SOURCE: 2008 Gold Wing 4783 miles:

Three things can cause this. Low tire pressure. A cupped or damaged tire. But most likely loose steering head bearings. If the bearings in the frame neck are not tight enough it can cause shimmys/wobbles/and vibration.Many mechanics fail to adjust the bearings at the 600 mile check up to save time. Some disassembly required. Many times the tool kit has a curved tool with a single tooth for adjusting shocks. If you have one available you can use this to turn the bearing nut on the top of steering neck.

Not sure what you mean by a slide moving, but it sounds like a carb based issue. Carb balancing needs to happen at idle, like most people know, but ALSO at 2500 or so, actuated by throttle control. Balancing at the higher speed makes your machine run tons better and last longer.

SOURCE: Does the 1992 Honda 1500 Aspencade Gold wing have

Hello,

Honda did away with Reverse Gear in 1991 dropping 40lbs of weight off the bike. The years that Reverse was available on the Gold Wing were 1988 to 1990 and there is no way to add Reverse to later years.

Regards,

Oz

Sounds to me like you have a leak in your hydraulic clutch system. Your clutch lever will start to feel odd as (1) fluid leaks out, reducing pressure; and (2) less pressure reaches critical areas because pressure over a certain level is squirting fluid out of the system.

Leaks like these are often caused by one of two things: (1) a hydraulic line that has sprung a leak; or (2) a leaking / cracked fluid reservoir on your clutch slave cylinder. I am discounting the possibility that the slave cylinder itself is going bad, as that wouldn't create fluid leaks external to the system.

To troubleshoot your system, top off the fluid reservoir and then squeeze the clutch lever repeatedly while looking closely to see where fluid may be leaking out. MAKE SURE YOU'RE WEARING GLASSES OR PROTECTIVE GOGGLES WHEN YOU DO THIS!! A pinhole leak in a hydraulic line can shoot out a thin but forceful jet of fluid, and that's really nasty stuff to get into your eyes (it's bad enough on your skin or on the painted surfaces of your bike). The leak won't dribble all the time, only when you're applying pressure, which is why you'll need to keep working the clutch lever while you're looking for leaks. The location of the leak will tell you a lot.

Though I can't see your bike, I'm leaning towards the idea that a hose or, more specifically, the metal end of the hose, is leaking fluid under pressure. If this is the case, you should be able to obtain a replacement hose/line from a Honda dealer and swap it out without too much of a bother. If you're in the middle of nowhere and can't get to a Honda dealer, it's also possible that a hose shop could fabricate a custom line for you if you're able to show them your old hose.

On the other hand, if you have a cracked reservoir, you most likely will have to replace the entire clutch actuating assembly (slave cylinder? clutch cylinder?). That part should be relatively exposed--it may be mounted to the handlebars out in plain view; you won't have to mess with the actual clutch inside the transmission. Because of the location where fuel is puddling, though, I think this is less likely than a hose / hose connection problem.

Good luck, and I hope this doesn't spoil your vacation!

Hi, Ali and the usual suspects are:

2. Engine/ transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.

  1. Origins
    • The Gold Wing Interstate can trace its roots to 1972 when Honda conceived a grand touring motorcycle based on the five- and six-cylinder racing superbikes of the 1960s. The new bikes dubbed the Gold Wing would feature a liquid-cooled four- or six-cylinder engine. In 1975, the Gold Wing GL1000 debuted with a boxer 999 cc four-cylinder engine. A year later, Honda launched the GL1000 Limited Edition, equipped with a chrome radiator, quilt-patterned seat and gold wheels.
    GL1100 Interstate
    • Following much clamoring from Honda enthusiasts, Honda launched the dressed GL1100 Gold Wing Interstate in 1980. It was the top trim level at the time, vs the Standard. Honda more or less copied the aftermarket bolt-on accessories available in motorcycles parts shops. In fact, the fairing, which is the windscreen and fiberglass protection mounted at the front of the bike to protect the rider, was not even a Honda option until the Interstate arrived. Honda now considered the Gold Wing GL1100 a true tourer with its Interstate model. However, many owners were never truly satisfied with the design as Honda focused more on performance than bodywork styling. In 1984, Honda dropped the Standard (unfaired) model altogether, and introduced the GL1200, with a 94-horsepower four-cylinder boxer engine. The GL1200 ceased production in 1987.
    GL1500 Interstate
    • Honda began tinkering with the idea of a larger Gold Wing tourer in 1984 and tested 15 different types of bikes to come with six-cylinder engine displacing 1500 cc. The result was the GL1500 that arrived in 1988. The engine was the boxer six-cylinder engine displacing 1520 cc. However, by 1984, Honda had dropped the Standard and the Interstate was Honda's base trim model under Aspencade and later, the LTD and SE trims. The Interstate's luxury accents disappeared, as Honda did not equip the 1991 models with cruise control or an onboard air suspension compressor. The stereo system was a low-end basic model and the bike did not have a reverse gear like other Honda models. Honda ceased production of the Interstate in 1996.
    GL1500 Interstate Specs
    • The Honda Gold Wing GL1500 Interstate featured a liquid-cooled four-stroke boxer six-cylinder engine with a 2.8-inch bore and 2.5-inch stroke. It had four valves per cylinder and developed 100 horsepower and 110 foot-pounds of torque. A six-speed shaft-driven transmission matched the engine. It rode on an 18-inch front tire and a 16-inch tire in the rear. Stopping power came from dual 11.6-inch front disc brakes with two-piston calipers and a single 12.4-inch rear disc brake with two-piston calipers. The tourer's seat only stood 30.1 inches tall and the frame sat on a 66.5-inch wheelbase. Its dry weight was a hefty 772 lbs. The fuel tank held 6.1 gallons.

My 1989 honda gl 1500 gold wing wont start in cold weather, it cranks over


Mine does the same thing. I put a new gel battery with high cold cranking amps from Advanced Auto Parts. Look to spend 100 bucks. Choke at full choke and it starts right up now. Gold Wings are cold natured. I own 2 and both are. But the battery took care of the cold starts.
