I wish I knew what kind of condition the bike was in. If you have no spark I would start with the coils for a loose or corroded connection both negative and possitive. Make sure the battery is good. You may have charged the battery and have 12 volts but if there is a bad cell in the battery and not enough amps your starter may turn but you will not get enough amps for the coils to fire the plugs. When my Intruder battery get a little low my plugs do not fire hot enough and fowls out. The battery is new so when I recharge or keep my trickel charge on I have no problems.

  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.

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. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch18022 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. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch16246 The seal is part #13 http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch17585
