First place i would go is the switch either take it apart and clean it or replace it as this is what makes the reverse turn on this bike

Sounds like the wheels need to be balanced or check the tires to see if there is any bolging?

My mortorcycle will roll as if in neutral in all gears while it is not running must block tires when i get off 1985 honda goldwing gl1200 trike


This is obviously a clutch issue. IIRC, Goldwing has a hydraulic clutch, so I'd start by bleeding it (especially if the oil in it is older than two years). Other than that, you'll need a mechanic to check it out.

Hi, Jdandpeggy and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must 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.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

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.

TPMS Light


The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) gets signals from transponders in the wheels. By modifying the unit from its stock form (removing the stock rear wheel), the TPMS is not receiving a signal and will cause the warning light to illuminate. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this without returning the bike to stock. The light will not cause any damage, but the system will not be able to alert you of low pressure in the front wheel.

Won't crank


Sounds like a broken fuse - or a bad electrical connection at the fuse. Try removing the fuse and carefully clean any corrosion from it and the mounting hardware. Do the same with the battery connections.
