Question about 1987 Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing
You mention front and rear wheel bearings have no play, but have you replaced them? I do remember part customers replacing the wheel bearings on the gl1200 at about 10,000 mile intervals because of what you describe. You do not mention the miles on the motorcycle but I think that if you replace the front and rear wheel bearings you will notice a huge difference in how your Gl1200 handles. I do not think it will be necessary to do anything with the final drive bearings. Remember to regrease the spline on the final drive with Moly60 grease before reinstalling the rear wheel. I have replaced the wheel bearings on my GL1000 ( around 125,000 miles) several times and handling always improves.
