Question about 1997 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing
Any parts store or a Sears or even Walmart should have the battery. It's usually under the seat or a side panel and either has plug in connections or 2- 1/4" nuts and bolts for the cables. Your owners manuel that came with the bike should tell you.

Hearing your problem strikes right at me. My old Jeep Cherokee had the same problem. You have two possible problems, alternator and regulator. Luckily for you, both can be taken to any good sized auto parts store and tested for free:) The reason it dies is that the bike uses electricity to generate sparks at the spark plugs, if you don't have something to resupply the battery(ie:alternator) then it will slowly die(also causing the lights to dim more and more). The alternator could not be charging the battery, or the regulator could be not allowing the alternator to charge the battery.Taking the out could become quite difficult, my GoldWing makes it extremely hard, but the rest of the job should be easy.
Hope this helps

Make sure that the battery terminals are on tight and the battery is fully charged. Your solenoid clicks when you push the starter button, therefore the starter button is good. Jump the two terminal posts on the starter solenoid together, This will send power directly to your starter. If your starter now works you have a bad starter solenoid. Next, hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer, if the starter works now you have bad starter brushes. If something is burnt or damaged inside the starter causing it not to work you will have to replace the starter assembly since the internal parts are not available from Honda (except for the brushes).
