Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing
Every few minutes when the bike is off it makes a little noise like an small electrical motor running. could it be a compressor leak? is this normal?
You already know that it persists. No electric motor will run with the battery disconnected. That is a given. What you need to do is find the motor and find out why it is getting power when it shouldn't. There are 3 possibilities; fuel pump, air pump and cooling fan. Chances are the ignition switch is bad and providing power to the electric motor even when the bike is turned off.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, or it says "Not Available", the part is not in stock.
In the event the part is shown as unavailable, Google " motorcycle salvage honda " and Google " Vintage motorcycle parts ". Chances are you can find what you need there.
