Hello,

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.

Low charging on 85 goldwing fuel injection


The GL1200 Aspencade fuel injection did not come with fuel injection. But a lot of those bikes have been piced togather from outher bikes.

The entire 1200 goldwing line had stator problems. First thing to check is the 3 yellow wires and the connector they have just to the left of the battery. Most people remove that connection and soder it after testing the stator. There is a complete checklist, along with alternative solutions at http://www.gl1200goldwings.com/ If you own a 1200, that is the best self help site for these bikes.

After travelling over 15 miles say 10-20 minutes the bike wont start and yet if left 20 minutes or so will,any suggestions1986 Goldwing Aspencade


Had the same problem on my 1985 GL1200 aspy.
One of the pulse generators had an intermittent error. With time, it became worse. I replace the pulse generator set and problem gone. Pretty difficult to find, especially as I reasoned that 2 cylinders oughtta fire if one pulse generator worked. Wrong assumption. On the 1985, one dead pulse generator means no ignition. So check the spark when it's dead. Did take me a long time to figure out.
Good luck
