Bought a 1984 gl1200 that was pretty much dissassembled. Got it together except for a few pieces and some vacuum lines. I have searched several manuals for pictures to see where the parts go but cannot find any pictures that helped. Got any ideas? I would take pictures of the parts in question but not sure how to post to this site. I greatly appreciate any help.

Yep, I figured that would be the best way. I will get some pics and create a link to them. Thanks for the quick reply!

:waving::waving: Welcome to the World's Greatest Goldwing Site JerryR! :waving::waving:

Have you tried the parts diagrams located on the Honda Direct Line or Motogrid's websites. The exploded drawings can often help. Pictures posted here would also do the job. To post to the site just make sure your picture is fairly small, a 50k .jpg file would be about right, not too big for the fellows with phone modems. Just hit the browse button under the 'Post Reply' box and navigate to your picture then hit send.

Jerry, I watched your video, it showed the area under consideration wel. The tank looking gizmo should be the vacuum accumulator, it should have a tube from it to the a carb throat or an intake runner. There should be another tube or a Tee'd off line from the accumulator to a relay valve that controls the vacuum to the actuator, that round dingus that has a vacuum hose on one end and a pull cable to the throttle on the other end. The vacuum relay should be connected to the electronic box which also has wires to the on/off, set, accelerate and coast switches. I don't know what that red plastic diaphragm or whatever is, it doesn't look like Mother Honda's stuff to me. I could be wrong it's been quite awhile since I've been into a 1200. Might be some kind of aftermarket deal.

No identification on the electronics box. Do you think the black tank is an aftermarket part that is part of the cruise control system? I will try your links and see what I can find out. Thanks for the help.

At the front of the actuator there should be a cable and if you traced it, it should connect to the throttle linkage.
The tubular thing it a vacuum chamber and the flat box with the wires would be the electrical control box.
It definitely looks like an after market cruise control.
If it is working condition you should have a switch on or near the handlebars for controlling it. On/Off_coast_acc_set.
