Picked up a 86 Gl1200 today, paid only $500 for it, pretty decent looking shape, but told it would not run right as it has no power, and the occassional back fire. Previous owner told me he replaced alot of parts, stator, rebuilt carbs, timing belts, and battery after it stopped upon him riding it back from the shore one weekend. Upon my own inspection tonight after alot of disassembly it appears the left two cylinders have no compression, the rights seem fine, all my cylinders have spark though. Im guessing he probably either installed the left belt incorrectly or the left belt caused damage to the valves when the belt broke as he was riding. I went on ebay tonight and ordered a cylinder head complete, top end gasket set, spark plugs and of course new timing belts. Does this sound like a feasable solution/problem, or am I overlooking something that is Goldwing specific? As this is my first goldwing, im kinda excited as this is the biggest bike I've ever owned, after owning quite a few bikes in past and present. I cant wait to get it running and take it out on the road for the first time.
