Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
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.
