Question about 1975 Honda GL 1000 (K1)
I own three GL1000 cycles. After fussing with the points all three now have Dyna electronic ignitions. The difference is worth the price around $200. But to your problem. When replacing points Honda sells a plate assembly with everything on it (saves time plus you get all new screws and wires to the condenser). The condensers have always been a problem with all Honda point systems. Did you install a new condenser ? Also when installing puts it is easy to ground them out. You may have to go through the whole process again to get your spark back. I believe the problem you are having is with your starter solenoid . You need a new solenoid. But for now, take off your left side cover and jump the solenoid with a piece of wire , a screw driver , jumper cable clamp, etc. You may also want to solder in a push fuse to replace the old tube fuse which at this age can be a source of aggravation when you have to wiggle the wires to get the bike to power up.
