The GL1200 is equipped with a hydraulic clutch. Make sure the reservoir is full and bleed the system. If that does not make the clutch work you may have to rebuild the master cylinder and buy new o-rings for the clutch slave cylinder . Then you should get enough pressure in the system to operate the clutch.

Often a wet clutch that has sat for years will have the plates stuck together. One way to try freeing them off is to put the bike into first gear with it on the centre stand and **** the back wheel backwards and forwards. Sometimes the only way is to remove the whole clutch plate pack and clean it

Neutral safety switch problems 1992


Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

This is obviously a clutch issue. IIRC, Goldwing has a hydraulic clutch, so I'd start by bleeding it (especially if the oil in it is older than two years). Other than that, you'll need a mechanic to check it out.
