SOURCE: I just bought an old 1983 1100 GL Goldwing. Can

There is a sight window on the right side of the engine by the brake pedal. It may look brown or black. There is a screw in the window that operates a wiper inside the window. Once the window is clean, you should see an upper and lower level mark. You might want to consider purchasing a dip stick kit from J.C. Whitney. They are available for about $25.
Be sure to put the bike on center stand for oil check.

SOURCE: brushes in starter

Yes. It can be done. The starter motor is located outside the engine block so it should be easy to take it out. from there, you may disassemble the starter motor and replace the carbon brush as you wish.

SOURCE: 1983 goldwing 1100 hard to start

Did the old battery not have this problem? Need more of a description of the problem though.

Does the battery turn the motor over acceptably, and it just won't fire? Or does it seem to lack the current to turn the motor over?

For potential battery conditions, check voltage at battery, then check voltage at starter--if you lose too much, check the yellow triple wire connector right by the battery for corrosions/breaks, etc. Many have had trouble with this little connector set and most opt to replace the connector completely with a solid hard wiring.

There are many possibles on hard starts- if a physical problem, like the battery appears to not have enough power, make sure you've got good oil (to reduce friction of the innards, uses less power to crank). Also, make sure there's not a build up of fuel in a cylinder that causes a HYDRO LOCK--making it almost impossible for the starter to turn the motor over.

Start from NEUTRAL, not from geared with clutch lever held in--

1983 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing no spark


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 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 batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check 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 if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Change spark plug


Your tool kit has a thin wall spark plug wrench with a grabber to change the plug. If you don't have a tool kit you can buy just the plug wrench at your local Honda dealer. The spark plugs are on top of the head . You may have to remove chrome carburetor covers or your lowers to gain access . Then pull plug caps, check to make sure there is no mud or collected dirt, if so clean out before proceeding. After you blow out junk (if there is any) take a piece of wire and make sure the drain holes are clear. Now remove the old spark plugs and replace with four new NGK DPR8EA-9 gapped to .035 in.
