Right head needs pulled. Valve guides and seals. maybe a little bit more. Duno. I could do it myself but dont want to think that hard.

I would be willing to pay for some good telephone support also from anywhere.

I am leaving for 5 days, so I wont be replying till next week.

I'm not familiar with anyone working on bikes in your area. Hopefully someone will see this and assist you.

Try Tom Clark Motor Sports in Belle Vernon, Pa. 724-929-7333. I live about 1 1/2 hours from your location. I have a table lift but have never worked on a 4 cylinder wing before. Tom Clark seems to work on almost anything though. Do you have the service manual for your year wing. If not, can obtain it from FAQ-reference forum. Let me know what you are going to do or if Tom Clark MS is willing to do the job.

Thanks for the help. I called Tom Clark but the gold wing guy was not in till tomorrow. Do you have a link to that shop manual download on the web? I cannot seem to locate it.

I actually have a hoist to lift it up in the air and block under it so I can get to it and most of the tools and ability. I actually worked 30 years ago as a summertime small engine mechanic at the local honda dealer. But since it was so long ago and there is no head honcho to get advice from at my fingertips I am a little leary of doing it unless I have too.

Used to work as a mechanic myself andf I understand what you are talking about, but if you can tear it apart, you can put it back together. Just a big pain in the @#$$^@##%#&%@[email protected]:dude:

Recommend you use NAPA as your parts supplier. Good quality parts for all Hondas from head gaskets to valve seals to timing belts. Much cheaper than going to the Honda dealer. Buy-the-way, if it has been a long time since the timing belts were changed, this would be the time to do it. Get that manual and follow it(step by step) and it is a piece of cake. I have pulled both left and right side heads on 1000's and 1100's as well as have had to replace a left side head bolt hole with a helicoil. If you must do this be sure to buy the kit with an insertion tool. Make sure you have a good torque wrench cause the head bolts are stretch bolts. To buy new ones is almost prohibitive.
