Question about 1985 Honda GL 1200 Interstate Gold Wing
Install new spark plugs. Carbon build-up on the nose cone of the plugs is robbing power that would normally be your spark. Inside the starter solinoid, a spark jumps from one contact to the other as the solinoid makes and breaks contact ( starter button pushed in and out ). The moment when this happens, the voltage is increased and the engine fires in spite of the carbon. If new plugs don't fix the problem, chances are a new solinoid will. The internal sparking can pit the solinoid contacts and lower the voltage needed for proper spark.
