I believe that long one goes on the extreme left side, but it's easy enough to check. Just put them back in place and see if there's a gap under the bolt head when you gently tighten it.

To separate the covers you may need to smack them with a rubber hammer or use a hook at the bolt holes to pry them off and the last recourse is to gently push a screwdriver into the gap between the iner and outer covers at the bottom of the coverand gently pry the covers off. Hopefully you won't damage the gasket but if you do you can always touch it up with RTV silicone. This is not a high pressure gasket it just basically keeps out dust and water.

hi vic, this might be added to the "how to" for the goldwing owners. on the bottom

of the covers there are slots that you easily access to gently pry out the covers.

the bolt belongs on the extreme left side [drivers] facing forward i pulled the covers

and the belts

are very loose approx 1 inch of play [no good] i think what happens is 1 side is tight

when the firing time is reached [in phase] and the other loose until you come around

180deg to fire the other that is why you tighten left and right at different engine

times i.e. valves high valves low. so when i get my new ordered belts will replace

again thanks for your time and help..

hi, sometimes the timing covers can be very stubborn to remove, but on the bottom

of each

there is a slot and gentle tapping with a rubber mallet and voila off they come. no

pain.

thx scot.

Sounds like you got to it just in time Scot. Much longer and you might have been replacing valves also if the timing belts broke.

Sounds like you found a good use for those ventilationslots at the bottom.

Hoping all goes well for you at the belt change.

hi vic, replaced my belts the other day. on the tension. i made them both about 1/8 in
[left right] order. spun the engine by hand 12 or more times [coward] no
hitting of metal fired her up and voila zoom zoom.. had to re-adjust the the idle since
it needed more gas when cold. so do you think 1/8 inch up and down is too tight for
the belt tension??

thx scot

1/8" to 3/16" slack is exactly what the Honda manual calls for. Sounds like you did a good job scot.

Enjoy the ride.

Octane, [suP]AWSOME pics, I also assume this is the same for a 1985 1200. ??[/suP]

It should be about the same, but toss out the part numbers that Octane gave. The 1200 uses different belts, posibly different idler pully's, but Mother Honda should have the right part numbers.

Might I ask, where is the bolt that shows the timing marks in the engine? I'm slowly stripping my wing down to find all the good stuff. I guess all I have to do is find the hole, find the parts, and find my head and this job is done!

Mind you, I know everything about nothing and nothing about everything.
