Question about 1983 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing
There is a sight window on the right side of the engine by the brake pedal. It may look brown or black. There is a screw in the window that operates a wiper inside the window. Once the window is clean, you should see an upper and lower level mark. You might want to consider purchasing a dip stick kit from J.C. Whitney. They are available for about $25.
Be sure to put the bike on center stand for oil check.

I have owned two goldwings... 82 and 83... both had that annoying glass window with the wiper in it... stupidest feature on the bike.... but if you want to check your oil, make sure you are on the center stand, give the wiper a couple turns, then take a look...

Yep yep, agreed with JRR. Get the dipstick kit. WIth the oil window, the only REAL way to check your level==drain the oil and measure it, then put it back in. I haven't even ONE single time been able to read my oil level from that annoying window. I've tried, even tried to back light it by shining lights down the filler opening. Too dark to see, and the wiper, after being almost 30 years old doesn't hardly even touch my view window. ,IMHO, the worst design component on this bike.
