Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing
Ran fine. Developed rhythmic skip. Found resister in spark plug cap was "open." Replaced and ran fine. Week later developed a skip, checked other resisters, fine. Skip got progressively worse and erratic. Runs like it is out of time. Will barely start. While cranking it "knocks." Will not run below 2500 rpm without full choke. As it accelerates up from 1500 to 2800 it knocks and skips badly. Around 3000 it smooths out a bit and at 3500 up it is a minor skip. Inductive timing light shows fire going to all cylinders.
I had a similar problem and traced it to the hole in the gas cap was rusted shut so that the engine was starved for gas. I drilled a small hole in the gas cap and it runs like new. Sorry-no new gas caps are available through the Honda dealer as the bike is so old.
