If you don't know when the belts were last changed then it's time now.

I recommend you post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here, and a lot more people frequent over there. Just a few of us greeters hang out over here on a regular basis.

If you don't know when the belts were changed (if ever) you need to change them now. There are some good how-to procedures on this forum on how to do it. I am sending a link to the Bikers Workshop article with pictures on how to do it on a 1200. Not hard to do but it is critical that it be done right or some severe damage will result.

The valves have hydralic lash adjusters and no adjustment is required.

Welcome to the forum yaupon2000
As the Goldwings are interference motors, as said change now unless you have evidence that they were changed in the past few years as it is now age of the belt that is a factor more than the mileage. You don't want a broken belt, I have seen a hole in a piston from a valve breaking off and bouncing around in there. Not a pretty picture. Belts you can get for $16-$30 each, a motor will cost minimum of $300-$600 used.
Hydrolock lifters, no adjustment needed.

Welcome. Do you have a picture of your LTD? I have what is left of an LTD. It had been sitting out in the AZ sun for decades, and most of the LTD specific stuff was ruined. Still has the CFI, which I managed to fix. Many parts are no longer available for it. Mine had 93,000 on it when I got it, the speedo quit working shortly thereafter, and I use a GPS for speed and odometer.

I replaced the belts while doing a ground up mechanical restoration on it, the old belts looked good, but like everybody says, why take a chance. Once you have the covers off, go ahead and replace them. If one breaks or jumps teeth, it will destroy your engine. The belts are not expensive.

Riding with old unknown belts is playing Russian Reulet every time you start it up. You may get 100,000 or you may be sitting broke down waiting for a tow and a big repair bill.
