Hi,

For the motor to engage even with ignition off would indicate that the starting relay/solenoid is faulty and the contacts are fused together. Another possibility and that could also be responsible for the missing lights would be a mis-connected connector.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

How to replace a starter on a honda goldwing 1981


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.

Clutch slips more than it should. 1982 honda goldwing feels like motor is misfireing


If the motor seems like it is idling roughly/misfiring try putting on a set of new spark plug caps on. You can purchase NGK brand for about $5 each ($20). I drove my first used GL1000 home from the dealership and was regretting the purchase it was running so terribly. I had the spark plug caps in my pocket on the way home. I changed the caps in the driveway and could not believe the difference. It was a completely different motorcycle. The resisters in the caps often burn out. If you check the caps with a voltage meter they should read 5000 OHMS. Anything higher or lower replace the cap.
It is possible to replace the clutch plates with the motor in the frame. The clearance is very tight. First, check that the clutch cable is not binding. This can cause the clutch to slip each shift and it is a lot easier to replace. Next smell the oil to see if there are burnt clutch plates. It may be easier to try replacing just the clutch springs. If they are below 1.35 inches (34.2 mm) they are below tolerance and need to be replaced. New tolerance is 1.4 inches (35.5 mm).Use only OEM Honda springs. If you inspect the clutch plates and they are warped, scored, or burnt replace the whole set with OEM Honda parts. Replace the cable first, then the springs, then the plates.

My 1982 Honda goldwing clutch will not disengage when trying to put in gear or when stopping, any suggestions?


Try adjusting the cable slack at the back of the motor. If there is still not enough tension in the system you may have a worn cable housing and you will have to replace the cable assembly. Sometimes the lever hole (where the cables attach) and the hole where the mounting bolt for the lever wear out of round. You may find replacing the lever and the mounting bolt will also help the clutch work more smoothly.

Solenoid clunks bike does not start


Make a connection between the positive battery cable and the starter cable located on the solenoid. This will put power directly to the starter. If the starter turns the motor over then the contacts inside the solenoid are burnt, replace the solenoid. If when jumping the solenoid the starter does not turn over , remove the starter and check to see if the brushes are worn out. If the brushes are worn replace them. If the starter is worn out replace it no other parts are available to fix it.

Have a 1982 Honda CB650SC NightHawk and had the carbs off and know the choke won't work.when you when you try to turn the choke off it's like the cable is


Check the routing of the choke cable and, basically, make sure it does not get kinked or pulled tight when the handlebars are turned from side to side. Then, remove any excess free play in the cable by turning the adjustment fitting that's part of the cable. You want it so that the choke mechanism on the carburetors begins to move as soon as the handlebar mounted choke lever is moved. If the cable is worn worn - or broken - replace it.

1982 500cc honda silverwing, bike is charging @ aprox. 11.5v , also when right signal is put on right side running lights go out, are the 2 conected(ground short) ? or maybe stater? , new to bikes with no...


1st, Your alternator is charging real heavy. the lower yhe voltage the hidher the amps. 2nd, yes, Turn on one and the other dima is indicarive of a poor ground which would in turn affect the charging rate. Nowm The bad ground is more than likely the battery cable on the negative. But, Check the other end of the cable also. good luck- Ned
