How do I change timing belts on a 1200cc Honda Goldwing

Posted by on

    I have begun the process of tearing down, but my 1985 1200cc sure doesn't look like the one in the pics! I'm not normally a stupid or dumb mechanic but your pics and some discriptions just don't seem to be the same!

  • Kenneth G Ryan Jun 01, 2011

    I would strongly suggest you take another look and compare the pics you have with any 1200cc GoldWing. I have two in my garage and trust me the pics you have don't compare. Something is wrong and I didn't plan on paying money to get what I'm sure is a breakdown of an older model, possibly still of the same year.

The only thing usually necessary is to pull a little slack in the carb heater air hose to get enough room to pull the plastic belt cover free. Changing the water pump, timing belts, alternator are much easier.Just be sure to double and triple check the cam alighnment before tightening the tensioners. If you do it right you are spot on. Just be sure to rotate the crank at least twice.--- For complete detail on how to replace the belt and other parts.please click the link below:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/05/how-to-replace-timing-belts-on-1200cc.html ----------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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

Where are the timing marks on a 1200cc Honda Goldwing Interstate? Don't answer if you don't have experience on this as the marks are not where they are on other Honda Goldwing engines.


Let me start by saying i have worked on alot of goldwings and replaced more timing belts on them then i care to say, they are very easy to spot and set, in the front of the motor you have a cover that is in two parts remove that cover after you have off you will see two (2) belts one to each bank. the timing marks or on the pullys and they are hard to miss and are very clear how to set. I'm going to send you a link that will give the micro phish to your bike.
http://fiche.worldofpowersports.com/wps/Honda_OEM/HondaMC.asp?Type=13&A=33&B=5
this link is to world of powersports the have all the micro phish on your bike.
the timing marks on the pulleys will line up the split in the case and should be on the outside of the pulleys (facing away from center)
if yo have the belts off already the timing mark on the center pully has it's own hash mark, set cylinder 1 t.d.c. check marks.
if you need more info please contact me
