|Jim Tucker||Howdy folks, I know it's been a while. You probably thought I was one of those guys that doesn't follow through but I just got my 86 goldwing back from the shop. It starts immediately now so I assume it is fixed. (for now, fingers crossed.) I suppose the main thing that may have fixed it was the seafoam rinse treatment & oil change but the fuel pump went out while it was in the shop. Maybe it was weak contributing to the problem. Soooo it has a new solenoid, starter checked out OK, new battery, fuel pump & now I'm putting it up for sale since I don't need to keep 2 goldwings. I'm an enthusiast, not a collector. Thanks again for all the helpful advice & happy trails to all.|

Tried the seafoam cleanse, so far, so good. I will report more when I'm convinced it is fixed. I hesitate to put it back up for sale until I'm convinced it is fixed.

I will report what the problem was when it is no longer a problem. The man who is working on it was in an accident a couple of weeks ago and put in 75 hours at his job on the river last week, The Goldwing is in his shop and he will let me know what he finds or when it is fixed. I have to be patient as I can't find anyone else where I live to work on it and I have trouble telling a right hand wrench from a left handed one.

Heard anything new from your mechanic ? - Operator error ? - Bad muffler bearing ? - Leaking Blinker Fluid Reservoir ?
This is such an unusual problem it would be interesting to know what was causing your starter to bind or lock up.....

|Jim Tucker||Not fixed yet. starter is out being checked, repaired or replaced by starter shop. I will report what trouble was when it is fixed. Hoping not to have to tear engine apart.|

Hey Jim - What was the mechanic's final decision on your "sticking or locked up starter problem" ?
|07-17-2019 09:58 AM|
|Jim Tucker||May be more than one problem. I will report more when I know more.|

|Mocchi||Hello: I agree with JK, A Dead Battery and something locked up are two different issues. Could be just miss speaking, I hope it is just the battery for you. Good Luck.|
