electrical problem

Post by ronyoung642 » Tue Jun 28, 2016 1:55 pm

I have an 81 Honda 1100 Goldwing. When I go over 40mph the headlight and front blinkers quit working. Totally stumped on this one. Any suggestions

is this one of those "speed of light" problems? :lol:

I suspect a bad ground.Look at your high beam indicator when it quits.See if it still comes on.
The power and ground for the front lights pass through a interconnect plug in the lower left inside of the faring..Mine corroded the ground.
