I have never had that problem (starting intermittently) and in my opinion there are too many related devices involved in the starting system to attempt to make an intelligent diagnosis without using a good Gold Wing service manual.Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have a 1993 GL 1500, runs great, but I've started having an intermittent problem starting. Sometimes, I hit the start button and absolutely nothing happens. When I turn the key, all the lights go on, the radio goes on, the bike is in neutral, and side stand down, but the button doesn't make anything happen. After a few tries and some jiggling of the throttle, it finally works. I opened the switch box on the handle and I don't see any corrosion. Is this a problem with the starter or some loose connection? Any help is greatly appreciated.
I recommend a factory Technical Service Manual from Honda for your best results.
If I can be of any assistance don`t hesitate to let me know.
