Question about 1981 Honda GL 1100 Innerstate Gold Wing

2 Answers

Just ended up with an 81 GL1100. I can turn the motor over manually for a short revolution and then it stops. I have to then reverse the direction and again it stops. The starter will not turn it over. Should I be looking in the engine or transmission?

It is either because your valves are bent and they are hitting the piston or because the timing on the over head cam is off take of the head and check the valves

Engine, definitely, assuming you had it in neutral.
Maybe the main bearing is seized.

I have 81 Goldwing rode to my mom's and got ready to go went to crank it and it won't do nothing at all the fuses seem good no lights or anything will come on any ideas?


Sounds like a flat battery? Test the battery with a bulb and a piece of wire.

Does the Goldwing have an anti-theft system? If that was stopping you, the lights would normally work.

Hooked brake lights up and it stopped starting and all lights stopped working when u turn key on i got new battery and rectafifer on it


Hi, Steve and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
