Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing
F the button in the switchgear for the starter is good, you will get a
12V trigger signal on the solenoid to activate it. If that is there,
and the battery voltage stays around 12V when pressing the button, you
should hear an audible click from the solenoid, and the starter should turn.
You mention battery and starter are new, I assume you mean new, and
not used replacements. If you short out the solenoid the starter
should spin the engine with or without spark plugs. Shorting the
solenoid can be dangerous so be careful, and be sure that what you
short the solenoid out with, can carry multiple amps such as a big
screwdriver. If it does not spin the motor with the plugs in but will
without the plugs, I would suspect the starter is either bad, or the
incorrct one for the bike. You can check if the button and solenoid
are working by checking for 12V at the starter when the button is
pressed. The voltage there should be 11-11.5V during cranking, if not
the battery may be too weak. There are Goldwing experts on this forum
that may have seen this problem before.
