Default ST1100 - Timing Belts

Anyone know of or have access to Honda's recommended change interval for the Timing Belts.

Not doing belts on a ST but Gold Wing and we were never given a recommendation, in writing anyway, as to change mileage or time.
I seem to recall 60k mileage.

One recommendation from a early Wing specialist is 5 year/25k whatever is first.
5 years I have no problem with but the 25k seems somewhat extreme.
But belts are cheap the damage they can do is extensive and expensive.

Just interested in what Mother Honda had to say on the timing/mileage.

Not sure about the 'wing but the ST11 calls for an inspection at 60K and replacement at 90K.

Thanks.
Just what I was looking for.

The belts on the Wing live in their own "area" with nothing but their tensioners inside.
They live across the front of the engine driven off the crank to a gear on each cam.

Mine look good but they have hit their 5 year period several years ago.
I've actually seen what happens when you break a belt.
It's one of the reasons I own this bike.
I thought I could fix it. I did.

The ST1100 uses one belt but in addition to a tensioner pulley there is also a water pump pulley driven by the timing belt. Seems skipping water pump replacement at the 90K belt change is OK, but after changing the belt at the 180K point a few water pump failures have been reported. This tends to take the timing belt with it and the inevitable result being bent valves. Wisdom indicates the WP should be replaced at the second TB change.

I did belts on my '93 1500 wing a couple years ago at 70,000. the belts were original to the bike. but I think Honda sez 100,000 miles. I've never seen or heard a mileage interval for earlier wings but I don't think I would go over 80,000 miles or on the belts just to have some wiggle room

I'm using, for the first time ever, Gates belts, Gates radiator hose, Stant thermostat and radiator cap.
All of these are available on Amazon of all places.

Parts availability for 40 year old motorcycles, any manufacture and any model, is a serious issue.

Am I seeing your posts on Naked Gold Wings?

I get my belts and hoses from Napa also for my GL1000. Napa has Gates belts. I never run over 3 years on the belts. They are almost as easy to change as the oil is on a old wing. Early Wing belts are not like later years, they are not long life belts. Now if the carbs where as easy to service that would be great.

I replaced the belt cover gaskets.
I think it took longer to get them on the covers that change the belts.

The band-saw made short work of the radiator hose.

Flush and finish will end the project today.
