SOURCE: 1983 Yamaha Seca 750 no spark

Check the battery should be 12V or more , Then check the coils the connections are under the gas tank make sure they are securely connected.
What kind of fuse box do you have? The glass fuses? Or did you replace the fuse box. If it is the glass fuses you need to replace with a new fuse box.
Check the kill switch and the side stand switch.
Check the coils too..

Rx50 no lights

Hi, Paul if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

2. Failed 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. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed 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. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.

1983 honda gold wing 1100 ,120,000 klm,runs great .When should one be doing a clutch change?

If you go easy on the clutch and do not pull a trailer, you may never have to replace the clutch. My GL1000 clutch has over 150,000 Miles (around 240,000 km) on it and works just fine

Clutch slipping very weak engagement of gears

check you have some slack on the cluch cable if its tight let the cable go so its got free play at the leaver if it still slips then its a set of cluch plats and springs that need fitting

Clutch engagement problem

my gess is you have the throtle cable to tight and the cluch cable is crossing over it,,,so every time you dip the cluch it opens the throtle as well by pressing on the throtle cable,,, its common for this to happen
check all your cables and if you need to to stop it happening again tape them together,,,,
