Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Ltd. Ed. - SE-i Gold Wing
I have an 85 GL1200 aspencade. I've just started having a problem with the engine shutting down while I am riding. When I first took off I rode about a mile and the engine shut down. It started about 5 minutes later. I drove off and a couple of miles later it shut down again. I looked for possible loose wires that I could see without taking anything off and everything looked OK. I then rode another 80 miles with no problem. When I started home I got about 5 miles and the same thing happened again. After a few minutes it started and I rode the 80 miles back home with no more problems. Today I started out and got less than a mile when the engine shut down again. After a couple of minutes it started again and I drove it back home. I have started it and let it Idle for 10 minutes at a time and no problems. When the engine shut down each time the RPM's read 0 even though the bike was in gear and the engine was turning over while it coasted to a stop. I noticed that when I turn off the kill switch while the motor is running it still show RPM's, so I don't think it is in the kill switch circuit. Do you have any ideas of where to look and what to look for? Any help would be appreciated.
