Okay, add to the list:

Looking for 1200 rocker arm ratio.
And 1000/1100 rocker arm ratio.

Probably not a lot of people that have ever been even curious about that, it is what it is.

EKvh,
Just set up a dial indicator and read the lift by putting the plunger right on top of the valve retainer and cycle the engine making note of the highest point. That is the lift at the valve. Doing some math you can figure the rocker ratio also. lift at the valve divided by lift at the camshaft. (lifter) would be the rocker arm ratio. As a matter of fact you can get any info you are interested in that way. :)

Yes, the dimensions needed for figuring ratios. To be useful where I am, I need the info for 1200's and 1000/1100's, which are the same. If you have to disassemble the heads, don't, just measure the actual intake valve opening. I can work backwards to figure the ratio.
@redwing52

As mentioned I am 10,000 miles from my bikes and in a country that has no Goldwing. If I could measure these, I would. My predicament is trying to feed my shade-tree-mechanic side and have a good handle on what to expect when I arrive home in April. My plan is detailed above. It's a one-off attempt.
I am fishing for any info I can get, and beggar I am.

The only thing I have been close to being able to do is using pics from eBay. There the arms look to be a different ratio, but you never know what angle the pics were taken from.

Something like this. It could be anywhere on the vertical line of center as long as both sides were measured from the same spot. Top is a 1000 arm, bottom is a 1200.

On my 82,I cleaned up all the areas that flowed fuel,opened up some areas in them that had some mismatch,did some polishing on some areas and built an exhaust that replaced the original and got the bike to under 500 lbs,that motor would turn 12000rpm fairly easy and was very fast in a drag race but on top end it scare the crap apt of me,the motor can live at higher than red line so if you get the weight off and do some minor work on the fuel flow you would happy but if you get done with what you are trying you could surprise a lot of riders,mine would stay right with a 600Kawasaki until 100 mph.
back in the 70s that is why we rode em! you could run with almost anything on the road. that DAY IS NOT here any more but back in the day it was MY favorite! but it still 1 of my most memorial bikes. i got a gpz 1100 also. had to have em when they was hot. still have my first of em both.:) but that day is long gone but not forgotten! so there is not anything but found memories of first bikes. i still like the 1000 gl very much as any bike i have owned.:) have youu rode a new fast bike.them new bikes are 99% faster through the gears! just think what are are great great great great great great grand kids gonna by riding! 1st gear 200 mph 2 gear300 mph. lol.:ROFL:

Are there some pistons-trick rings- cylinder heads etc. off a Honda race bike that will fit the Wing?
If we are going outside the box....maybe a small Porsche motor swap?!?


I've often wondered if an air cooled Porsche, beetle or bus motor could work.
