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.

How do you check the oil level on a 1996 gl1500 goldwing


Warm up engine while on center stand. Shut engine off and let set for a few minutes. Then unscrew the dipstick and pull it out and wipe it off with clean towel. Replace dip stick but do not screw it in but firmly seat it with you fingers. Oil level needs to be between the two marks.

Just bought 1982 gl 1100 goldwing and wantto know which mark on dip stick is max. , lots of dots and notches, how many inches high ?


HI YOU WILL HAVE A LOWER MARK, THIS REPRESENTS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF OIL YOU SHOULD HAVE IN THE ENGINE, AN UPPER MARK WHICH REPRESENTS THE MAX AMOUNT OF OIL, ALL THE SPACE IN BETWEEN IS AN ACEPTABLE AMOUNT OF OIL, THIS IS THE AREA YOU DESCRIBE AS HAVING DOTS, REMEMBER THIS IS A DIPSTICK AND THE OIL LEVEL SHOULD BE READ WHEN THE DIPSTICK IS RESTING ON TOP AND NOT SCREWED INTO THE THREADED HOLE WITH THE MACHINE ON A LEVEL FOOTING
