Check all fuses, check stator, and wiring from stator. Probably a bad stator.

The alternator is not charging, even if it's new, you probably have a fuse that is blown. Look in the fuse panel under the hood where the big fusible link style fuses are held. I think you'll find that one of the larger fuses in this panel is bad. They are hard to see sometimes, a multimeter may be needed to check them.

Honda 1985 1200 Gold Wing

First have the battery(s) tested. A number of car parts places will do it free. The test must be under load. Voltage may be fine in a discharged battery. In a 1985 Gold Wing the problem may be in the ignition switch. have the switch checked out.

I found the answer on Wiki Answers.

It says :

right 360 c.c. SAE 10

I wouldn't use sae 10 however, Honda suggests 5w fork oil. Just changed the fork seals on mine.
