For beginners on this, it is better to have a shop manual. Not a bad job but if one has never done it, it is a bit involved.

Not sure what you mean by a slide moving, but it sounds like a carb based issue. Carb balancing needs to happen at idle, like most people know, but ALSO at 2500 or so, actuated by throttle control. Balancing at the higher speed makes your machine run tons better and last longer.

SOURCE: Does the 1992 Honda 1500 Aspencade Gold wing have


Honda did away with Reverse Gear in 1991 dropping 40lbs of weight off the bike. The years that Reverse was available on the Gold Wing were 1988 to 1990 and there is no way to add Reverse to later years.

Sounds to me like you have a leak in your hydraulic clutch system. Your clutch lever will start to feel odd as (1) fluid leaks out, reducing pressure; and (2) less pressure reaches critical areas because pressure over a certain level is squirting fluid out of the system.

Leaks like these are often caused by one of two things: (1) a hydraulic line that has sprung a leak; or (2) a leaking / cracked fluid reservoir on your clutch slave cylinder. I am discounting the possibility that the slave cylinder itself is going bad, as that wouldn't create fluid leaks external to the system.

To troubleshoot your system, top off the fluid reservoir and then squeeze the clutch lever repeatedly while looking closely to see where fluid may be leaking out. MAKE SURE YOU'RE WEARING GLASSES OR PROTECTIVE GOGGLES WHEN YOU DO THIS!! A pinhole leak in a hydraulic line can shoot out a thin but forceful jet of fluid, and that's really nasty stuff to get into your eyes (it's bad enough on your skin or on the painted surfaces of your bike). The leak won't dribble all the time, only when you're applying pressure, which is why you'll need to keep working the clutch lever while you're looking for leaks. The location of the leak will tell you a lot.

Though I can't see your bike, I'm leaning towards the idea that a hose or, more specifically, the metal end of the hose, is leaking fluid under pressure. If this is the case, you should be able to obtain a replacement hose/line from a Honda dealer and swap it out without too much of a bother. If you're in the middle of nowhere and can't get to a Honda dealer, it's also possible that a hose shop could fabricate a custom line for you if you're able to show them your old hose.

On the other hand, if you have a cracked reservoir, you most likely will have to replace the entire clutch actuating assembly (slave cylinder? clutch cylinder?). That part should be relatively exposed--it may be mounted to the handlebars out in plain view; you won't have to mess with the actual clutch inside the transmission. Because of the location where fuel is puddling, though, I think this is less likely than a hose / hose connection problem.

Good luck, and I hope this doesn't spoil your vacation!

Check you kill switch. Changing oil should have nothing to do with starting. Changing fuel filter is recommended. Could be a fuel pump problem. Is fuel pump getting power. Check fuel pump relay and or fuse and find any connector in the wiring that feeds the pump and inspect. Could also be an ignition problem. To bettet answer, I would need more info.
