Question about 1983 Honda GL 1100 Aspencade Gold Wing
To replace the starter on my 1100 Goldwing I bought a 100lb magnet to hold the sprocket closer to the outside of the case. After a couple of tries I got the starter installed.

The starter is the tensioner, there is an internal besides that as well. This is one of the most difficult out there that is for sure. You may have to rotate the engine or starter gear subtly to get everything to line up. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Some of the aftermarket splines don't match the sprockets. remove the sprocket that is the case and make sure it goes onto the starter splines.

Have an "81" and have had the starter out (rebuilt it once, replaced it once and have rebuilt that one since) first time I followed the manual and pulled the engine first. Never again!
1. Get some strong help.
2. Put it on the side stand.
3. Jack the other side of the bike up to increase the angle of the bike. That will cause the sprocket to drop out to where the shaft of the starter will slide in.
4. Put the strong help where they can make sure the bike cannot drop on you, you won't like it.
5. Slide the starter in as far as it will go, and let the bike down to normal stance.
6. Finish driving the starter into place and replace the bolts.

Sounds to me like the sprockets arent ligning up right or maybe it's not going in straight.
either way starters can be a B!tch
good luck with it.
