1985 Goldwing, 1 cylinder is popping at idle when bike is cold

Hi, Anonymous if your carburetor/exhaust is:
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.
BACKFIRING is usually caused by a sticky/tight intake valve or a timing issue, 180 degrees out or cam chain off 1or 2 teeth.

1993 honda goldwing smokes on start up

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.

1985 honda goldwing 1200 oil seems to be leaking from timing belt cover thinking maybe crank shaft gasget?

Most likely it is a valve cover gasket. There is a cam seal underneath the cam belt timing gear that is easy to replace (I have replaced two of those when the same leak appeared.The seal is part #28. Worst case scenario the crankshaft seal has begun to leak. It is easily replaced once you have taken off the covers, belts, and center belt sprockets. The seal is part #13

Noise when bike is off, Air compressor?

If you cut the bike off using the kill switch, but left the ignition key turned on, the electric cooling fan behind the radiator will sometimes come on for a little while. Turning off the ignition key will stop the fan.
