Hello, do not touch the carburettors they are fine, i am not familiar with the set up on the Honda but from your description its the clutches, i presume it has hydraulic clutch set up since you mention bleeding it, if you have a nice solid feel on the clutch lever than it should be ok but it will not do any harm to give it a quick bleed, hydraulic clutch set ups usually do not have any adjustments but if you can give the lever some free play (only if its adjustable) than it will get you out of trouble, you will need your clutches replaced if you cannot adjust it and there is no air in the system.

I have a 1980 Goldwing that had the same problem. I solved it by replacing the clutch lever and clutch cable. My cable had stretched so far that there was no adjust left for release. Leave the carburetors alone if there is plenty of power and a smooth idle.

1985 honda goldwing 1200 oil seems to be leaking from timing belt cover thinking maybe crank shaft gasget?


Most likely it is a valve cover gasket. There is a cam seal underneath the cam belt timing gear that is easy to replace (I have replaced two of those when the same leak appeared.The seal is part #28. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch18022 Worst case scenario the crankshaft seal has begun to leak. It is easily replaced once you have taken off the covers, belts, and center belt sprockets. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch16246 The seal is part #13 http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch17585

When i pull in the clutch handle the bike does nothing when i put in gear it dies is there a way to ajust it ?


Fill your clutch fluid reservoir with DOT3/4 brake fluid and bleed the hydraulic clutch system. If it will not stay bled and there are no leaks, take apart the clutch slave cylinder, pull out the piston, carefully remove the piston o-ring seal , and clean the corrosion out of the ring groove and reassemble with new seal. Bleed the system again and you should have your clutch back again.

WHERE DO I FIND WHER TO PUT IN FLUID FOR CLUTCH FOR MY 1985 HONDA GOLDWING GL 1200 INTERSTATE?


Dot 3/4 brake fluid is added to the clutch master cylinder on the left handle bar. The left (clutch) handle bar lever is attached to the clutch master cylinder. To add fluid you will have to remove the phillips screws (4 x 12 oval screws) holding the cover on. Be sure to lay plastic over the motorcycle (with a towel or rags over that) to protect the bikes plastic and paint from any DOT 3/4 fluid you may spill during the filling or bleeding process. Caution: brake fluid will brittle and crack expensive Honda plastic.
