Hello
I recently bought a 1981 Goldwing. It looks pretty clean but I know nothing about it's history, It didn't come with a key so I pulled the ignition switch and took it to a locksmith and had a key made. After reinstallation I kept my fingers crossed when I turned the switch to the on position. No start, no crank, no starter relay click, no lights, no power whatsoever. When I checked the main 30a fuse it crumbled into several pieces. I thought I had found the problem but when I installed a new one I got the same result, nothing. I pulled the relays in order to better clean it and found another dogbone fuse, also bad, connecting the 2 large posts on top of the relay. I have seen nothing about 2, 30 amp fuses. associated with the starter relay. So, what's up? Has it been incorrectly installed there or should be replaced with a new on. I'd appreciate any thoughts not only on this but what other things could cause a no power issue. Oh the battery is brand new .and all the other fuses are good.
Thanks

First of all, welcome to the forum.

Were you ever able to find the problem?

Sorry I missed your post as well. Welcome to the forum. Many owners of the older bikes say replacing the dog bone fuses with modern blade style fuses in a new fuse holder is a must do item.
