    If you want to have the work done checkout Millenium Technoligies or http://www.mt-llc.com/ This is not a plug just trying to give you a resource that might do the work for you. The problem is the sleeves are not servicable. The sleeve has a coating that is bored from the factory. These guys can either do the work for a price or at the very least give you some really expert options, they do this stuff thousands of times a year. They would be a great resource for the exact methods to achieve excellant results. Hope this helps.

I need to turn idel down


  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.

1984 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing pumping white smoke out the exhaust


Hi, Paul your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

My 1984 honda goldwing gl1200 interstate wont start and it gets fuel and spark.


fuel, fire, timing, and compression. Check those last two.Make sure spark is blue,and that battery is full.If the compression is in question you could temporarily boost it by using oil on top of the piston to make compression higher .
