When sitting on bike, starter is directly under driver, left side of bike at bottom, just above exhaust pipe behind shifter mechanism. You have to remove shift lever to remove it, attaches with 3 bolts. I have repair manual available on cd. Easy project, have replaced 3 myself so far. Motor does not have to be removed.

Just above the kickstand on the left side of the bike, to remove it, place the bike on the wheel stand, then remove the section of the frame where the kickstand is!!

Why is there oil coming out of my starter on my 1983 honda goldwing 1100

The oil seal on the end of the starter is leaking or the o-ring between the starter and the case is torn. If there is oil in your starter you may have to replace it. If the o-ring is ripped , pull out the starter replace the o-ring and put the starter back in it is just leaking around your starter.

What are the steps to change the starter on a 1983 goldwing 1100a aspencade( any tricks?)

first step... do not pull engine...remove battery and starter connections, if you have any skid bars on the left front, remove them. remove shift peg, remove front covers on that side, remove starter bolts, pull starter out, gear will stay with chain inside cover and drop down a bit, don't be scared. If you have bought an aftermarket starter watch that the spines and gears may not match, put the matching gear in the chain inside the case and put some assembly grease to hold it center in case while you install the new starter. It does take some self control but way more easier than pulling engine.

Bad Starter?

i would put a voltmeter on my battery if i was you and bet your not putting out 13+ prove this, jump start your bike and see how quick it turns over... i would take my starter to someone who rebuilds starters and have it overhauled if the first trick doesn't work....those old big bikes take a lot of juice ! good luck to you...Tim

I need a guide to tell me how to replace the starter on a 1983 1100 Goldwing.

I looked around and wasn't able to find a free PDF service manual for your bike. My usual freebe sites don't list yours. Try your local library. Often guys will donate manuals to the library. Below are two places you can buy manuals. You should be able to find one for your exact bike there.

Google " repair manuals honda " OOPS! I found one >
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

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.
