Timing Belt

Post by Mahaflac » Sat Nov 30, 2019 9:07 am



Greetings,

I am new here. Just bought an 83 Goldwing interstate to add to my garage. I have searched the how to forums for GL 1000,1100, and 1200 for how to change the timing belt and cannot find it. Can someone direct me a how to article for this. The belt may be in good shape as the 83 I bought is immaculate but I don’t want to take a chance.

Here's a couple for reference, all models are similar, but different. Use the manual to referee the instructions to your bike. For instance, one states the tensioners are to be set by the springs, the Service Manual I have states to measure the tension of the belt by applying 'XX' pressure and measure the deflection.

Just verify what they say....
