Valve Settings

Postby ricklytle50 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 1:56 pm



I bought a 1984 1200 Gold Wing Aspencade trike. It needs TLC and I have it pretty much ready to ride but need information on the valve settings. If someone could give me the information I would surely appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for any help.

The 1200 uses pre-set hydraulic lifters.
Adjustments are seldom ever required.eg,rebuilding the heads or perhaps for extreme mileage(150k+).
Just sea foam treat the oil once in a while.if there's no loud valve ticking,don't worry about it.Time is better spent on replacing the timing belts.

Thanks for the help. BTW your bike is the same color as ours, only we have the trike.
