Try to start my new GL1000 1976

Postby jarvait » Fri Apr 30, 2010 1:20 pm



I bought a 1976 Gl1000. I want to restore it. My batterie is full. All of my electrical device run well. I have no electricity on my spark plug. Do you think my rotor or stator have defects. What is thye problem ? Where i have to explore ?

If the battery is good, and everything else electrical is working, then the problem is not your stator - the only thing the stator is used for is to charge the battery while the bike is running. The bike will run fine even with the stator disconnected.

First off - make sure your kill switch is not turned off!

Could be lots of things start with check your clutch lever connections there is a safety cutoff switch which will stop spark, check kill switch, then check all connections and grounds. remove clean and reattach.

If you have an aftermarket electronic ignition, check where the ignition taps into the wiring harness. Many used scotchguard connectors on the brake light line. The life expectency of those scotchguard connectors is a lot less than the life expectency of a Goldwing.
