Re: no spark

The 'Kill' switch prevents spark, think corrosion of contacts in switch.

It's a fun part to remove & install (not)! The procedure is covered in the Honda service manual, do you have?

Re: Arai Signet-X Helmet

Don't know much of anything about these two; Icon and LS2; but found that they have the long oval shape also. Been using the Signet for I don't remember, very comfortable! I wonder what replaced the RX-Q (different shape)?

Re: GL1200 dies suddenly

When it dies.......
Do you loose any other electrical function, or is everything working?
Do you intermittently use the 'kill' switch?
If it it related to the pulse generators, it typically is a heat related failure.

Re: Timing belt replacement gone bad

Could be, only way to know is start taking it apart. If the belts slipped time than the pistons and valves may have met up with each other.

Re: cupped tire

Not sure what is called cupping, do you have a pic? I did have a front tire wear out in a few thousand miles from sliding the front end on lots of high speed corners. The trailing edge of a tread block was taller than the rest of the block. According to the Dunlop rep. at a rally, stated that the re...

Re: timing belt tension

See this topic http://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9774 on methods etc, it's on a 1500 so some things won't be applicable. The specification for how many lbs. of deflection evidently is the same for the 1200 and 1500. The deflection amount is not the same, 1200 deflection is 3-5 mm (p...

Re: radio noise supressor???

There is a noise filter, tied into the voltage regulator wiring (info in the 'charging section' of the Honda Service manual). I'd first check that you have noise suppression plugs and wires, if not, start there

Re: How hot does it have to be before you won't ride?

I always ride in a mesh jacket with armor and don't know how hot is too hot. Iv'e ridden in 110F+, didn't like it, but I'd do it again if I needed to. Summer in Texas means its going to be hot, you just deal with it (Pink Floyd just came to mind). I'm retired and don't have to be anywhere most of th...

Re: Ignition control module

Coils from 1000 and 1100 are not the same as the 1200. I've read of people replacing the 1200 coils with 1500 coils. Don't know if that's the problem or not but I'd search for coil replacement threads.

Re: Inaccurate Tachometer

Possibly a bad electrical connection from the coils to the tach. Follow the wires and clean/check all connections for corrosion, same for the ground circuit. If not it will be the meter that's the problem. I think that circuit goes through the 'Kill' switch, and may have to clean its connections als...

I thought I had notes about the hose lengths but I can't find them. I worked with Jim Miller of HEL USA to get the proper sizes. Jim had the proper length sent after the first order came in incorrect. You might want to contact him and see if he can advise you. Phone 877-416-0969; email jim@moto-heav...

Re: 1986 Goldwing GL1200 Aspencade

You should also check the 'Kill' switch function. Mine did similar and wound up the contacts on the switch needed cleaning.

Re: intercom system

Pick your poison as to the type you want, pro and con for both. You need a headset (who you use will determine what all you might need). Generally the interface cord mates between the bike & the helmet. Adjust the setting to the sound levels you need and the VOX level to cut down background noise.

Re: Please tell who or what made you buy a Goldwing

I'd been admiring Wings since the 1100. Rider magazine convinced me I had to have a Wing with the 1200 evaluations. So about 30 years ago I bought mine, it's been so good I kept it. As the wife says it's part of the family now, not for sale!
