GL 1100 aspencade 1982

Bike starts and runs ok, but when you shut it off it won't turn over. Had battery checked, pulled starter and had rebuilt. Put 50 amp charger on and 10 minutes later it starts. Almost acts like it has to much compression. any ideas?

Given what you said could be Hydro lock?? gas filling cylinders; easy to check when you have the problem take plugs out and turn her over.with the run switch on off..if not spark/gas equal boom and fire!!! If gas shoots out of the cylinders = gas leaking into them when you shut her off..means bad float needles or floats set wrong or leaking o ring or plenum gasket..turning the petcock off just before you turn her off will stop the issue if your petcock is working properly. I guess if you turn the petcock off before you stop the engine and the problem goes away..reread the or's cause one of them is causing hydro lock. Note if that's true it can bend a rod...

Ps if true change your oil it's full of gas!!! and will burn your bearings.

Note turning the petcock off is a good habit to get into..anyway.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83

FAIR WINDS,
