I JUST PURCHASED A 1985 GL-1200 INTERSTATE, AND AM LOOKING FOR AN

OWNERS MANUAL FOR THIS MODEL. I FOUND ONE OWNERS MANUAL

ONLINE, BUT IT WAS FOR A DIGITAL DASH, MINE IS ALL ANALOG, THE PREVIOUS

OWNERS HAVE ADDED AND REMOVED A LOT OF ELECTRICAL PIECES, AND I'M

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT EVERYTHING IS.

temp. indicates engine temp. the fan kicks in when the needle is around the 40%, at city driving it may get up to 60%. at open road will should read 30-35%. if your bike is overheating you must check the coolant level, thermostat and fan thermoswitch.

fuel self explanatory but you got to get used. when it reads half you actually have around 3 quarters of thank.

tail light comes on when first starts and goes off 1 sec later. if it remains on, it means you have a burnt bulb at the tail. must check, only checks saddlebags tail and brake, trunk is not sensed by this.

fuel comes on when you're on the reserve. you may have around 2 gallons left.

neutral shows up when the gearbox is in neutral.

OD indicates when you're on fifth gear """overdrive gear"""

hope this helps. i also haven't been able to find an interstate manual but i think i've discovered every function of it :p

www.helminc.com makes print to order manuals for pretty much any Honda made vehicle, motorcycles included. They should have owners manuals, service manuals, and most of the supplement manuals.

IT LOOKS LIKE SOME OF MY INDICATORS MAY NOT BE WORKING CORRECTLY,

OR ARE INTERMITTANT.

THE NEUTRAL LIGHT ISN'T WORKING, AND THE 'OD' LIGHT, WHICH

I ASSUME IS OVERDIRVE, OR 5th GEAR, ISN'T WORKING, IT DID COME

ON ONCE BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE SYMBOL MEANT.

THE LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT DOES COME ON WHEN THE

IGNITION KEY IS ON, AND GOES OUT WHEN STARTED, AND I

DON'T THINK THE LOW FUEL LIGHT COMES ON.

if the bike starts on neutral so pretty much is the bulb. move or start another thread on the technicla support board. we are right now at the trade board :)
