Question about 1984 Honda GL 1200 Gold Wing
If you have 17 volt output, don't even try to start it.
Anything you turn on will get fried.
You must change the regulator before anything else.
The activator and stator you changed are designed to produce voltage and current, not limit it.
That is done by the regulator, through the rectifier.
Here is what you need:
However, you may already have ruined your battery and starter, from the excess voltage. After you change the regulator rectifier, then you can try to start it to verify it only puts out 14.5 now. But if it won't start, you may need a starter and battery.

The battery voltage seems too high when off. Check the calibration on your volt meter for accuracy. Your problem could be a loose battery cable to the solonoid or as a high battery voltage suggusts the battery dead and not holding a charge.

Since the solenoid clicks the starter button works. follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid. Jump the two solenoid posts, if the starter works , you have a bad solenoid. Hold the starter button and gently tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If the starter works you need new brushes. If you take the starter apart and the coils are burnt or the armature is shorted , you need a new starter. When testing an armature you should have continuity between every other brush contact point.
