starter problems

Postby grouchy1946 » Fri Apr 10, 2009 2:52 pm



!977 GL 1000 , recovered from being buried in a snow bank the entire winter , got everything going I think , but when I try to start it it just draws down the lights . Maybe not enough charge in the battery or maybe there is something wrong with starter circuit. Anybody have any great ideas. This is a guy that rides and is thumbs with electrical

Any help ideas appreciated. :roll:

Happy Easter Rob

Are you getting any kind of click or noise from the solenoid (near left footpeg) when you try to start it?

If you download the "GL1000 1975 to 1979 service manual" (click on the motorcycle in the top left corner), you will see a list of troubleshooting steps to take to identify a starter problem, beginning on page 15-4.

Click on the motorcycle in the top left hand corner of this page, and you'll be taken to the main page which has all the manuals you could ever want to download.
