Well at this point if you having a problem because the cable is connected i suggest you remove the starter and cable then work on getting the nut of on the work bench its only a small nut when you have it out on the work bench take a fine toothed hack saw and carefully cut almost through the nut then use a small chisel and small ball peen hammer to split it you dont want to damage the post if your going to rebuild it.

1978 goldwing


I have only experienced this phenomenon after reassembling a CX500. Unfortunately I had to take the rear cover off to fix it. There is a small spring that attaches to the gear changer mechanism that holds two opposed quarter gears in position. In my instance, when reassembling the gears became misaligned. You put it all back together, step it into first and the bike locks in first gear (disassembly required). I think in your case the spring has broken causing the same final result. It is possible that you have a bent shift fork, or other damage, unfortunately disassembly will be require to diagnose the problem. As I recall there are some removable inspection covers on the GL1000. A knowledgeable mechanic may be able to diagnose through the inspection covers.

Sounds like the charging circuit is breaking down causing a strain on the alternator and making the motor struggle.If it picks up on the throttle then this may be the case.
Check all the earth connections as these have a habbit of corroding and causing a high resistance.

1981 honda goldwing wont start


while trying to start an engine, and only the solenoid clicks, there are these 3 things- no juice from the battery, starter corroded contacts(the big cables) or starter is shot. so first make sure the battery is charged, next make sure the cable mounts from battery to starter are clean(no rust), if that is all good and doesnt start , remove starter and have it tested.
