I didn't take the starter button apart yet I did open the throttle side clam shell and sprayed a lot of electrical contact cleaner in there for now.

Re: Electrics - Starter Motor

I recently had a similar problem. You seldom here of the starter going bad. I replaced the A & B relays for the starter and cleaned the starter button. Problem solved. My bike has 178k miles.

I believe any 1500 engine will fit but I would get the latest one with the least miles you can.

Re: +goldwing 1800 will not turn over

Ok. Are the lights going out when you hit the starter button. If they do and they should the clicking is the headlight relay de-energizing. Do you here the fuel pump prime itself when the key is turned on ? Have you tried starting it with the clutch pulled in? If this works could be neutral switch. ...

I have a T valve on the rear of my 15 and a custom t valve on the front tire so I don't have to remove either sensor to add air.

Re: +goldwing 1800 will not turn over

I wouldn't think the starter would be bad because of the age of the bike bu g I guess it could happen.
Also the starter could be stuck. Put the bike in gear and rock it back and forth. This may help. I'm just looking at the easy stuff first.

I would probably put matching tires on and then the next set go with dunlop E3 or E4. But I'm a dunlop guy anyway.
