It can be done with the engine in but it's tough. Once your in you have to remove some of the disks before you can pull the basket and install the same.

There is a thread somewhere on the process..small hands help!!! ask over at NGW or Saunders.

Could be I saw all this for a 1000 I am assuming the 1100 is the same maybe not???
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,

Its not difficult you need the correct tools such as socket spanners with extensions to get the rear cover off. Put the bike on the side stand not the centre stand as it gets in the way. new gasket required though and be VERY careful tightening up the clutch spider bolts as at least one will be longer than the others depending on the model of wing you have. The spider which presses on to the clutch springs is aluminium and needs to be tightened evenly. When assembled ajust the clutch as per the book and only use the cable adjuster to take up cable slack.

Hi Moffat i will call you when you are here i had a gl1100 30 years ago and only just bought this 1981 interstate a few months ago i have bought new clucth plate but it is only for in case i need to fit them.the main thing that i am worry about at about 120km there is a thumping nose that sounds like it is coming from the drive train some where and no one here can tell me what it is,i think it is the final drive yock in the back which i also can not get here.If you know any thing about the drive train it would help me very much other than that the bike goes very well and in good nic.
thanks
rory

Could be the shock absorber bushes (Cush bushes) in the final drive unit or the spring unit on the final drive spring whcih is in the engine rear casing unit. If you have a problem with the clutch have a look at the oil pump suction strainer which catches the bits from the clutch.

Have you downloaded the Maintenance and spare parts manuals from this site yet. The Goldwing is not a complicated bike transmission wise and other Honda bikes have shaft drives and cush bushes in the rear wheel . These bushes are recommended to be replaced by the HONDA dealer in the Haynes Manual. I have personally never had to change them myself.
The output shock absorber device and its spring are within the rear case about where your right ankle is when riding the bike
