Question about 1984 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
If three of the four spark plugs are firing good you can eliminate the coils. Most likely if only one plug is fouling with oil it is a leaking valve seal or a broken ring. To determine which is the problem, remove all four spark plugs and complete a compression test of each cylinder. Write down the results to compare with the next step. Each cylinder should be within ten percent of the others, Now, squirt about a tablespoon amount of oil in each cylinder. If there was low compression on the #2 cylinder and the compression increases substantially with the oil inserted you have a broken ring. If there is low to no compression on the #2 cylinder you have a burnt valve. If the compression does not increase and the spark plug fouls with oil you have a bad valve stem seal.
