  • 1985 LTD trip computer screen

    Looking at a 1985 fuel injected in really nice shape. The trip computer screen doesn't light up. Searched for a fix but haven't found anything. Anyone here have knowledge on how to make it work? I fear 35 year old parts may be hard to come by especially on a limited number production bike.

    There is a 7 amp fuse (holder) under the left hard pocket. attached to the right side of the fairing wall.

    It provides power to the trip computer.

    I have a couple spare Computers if ya need a test mule??

        If the fuse is Good?

        Then open the fuel door.
        Release the two black computer lid locks.(Left & Right sides)
        Lift the computer.(about 4-5 inches)
        Wiggle the Large connector (Mainly the Thick white Wire in the connector)

        To see if the Dash Meter cluster flickers?? (That indicates a poor connection on the that wire pin to the computer)

        FYI - These Injected bikes are more reliable than ANY Goldwing that came after it!!!

        Honda used Civic parts for the injection system. (Not that hard to find parts at all-LOL)

          Thanks again Rocky. I'll have to decide whether to make an offer and drag this old wing home before I can do the trouble shooting. Nice to know about the FI parts. It has a trailer painted to match with Limited Edition badges on it just like the ones on the bike. Looked around but couldn't decipher who made the trailer. Very nice trailer but pretty small wheels and tires. They would make 10 times the rotation of the bike wheels. Never been a trailer man myself but it does come with the trailer.

            It's a Myth about smaller 10" wheel bearings.

            They last as long as any other wheel bearing on a cargo trailer.
            I re-pak bearings one a year to inspect them.
            9 out of 10 times they don't need new grease, but get it anyways seeing they are in my hands (Peace on mind-lol)

          Trailer looks like a Shore brand.

          Here is more pic's.

            Asking $3000. 38K miles. It starts and runs very nice. Has a few add on panels I would probably remove like the brake covers and some covers in front of the side panels that would come off to get it back to stock. The paint is really nice. Just needs a good Mophead scrub and shine.

              I see Markland engine covers & Caliper covers.(Painted)
              Chrome bars on top/Side of bag covers.
              Chrome trunk rail surround.
              Seat doesn't look OEM?
              Front fender rail is a bolt on.


              The Price for a clean smooth running bike with that mileage is in line.
              The drilled chrome add on takes away from value-unless the buyer like that?

              Here is what a Stock Limited should look like. (everything else is aftermarket)

                You are correct in the add on chrome pieces on the saddlebags being a detraction. There are also some murals painted on the saddle bag lids and trunk lid. Not sure if those can be removed without disturbing the paint. Probably have been on the bike for many years.
                I really want to have a Nekkid Wing with basic controls and zero LED panels. Just analog gauges and simple. I have an 18 Wing so have all the electronics I need and then some.
                I'm thinking a GL1100 with mag wheels. Not interested in spokes. Probably just keep looking unless this guy really wants to unload the LTD for cheap.

                  Honda came out with an aluminum cast wheel in 83/1100

                  The 84-87 1200 Interstates had analog Gauges.
                  The 84-87 1200 Aspencades had Digital Gauges.
                  The 85/LTD & 86 SEi 1200's were fuel injected (More reliable than the 4 carb brothers)

                  Depending on what I call very good condition. the LTD you are looking at, is to me a $2000 bike.

                  Problem is Goldwing owners think they can recover the money they spent on accessories.

                  The fact of the matter is. "Less is More" Meaning , Work and money is involved to get rid of crap accessories, to make it their own.
                  Then do all the service that is needed to bring it up to spec's.


                  A Clean turn key is like finding Lips on a Chicken!!

                  FYI- Easy off Blue can,and a Q tip removes murals/pin striping without harming the paint.

                  I've changed the color of my pin striping 3 times on my 18.
