PARTS AND ADVICE FOR YOUR 'OLDEN GOLDIE'
An online source dedicated to Honda's amazing four cylinder Goldwings!
GL1200 TIMING BELTS
The timing belts are the two most important maintenance items in your engine; only buy quality replacements.
The Goldwing engine is an interference design, meaning if a belt breaks, you will have engine damage.
At the very least, you can expect to replace most valves on the side with the broken belt; at the worst, you'll be looking for another engine!
We recommend that you adhere to our following workshop practices.
We change them if:
If we don't know the history of the belts absolutely for sure.
We know the history, but the engine has been sitting for some considerable time without being turned over.
More than 25,000 miles or five years since a change.
PLEASE REMEMBER! YOU SIMPLY CANNOT TELL THE CONDITION OF A BELT BY LOOKING AT IT!
Due to the construction of the belts, they rarely show signs of usage.
They look perfect one day and go bang the next, without warning.
If you have any doubts, changing them is the cheapest insurance against failure.
And at these great prices, why would you chance it?
