goldwing's are known to let out a puff of smoke if left on the side stand. The oil may be leaking past your piston rings and not your stem seals. If you want to change your stem seals you need to put the cylinder on top dead center compression stroke, remove the spark plug, screw in an air hose from your air compressor to pressurize your cylinder, with air pressure hold the valves in place compress the valve springs with a valve spring compressor, remove the parts (washer, cotter keys,and springs), pry off the seal, pop on the new one and reassemble. It is a lot easier living with the puff of smoke, Happy Trails.

I just rebuilt the carbs on my 1982 goldwing interstate and now it is blowing white smoke out of the right side exhaust


Hi, P_cameron001 your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.
