Right side, just around the foot brake. Best way to check the oil level is, bike on center stand, engine running, flashlite in hand, have some one turn the engine off while you look at the glass, you will see the oil settle to it's level this way.

Where is the dipstick for a 1983 Honda goldwing 1100?

There is no dipstick on this motorcycle. There is an inspection window called "a sight window" on the bike's right side when sitting on it, a bit forward of the rear brake pedal. There are two lines on the sight glass. They form the upper and lower oil level indicators. The oil should be at the upper or between the two levels. It happens that the oil level cannot be seen through this small window but it can be cleaned by turning a small screw located in the middle of the sight glass. This turns a small wiper blade that cleans the glass from the inside.

Have the bike on the center stand and look in the sight glass. Its on the foot brake side. Just wipe it and use a flash lite. Helps if the engine is running and have some one turn it off and you will see the oil settle.

How do you check the oil on a 1981 Honda 1100 Goldwing There is no dipstick and you can't see a sight glass?

I too also have a Goldwing,and I was having that same problem. Believe it or not I used my car oil dip stick,to check my gave some indication how much oil was in there I have a 1980 Honda GL1100i "Interstate". The motor oil level is checked through a sight window in the right side of the case, a little bit forward of the rear brake pedal. There are two lines molded into the case beside the sight glass. These are your upper and lower level indicators. You want your level to be about midway between those marks. If you cannot see the oil level, you might have some oil "schmutz" on the inside of the window. You can clean this by turning the little screw in the middle of the sight glass, which turns a set of miniature wipers on the glass, cleaning it off. try putting the bike on the centerstand, starting the engine, let it idle. now look at the siteglass window for your oil level. should be halfway up the window with 3.7qts of oil.

Where should the oil level be in a Honda GL1000 Goldwing?

There is no dipstick on this bike. Instead, there is a sightglass on the right side of the crankcase. You may have to use a flashlight to see the oil level through the sightglass. With the bike on the center stand, the oil level should be around the middle of the sight glass "window". Some people have made their own dipsticks to use in these bikes.

Where can you check the engine oil level on a 1985 Goldwing?

I have an '83 so they should be the same. Look towards the bottom of the engine on the right side between the peg and the brake. there should be a sight glass on the block with a small peg that has a slot in it sticking out of the middle of it. after cleaning the outside of the glass if you still can't see the level due to the glass being dirty on the inside, get a flat head screwdriver and turn the peg in the middle of the glass in a complete circle several times. This is a cleaner and should clarify the inside of the sight glass. now you should be able to view the oil level, but make sure you put it on the center stand first.

Allow it to idlefor about 30 seconds, so it can be a litlle bit warm. Stop the engine.3. View the oil level through thesight glass, make sure it is on the center not in the top*.4.
