Question
Where is the crank case vent located on a 1990 goldwing 1500?

Answer
Dale, I have never worked one of these, but looking at some microfiche illustrations on-line, it seems to be tied into the air filter system

centered around #25.

If you have an owner's manual or shop manual, there should be information about servicing the separator system to drain out the solids, every so often.
