The only common problem [that dealers deny] is front end wobble at slow speeds. Different reports peg it at between 32 and 42 mph - or somewhat near that.

You'll find lots of solutions posted on line.

Loading front tire to 41 psi got rid of most of it for me.

Blown seals suggests you're using your wing for a trail bike or you have some real problems. There could have been an event which caused it once, but if you fixed it, shouldn't repeat.

1998 Honda goldwing front forks rebuild

A little bit of Trans fluid and the seals, flushing the forks and some elbow grease and a shop manual is strongly advised. This is not a simple job but doable. I made a special tool out of PVC pipe for this task also. You really need a shop manual.

84 to 89 1200s goldwings have a pulse generator

1984 models have the PGs at the back of the engine. The engine has to come out to get at them, or I think you can pull the swingarm instead.
From 1985 the PGs are under the timing belt covers. Still not the easiest to get at.

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

I have a 1993 honda goldwing. When i try to pressure up the rear suspension, I hear the air pump working, but the suspension pressure does not increase. can you help me?

You either have a leaking air line , but more likely you have blown a rear shock seal. You can replace the seal yourself. The seals will cost about about $20 per shock and $7 for a bottle of rear shock oil.

Replase seal rear shocks 1982 goldwing still leaks fluid what did i do wrong

Seals can become fish-mouthed (if the seal twisted one one side)you would probably have to do them new again.If the shock was scarified or rusty seals get ruined quickly.How much air pressure is applied can also blow them out if its to much.
