Question about 2000 Honda GL 1500 Aspencade Gold Wing

1 Answer

Clunking noise When I first start my recently acquired 1984 Aspencade a clunking noise becomes apparent. The noise seems to be coming from the engine. When the engine rpms are considerably increased the noise is not noticable. The clunking seems to occur when you are in neutral and you gently roll on and off. I've heard some say that on start up this is the nature of 1200's. What is your response to this very limited description?

I have acquired a used aspencade that has been sitting and when I turn on the ignition the fuel pump does not seem to be coming on

Check your fuse box, for blown fusses to the fuel pump, then check your wireing to the fuel pump and see if you are getting any voltage to it ,check with a volt meter if you are then replace the fuel pump.

How do you remove carbs from a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade

This is a gl1200 instructions on engine removal but it also has the section for removing the carbs you can read it online or save it.
Its easier for me to give you the link than doing all the typing i already have it in my own reference files.

My 1984 gl1200 aspincade will not start, my neutral lite will not come on.does the neutral switch in the front engine cover. if that switch is out will it stop the start botton from working

Make sure the engine kill switch in the off position ?
If the neutral switch is malfunctioning it can send a wrong signal which should be countered by pulling the clutch.

Removing engine on Goldwing

Your local Honda dealer might have a friendly mechanic to give you advice, either way you will need a hoist and a couple of small trolly jacks to shift the weight from mounting to mounting to avoid straining plates and fixings. Good Luck! PS There are several sites that offer free downloads of workshop manuals, trawl through these first, - The Yeti

1984 aspencade starts w/choke and revs up, runs smooth. Take off

My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick

How do I remove the false gas tank on a 1984 honda goldwing

You can pick up a complete owners/service manual as well as the parts manual on cd. I got mine for my GL1100, then when I upgraded to my GL1200, I picked up another set from the same person.
Contact Wanda G at I believe she still sells the cd's for around $7.00 including the shipping anywhere in the US.
When I got mine, she included both the owners/service manual and the parts manual. Pretty big to download, at around 200mb.
Manuals are good enough, I just rebuilt my engine, and all 4 carbs and I'm no mechanic.
