SOURCE: 1977 honda goldwing rear tire removal never had

Get a service manual.
there are two ways to go. both time consuming and of moderate difficulty.
My favorite is to remove the trunk, saddlebags, rear fender as a unit. Then the tire is in the open to work on. Not an easy job.

SOURCE: how to replace a headlamp on a 1985 honda goldwing


I see that your question is six months old and you probably have had it answered already. I will post the proper procedure for you just in case no one has helped you.

To remove the Headlight assembly, you will need to do the following;

1) Rotate the rear view mirrors 90 degrees so that the mirrors are facing up and remove the bolts holding the mirrors on - you will need to remove both mirrors.
2) Remove the windshield trim panel by placing a shop cloth over the slot between the windshield and the headlight unit. Insert a wide flat blade screwdriver into the slot and very CAREFULLY lift up on the screwdriver. This will unhook the latch from the holder on the fairing. You now should be able to remove the trim panel.
3) Remove the louver trim panel below the headlight lens. This will give you access to the bolts holding the lower part of the headlight assembly (remove them and pull the headlight assembly forward and slightly out of the front fairing).

NOTE: there are screws holding the headlight adjustment cable mechanism to the headlight case - these will have to be removed to take the entire assembly out. Next disconnect the headlight connector from the headlight lens unit and you're done with the removal process.

Install in reverse order.

Hope this helps.

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

My car has a leaky water pump and the mechanic said they have to replace the timimg belt as well i have a 1995 honda accord v6 engine with over 200 and something miles

yes, you should have the timing belt changed every 80,000 mi. on a Honda. You got your use out the one from the factory, if that's how long you've owned your car.

A leaky water pump is common on Hondas with that much mileage.

When it rains it pours.

Don't worry, timing belts don't cost that much to replace. really they don't.
