Description for replacing the timing belt from a GL 1000 Goldwing



The #1,3 cylinders will be under pressure from the valve springs. To keep it from lashing back I used a wrench on the crankshaft bolt and zip-tied it to the water pipe. If you don't keep the crankshaft in place the #1,3 cylinder will rotate since it's under load and will turn the crankshaft, which will throw off the timing mark. Don't ask how I know Wink .  (Text by Windjammer)
