Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing

3 Answers

I need a replacement fuel pump for my GL1200 Limited. I understand that the OEM is not available. I have heard of compatible auto fuel pump that will work. I am trying to identify the manufacturer and model.

    the replacement fuel pump must work on a GL1200 Limited Edition (1985).

  • Anonymous Jan 20, 2010

    Will this pump work on the GL1200 Limited Edition which has fuel injection? The standard GL1200 fuel pumps will not work on the Limited Edition.

    my bike is a GL1200 Limited. You note states that the pump you cite will not work with the 1985 Limited model. I need to identify a pump that will work with the 1985 Limited since the OEM is not available. I have heard that there is an automobile pump that will work but I have not been able to identify the model and manufacturer.

    Lee: thanks for all your efforts. The bike was picked up today by the Honda shop. They told me on Saturday that it was probably the fuel pump and I should start looking for one. I expect them to confirm the diagnosis sometime tomorrow. So I should be ready to go if you find another.



    thanks again

    Sounds like a winner. Help like this is essential in keeping a classic bike running as Honda slowly stops making OEM parts for the older bikes.

Seeing as how it was raining today, I don't feel quite so bad about turning wrenches.

After 120K or so, the fuel pump died about 3 miles from home. As I am a cheap (broke) bastard, I am morally opposed to shelling out $170 plus at the dealer.

So off we go to AutoZone. Mr.Gasket # 12S looks good, and is only $44.99. It pumps at 4-7 lbs, and draws about 2 amps, so flow or draw shouldn't be excessive. As long as we're in there, might as well replace the fuel filter too. FF2314 fits the stock holder, and at $1.99 beats the snot out of $20 at the dealer.

You'll need a 1/8 NPT brass elbow and 1/8 NPT 1/4" barb to connect the line to the pump You also need to rout out the mounting holes just a bit in order to mount to the stock pump holder. After you get everything lined up, connect the green wire to the black wire on the pump, the other wire, blue/green, to the red wire and voila, a new fuel pump.

Total cost out the door with new fuel line and some heat shrink to make everything pretty is $51 plus tax.

Took about 4 hours, but then I get kinda anal about routing things and such.

And lo and behold the rain stopped so I can take a check ride.

1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing fuel light comes on bike quits running


Hi, Jfrancismess and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.
21. Catastrophic engine failure, perform a compression test.
