    Sorry, I didn't make it clear. It's not the reverse light that is shorting, its the fuse for the backup (reverse) button. I figure its a short, but don't know where to look.

Hello

I answered in your other post as well. I am assuming that this is an ELECTRICAL issue for the above problem so I will answer electrically as it wasn't 100% clear.

Its because somwhere down the line you SHORT-CIRCUITED the 2 wires going to the reverse light of your motor bike. If it is just ONE wire going from the reverse fuse to the reverse light then the main problem must be that the wire's insulation somewhere is going to earth (metal chassis of your bike) before it actually reaches the bulb hence it blows your fuse. First try by removing the bulb and see if it still blows without the bulb in place. Then this means that you will just have to check from the bulb holder to the fuse for any cuts in the wire etc. Your problem is a short-circuit.

Hope that this helps :) I love bikes :)

Best Regards

Reverse fails to engage


you must do the reversing in correct order :
Engine running, transmission in neutral. Press Reverse button. Then press the starter button. The starter motor moves the bike in reverse.

Battery fuse blows when i hook up new battery


With battery disconnected, take a meter reading [resistance / ohms] across the battery leads. It sounds like you have close to a short circuit in your primary charging/supply circuit. 0.6 ohm will take out a 20 amp fuse. Ohms law I = V/R. Quite a few other factors to take into account but you'll have to find what's causing the low resistance.

Bike is blowing the starter fuse


Check all of your wiring. Sounds like there is a cut and making it ground out causing the fuse to blow to protect your bike.

1995 Gold Wing - reverse does not work. It engages but does not back the Wing up.


It sounds like broken or stripped out gears in the reverse motor. You will need to remove it to check further.

I installed a wolo air horn 419 and when I push the horn button all I here is the compressor and no horn.


It is possible that you may have reversed the polarity on the compressor; it may be "pulling" air instead of blowing it out. Remove the air hose from the compressor and put your thumb over the air outlet while pressing on the horn switch. If you don't feel air blowing out, reverse the positive & negative wires going into the compressor and repeat the test. The air horns should work at this time.

Note: Always install a relay on this type of horn system; the compressor puts a high amount of load on the horn switch if you don't.

Gl1800 reverse stopped working. I haven't used the bike since last oct/nov and everthing else seems ok. presume reverse must have same fuse as starter motor but not shore. Any ideas?


There is host of problem incured with this. The linkage to the starter motor maybe out of adjustment. The switch push for reverse and the light will come on the dash. That switch can cause problems. The whole switch assembly has to be change/not cheap. Try some WD-40 and work the switch back in forth. Go to Goldwing Goldwing there are good help manuals for all goldwing. To check reverse start motor and leakage require a lot of space.

look under the seat at the relays for one that deals with reverse or the transmission. you may need to replace that. when you locate it, pull it for about a minute and put it back in... see if it works then...

Reverse override button doesn't seem to change anything


Check all the connection on the override circuit. If you ride in muddy and sandy and wet conditions connections can become loose and therefore cause the feature to lack, or not work at all.
