Starting Issue for my 1982 Honda GL1100 Aspencade

I went out to start it and when I pressed the ignition button, The engine did not start, but I heard a click and the power went out until I released the iginition button. Tired again, and everytime the same thing. Sounds like the clicking is coming from the start relay? The battery is fully charged. Am I on the right trail here? Any suggestions to make sure it is the starter relay?

    Battery is a couple of years old. I went out and jumped it with my car. Voila - it kicked over. Good news is that it is the battery, bad news is i have to buy one. lol. Thanks for the help.

    went to start my 1982 gl 1100 this spring, motor turned over fine, but wouldn't start. i think i may have flooded it. waited awhile, and tried again. all i hear is a clicking sound, and motor will not turn over.

    my interstates starter relay just clicks..

    Anyone know how to check it?

    battery might be fully charged, but it is past its useful life as under load, it doesn't have enough amps to turn the starter motor. how old is this battery?



    try jumping the bike with an automobile battery or portable battery box and see if it fires. if it does, then replace the battery. if it doesn't, then report back and see what we can try next.

Glad to hear it was only the battery.

when you buy one (either from a store or online), be sure to trickle charge it completely BEFORE using it on the bike. gotta start with a fully charged battery or it will never perform properly in the future.

online stores will sell you "dry" batteries so you'll have to buy some acid at your local auto parts store. if you get it from a store, it should come "wet". both will need a charge first.

2 years is about right for a lead-acid battery especially the lower end units. if you go with a yuasa brand, expect additional 1 to 2 years.

glad i could help. enjoy that classic!

Hooked brake lights up and it stopped starting and all lights stopped working when u turn key on i got new battery and rectafifer on it


Hi, Steve and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing will not start when hot


Hi, Newvisionss your bike starts great when cold but once it reaches operating temperature and the engine is shut off for a few minutes then you try to restart it and it will turn over but will not fire or it doesn't do anything, the usual suspects are:
1. When electronics get hot they build up resistance then stop working. It might be an ignition coil, stator, CDI unit etc. First, you must find out if the spark dies out. When the bike won't start, pull a plug wire off, stick a new spark plug in the end and ground the threads on bare metal while someone cranks the engine over. You should see a nice big blue spark between the spark plug gap. Incorrect spark plug gap will cause or contribute to a no start when hot issue.
2. Fuel Tuners have been known to cause this type of problem, disconnect it and see if resolves the issue.
3. Any engine management sensor could be faulty especially the ones that monitor temperature.
4. Gas cap not venting properly, improperly routed fuel lines they must always go down from the gas tank to the carburetor never in any kind of a loop this will cause a vapor lock. Clogged, bent, kinked, pinched or restricted carburetor vent lines will do the same.
5. Overhead camshaft valves adjusted too tight when cold, this will cause loss of compression when hot, except for pushrod engines they usually get looser when hot.
