Center stand the motorcycle.First place your pan under the oil filter cover under the front right corner of the machine. Using a six point socket loosen the filter cover bolt and remove the cover. Dump out the oil in the cover being careful to save the spring and the washer that is stuck to the filter.Many Goldwings have lost there washer in a previous oil change , if lost replace the washer. If you desire change the o-ring on the bolt and the o-ring on the cover. Put the bolt back into the cover and place the spring first over the bolt, then the washer, then the filter , so the spring is pushing the filter against the engine. Put the new filter onto the motorcycle and snug up the cover bolt just enough so the oil wont leak out. Do Not Over Tighten The Cover Bolt. Now place the pan under the right rear corner of the motor. You will find a horizontal bolt near the bottom right rear corner of the main block of the motor. It will have an aluminum or copper sealing washer. Take off the bolt and let the oil drain out. When the oil is finished draining , put the bolt back in with a new sealing washer , if needed , and snug up the bolt just enough so that it does not leak or come out. Again do not over tighten the bolt. Now pour in the new oil through the dipstick hole. Be sure you use JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. You will need 4 quarts but you may have a partial quart left over. The quantity is something between 3.4 and 4 quarts. Run the bike and double check the oil level with your dipstick so you do not over fill.

    what happens if you put too much oil in the bike

    You could cause a pressure build up that would pop out a seal out or break a gasket both causing a leak. The extra oil might blow out the crankcase breather into the air cleaner and foul it with oil. You should be able to loosen the oil drain plug, place a bucket under the drain, unscrew the plug by hand and allow some oil to drain into the bucket while holding the plug over the drain hole. When the extra oil is out, screw the drain plug back in and tighten it. This will allow you to remove enough oil to get the correct level. if the oil smells of gas you will have to change all the oil. You may also have to clean the carburetors if they are dirty and causing the floats to stick and contaminate the oil. Always turn your fuel petcock to the off position when not riding so you do not contaminate the oil with petrol. Hope this helps.

Gas in my oil , 1982 1100 gl goldwing aspencade. what can I do


sure its oil? It might be filthy gas or something. If theres a strong smell of gas it can mean many things. some being costly, some being simple. if you left the gas valve on, you probably flooded the engine. youll have to let the fuel evaporate, or turn it over with the killswitch on to pump out the excess fuel. you might have to change some spark plugs if you did this. If its something else, it could be carbeurator problems or problems with the rings. If its really oil leaking out, then somethings wrong.

Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing Motorcycle Where is the vin number on the 1200 1984 aspencade goldwing


I am TOLD that: Most motorcycle have the vin number on the steering head (that is located behind the headlight or fairing. If it has a fairing it will be hard to see. If the frame is the original there should be a sticker or tag located there on one side with the numbers on it and stamped on the frame on the other side. All HONDA goldwings model are located there..
I can't vouch for this being true on the Goldwing, but it sounds convincing
