Question about 2001 Honda GL 1800 Gold Wing
Posted by Anonymous on
this could be a number of things
from a leaking radiator or a leaking inlet manifold to warped heads or at the worst cracked cylinder liners
check the colour of the oil to start with
if it is a grey sludge texture then you have water mixing with your oil
as a matter of urgency
you need to have this looked at in a workshop for full diagnosis
a full compression test would diagnose a warped head or a cracked cylinder liner
get them to also check the cooling system for a blockage

(Better1969) is correct. I just bought a 1983 Aspencade and there was no sound to my speakers. The gentleman I bought the bike from supplied new speakers but I quickly ruled that out. There are 3 fuse links behind the left turn signal in the fairing. 1 was a 1 amp, 1 was a 2 amp and the blown fuse was a 5 amp. I didn't have a 5 amp so I put a 2 amp in its place. So far the sound is still working but my FM radio reception is very poor.

Fork oil capacity should be 10.9 oz in the left, and 10.8 oz right. Lower pinch bolt torque is 40 ft-lb and upper is 8 ft-lb. The steering stem nut is 72 ft-lb and the steering stem adjustment nut is 17 f-lb.

3.9 US quarts of oil is the capacity. I have not had any trouble just pouring in the full 4 quarts. You should only use a JASO MA motorcycle oil 10w-40 or 20w-50 depending on outside temperature. Any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label should not be used they will shorten wet clutch and gear life. I highly recommend synthetic oil (Amsoil , Mobil 1 [motorcycle}, etc.)they will make the bike run cooler and shift more easily. Synthetic hypoid in the final drive will reduce friction and make it run cooler and last longer too.
