starter motor help!?!?

Post by ZippyDk » Sun Jun 07, 2015 10:56 am

OK so I have an 81' gl1100. I bought it from a guy who had the starter blow on him. I bought the bike took it out and tried to rebuild it. It was dead so I purchased a new one, hooked it up and she started. Then today I was ridding her and she started to act as if she was going to stall the. She stopped and all I get is a click in the solenoid like when I first got her. Any ideas?

Yes, first I would check the volts to the battery, the battery could be discharging or perhaps old,,, Once the bike is started again check the charging system... 12.6 should start the bike just fine...When it's running it should be like 13.50 to like 14 volts when throttling up.. Something like that...
