Question about 1983 Honda GL 1100 Aspencade Gold Wing

1 Answer

Starting problems When I came back I tried to start the bike it started and died. Then I tried to start it again and it just cranked and cranked and cranked never turned over. I kept trying until my battery died. So I charged the battery up and tried it again. Now it sounds funny when it is cranking, it is almost like it is cranking fast. Still not turning over. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked to see if there is a spark at the plugs? When you pull one of the plugs, if the plug is drenched in fuel then it is flooded. Pull each plug and dry it off as best you can. Let the cylinders air out for a while before you put the plugs back in.

Yz 426 while riding it i went to park it thought it was out of gear and let out on the clutch and it died went to start it back up and the kick start seemed to b stuck so i rocked it back and forth fi


How does the compression feel now that you have it cranking over again. Without the decompression lever pulled in it should be next to impossible to kick it over. also, is there any noise coming from the engine (knocking, etc.) when you got it to start again.

Cranks but will not start


You need to check your charging system, if your stator is bad your battery will not charge. As far as it shutting down while riding that sound like you have an intermittent ground, so check all wire connections.

Has there been issue with 30 amp curcuit breaker needing to be changed to 40 amp on 2002 FXST


Main circuit breakers were a problem on the older bikes, problem being when over heated the would pop and you would lose all power to the bike. Now if you bike is dying and you still have power and are able to crank it but it wont start, then I'd be looking at you CPS not the main breaker. One way to tell if it's CPS is to remove it when bike doesn't start. Wipe all the oil off, take a can of compressed air blow it on the CPS to cool it down, put back in bike and start it, If it starts then the sensor is bad.

05 zzr 600 dies when driving and wont start back up


How long has the bike been sitting? Sounds like the carbs may be gummed up,and in need of a professional cleaning,and re-synchronizing.

07 ttr 125 cranks but will not start right up when it does it will not take gas it dies and you have to turn key off and back on before it will start back it will idle for a few seconds and die again over...


I have two ttr 125's and my son has another, all 05's but i ran into this with a friends 02 as well. All ttr 125's are cold blooded bikes to say the least. the cold starting procedure that works is to first lean the bike over to the left till it dribbles a little gas on the floor. hit the electric start for a few seconds only, wait 20 to 30 seconds and do it again. holding the starter button down and cranking will do nothing but flood the bike out. short busts only, dont give it any gas ever, this will also do nothing. first it will start for a brief moment then die, hit the button for about 3 to 4 revelutions and wait, the next time it will start again, most likely only for a few seconds again, repeat this and each time it will run a little longer till it keeps running on it own. the best way to get your ttr to start easier is to cut the top of the airbox off, this will give the bike more power (youll see why when you look at the tiny opening) and allow you to spray starting fluid under the back of the seat right into the airbox. it makes starting a cold bike 5 times faster. usually only 2 repeats of the starting procedure.
