Okay----first time I have tried to do this-----I've got the timing cover bolts loose but cover seems to be stuck. Am I missing something on removing this and do I need to loosen or remove radiator. Have patience while my Wing and I get to know each other better!!!!

The inboard bolts can be a real SOB to get out due to their length. Usually I have to break the rad loose at the bottom to get them out of the cover. Once they are out of the way the only thing holding it should be the seal. They can create quite a bit of "Sticktion" and often require a good pop with a fist or rubber mallet.

It is on top of the engine. Looking in from the left side behind the carbs just about under the fuel filter.

Pictures and directions are worth a thousand words, or twenty bucks. If you don't already have one, get a Honda shop manual. If you are willing to dig, you can download a free one from this site.

Dont forghet to reinstall that timing / flywheel cover.
You will have a mess of engine oil all over the top of the motor leaking onto your garage floor, making a complete mess of things.
I read it in a book somewhere.........................

I read the same book. I now take the ignition key out and put it on the workbench with the timing cap on top of it.

I didn't need the book, I just left the timing cover off! At least I'm willing to admit it :dude: Just part of the Goldwing learning curve. All the best to all, Dick

be sure to check your cam and crank seals while you are in there it can save you from having to take the covers off a second time in the near future.
