Centerstand the motorcycle, locate the starter under the left cylinders, pull back the rubber cover on the solenoid cable and unbolt the battery cable, take out the two bolts holding the back end of the starter to the block, and pull the starter straight out of the motor. You may have to gently pry the starter out with the help of a screw driver.

SOURCE: 1981 honda goldwing wont start

while trying to start an engine, and only the solenoid clicks, there are these 3 things- no juice from the battery, starter corroded contacts(the big cables) or starter is shot. so first make sure the battery is charged, next make sure the cable mounts from battery to starter are clean(no rust), if that is all good and doesnt start , remove starter and have it tested.

SOURCE: We removed starter from a 1983 Honda Goldwing

the starter is the tensioner, there is an internal besides that as well. This is one of the most difficult out there that is for sure. You may have to rotate the engine or starter gear subtly to get everything to line up. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

SOURCE: honda goldwing 1100 1981 i bought an air pump

A better answer than 'just replace the fuse', is to install a new lighter socket near the battery with a new fuse holder and a heavy enough fuse and wiring to sustain the current draw of the air pump. Connect the wiring (with fuse) directly to the battery connections. Hope this helps.

Bought 1981 honda goldwing gl1100 and I dont have any power when I turn key on. I have replaced the relay and still no power at all. can you help me?


Hi, Kevin before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

I drove to work on my 83 goldwing. At lunch drove without incident. At knockoff, the starter would turn but not engage. Any ideas?


Assuming the starter chain has not broken your one way clutch inside the motor is slipping. On the back side flywheel is a one way clutch that grabs the starter gear when the starter motor spins. It is designed to let go of the gear once the motor fires up. If the mating surface of the one way clutch and the starter gear becomes rough or chattered, it will no longer grab and turn the motor over. To repair this you will have to take off the crankcase cover and pull off the fly wheel to replace the one way clutch and the starter gear. Unfortunately, if I am correct, you will have to remove the motor to replace parts #2 and 15.
