Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing

1 Answer

Firing on 2 Cylinders

I have an '82 GL 1100 GW Interstate. The previous owner had the carbs redone by Honda, and I just got it after it had been sitting for a few years in a garage. The previous owner had tried to start it, it wouldn't start, and a friend of his managed to get it going. However, it is firing on 2 cylinders. All wires seem to be attached to their proper spots. Does it have to do with the coil pack or other electronics? What can I do to correct the problem? I'll be glad to supply any additional information. Thanks!

Change the coils into a different order and see what happens. If it starts firing on 2 different cylinders then you know that you need to replace the coil packs

I have a 82 gl 1100 goldwing. The previous owner


The fuse on the starter solenoid is the main fuse for the bike. If that fuse was removed and replaced with a wire, you could melt down the entire harness or even burn up the cycle. The short that was popping the fuse has probably melted part of the harness or popped fuses in another part of the bike. Start checking in the main fuse box in the fake tank for shorts. Also check the solenoid with the main fuse for melt down, good luck.
