I bought 82 gold wing last summer and put around 2000 miles on it.Had carbs rebuilt and painted during winter.Changed last week timing belts and strator cap was gone.Took it for ride and oil was coming out of strator.Never leaked before.Alot of air is coming out of strator hole when running. Is this normal?

I'm going to assume that strator means radiator. :?
If so it looks like you may have a blown head gasket.

Stator cap, Ken.
I've never driven without it. Gotta be making one heck of a mess. Put a cap on it, it's not suppose to be open.

What the heck is a strator cap?

Do you mean the crank position mark inspection cap above the stator housing?

If U mean the stater cap on the back round can looking part of rear case, YES it's open to the crank case & the pistons moving up n down & some blowby the rings do cause that . Get a cap 4 it!

They are the same as the valve caps on the old CB750s and others along with the final drive caps on the wings.
