    it could be a front brake lever switch or a coroaded ground going from frame starter relay or going to batttery

Most likely cause is an old wire worn through on or near the frame or engine where it is earthing out and blowing the fuse

SOURCE: need help to connect fuel lines 82 suzuki gs 750

the solution is very simple
there are 2 nipples underneath the petrol tank
the upper nippel should be conected to the venturi nipple because this on opens the valve (can try by light sucking on it)
the second ore lower nippel should be conected to the carbs there is a conection in the middle of the four carb's
please be sur you use fresh petrol and clean the carbs (using compressed air)

when you try without cleaning filter it wil run but not wen you open the trottle (it's because of the vacuum carb's they need the veturi that is placed in the air filter compartment)

lots of suc 6

SOURCE: I need tuning specs for my 1982 suzuki gs 750.

You need to fix the fueling first - without fuel it won't run!
Your other problem sounds like an air leak - either the manifold or the carb. Check by spraying WD-40 or CRC at the manifold and carb join while the bike is running - if the revs change (either up or down) you have a leak.

SOURCE: 1982 Suzuki GS850 GL will only run with the starter button held

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.

an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

My 1100 vstar keeps blowing the 30 amp fuse

Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing your blown fuse issue you are going to need a wiring from your service manual a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses. If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

Electrical problem

The main fuse is located on the starter solenoid. Have you checked that fuse. Perhaps the damage is part of the solenoid , did it get hot and partially melt. This is a common problem. There is also one single 10 amp fuse under the seat off of the main wire harness. Hope this helps.

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.

Can a voltage regulator/rectifier if not working properly blow the main fuse. I have a 2002 v-star 1100. I was riding when all of a sudden the bike died on me. I lost all power no light, turn signals,...

Good link here:

Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch


When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

Cagiva solenoid

1. Battery Voltage. - Key off: between 12 - 13VDC.
2. Key off Amp Draw - At the main fuse: < (less than) 1ADC

3. Key on Amp Draw - At the main fuse: Results will vary because of different loads.
*Note - DO NOT START THE BIKE WITH YOUR METER IN PLACE OF THE MAIN FUSE! Also, if you can not access the main fuse, put your positive meter lead on the red wire at the solenoid, and put your negative meter lead on the positive battery lead. This way you will be able to get your amperage readings AND let you start the bike without blowing your fuse.* Charging amperage should be at least 1 ADC

4. Break even speed - The RPM in which the charging voltage at the battery turns positive - Should be before Idle

5. Charging voltage at the battery - Between 13 - 15 VDC.

hope the above details help.thanks for using fixya.

Signal lights will only come on after 10-15 minutes of running

Sounds like time for a new battery. But first check the water level in each battery cell. There should be water covering the plates in each cell. Get a 1amp or a 2 amp trickle charger and put it on overnight. Start the bike in the morning and read the voltage with a volt ohmmeter at the battery terminals while the bike is at about 4000 rpm. Voltage should be at 14+ volts. If it is, and the battery will not hold a charge, then a new battery is called for. If the voltage is less than 14 volts then the battery is not getting re-charged by the bike. Check the wire connection from the battery to the flywheel. be sure all connections are clean and tight and that all wires are hooked up. Be sure there are no loose wires, pinched wires or abraded wires. If problems are still present then you should take the bike to the dealer and have them check the stator, regulator and rectifier.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

82 aspencade gl 1100 carbs keep flooding? i put them on buddys bike and they run great. so i changed fuel pumps, still flooding? whats left ?

It sounds to me you may have a vacum issue with your tank that is causing to much fuel to get deliverd to the carbs, try checking all the hoses on the tank to me sure they are in the correct place.If so then check the patcock to be sure that it is not allowing to much fuel through.
