1992 Goldwing 1500 Coolant Leak

Postby ZXDavid » Fri Sep 09, 2011 9:53 pm



I have a coolant leak on the left side of the engine. I can pull the little plastic chrome cover off and there is coolant on top of the left side of the engine and of course its blowing back and running down the rear of the cylinder head and valve cover. Its looks like I may have to do some serious panel removal to locate the source. Any suggestions? By the way if it matters it is a trike.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
A good way to find a leak is with spray powder and a good strong flashlight.
Clean the area where you suspect the leak/leaks are coming from, spray the powder on these areas run the trike and check the powder, ad it would be the color of the coolant.

Is it overheating? Check the radiator cap, it could be loose or bad, Either way it would allow for overflow on the left. Only takes removal of the trim in fork opening to check.

Oh man I got big trouble! I believe it is leaking from around a fitting that is corroded under the intake manifold. Looks like a nightmare job. Dealer says $700.00 labor but they dont work on bikes over 15 years old. I will have to attempt the repair myself. The dealer told me its not a fun job.
