I have a 1988 gl1500 goldwing. my headlight only works when it is in reverse. I checked fuses and relays all are ok. there is no power at headlights except when in reverse. Can anyone help?

You could have a bad Start/Reverse switch or a bad switch on the Reverse Lever or wiring problems at the associated switches.

A couple hours after I posted I started playing with the starter switch moving in and out and it started working. Thanks for the help.

When you press the starter button in the headlight goes off so you get all the power to the battery to start the bike, you might try spraying contact cleaner in the starter button,

Thank you Joe, that was going to be my next recommendation.
