Question about Honda GL 1100 Aspencade Gold Wing Motorcycles
There should be no oil leaking from water pump weep hole. There may be a bad seal behind the water pump on the small shaft that drives it or you may have bigger problems like one of the heads has a crack. You would more than likely have antifreeze in the crankcase if that were the case.

There is a sight window on the right side of the engine by the brake pedal. It may look brown or black. There is a screw in the window that operates a wiper inside the window. Once the window is clean, you should see an upper and lower level mark. You might want to consider purchasing a dip stick kit from J.C. Whitney. They are available for about $25.
Be sure to put the bike on center stand for oil check.

you have to take the forks out im afraid. put the bike on a few blocks so you have good height to slide the forks out, take the front wheel off and mudguard. then undo the pinch bolts by the handle bars then twist the forks left and right until they slide downwards and out. then you undo the tops and tip the old oil out. If your going to do all this you may aswell change the fork seals aswell if they havnt been done for a while. Easiest thing to do is get the forks out and then take them to a bike shop and let them do it, saves you loads on labour.

Had the same problem with my GL 1100 I. A rock had kicked up and hit the speedometer cable mount at the fork and split the plastic screw mount. The cable terminus started to back out from the fork. Any way went to Honda spent $12.00 on a new speedometer cable and installed it in about 10 min.

Synthetics work great in Goldwings, but it does need to be a motorcycle oil for wet clutch's. Look for the JASO MA rating for Japanese engines on the bottle. Do not use oils that say ENERGY CONSERVING on the label, they will shorten the life of the gears and wet clutch.
