1986 Goldwing 1200 will not shut off with key

Postby fireman54 » Sat Aug 04, 2012 4:28 pm



My 1986 Goldwing 1200 will not shut off with the key it will start with the key off but if I turn the kill switch off it kills the lights and shuts it off.
The key does turn the dash gauges on and off but not the motor.

Also the voltage regulator burned up while running.

Help what do I do

Your voltage regulator may be back feeding the ignition system up the black wire.Unplug it and try again.
Solder all the charging system wiring.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12522

Unfortunately I've soldered all my wires so I can't verify this,but it's still possible that the regulator is bad.You might short the 2 red wires together in the harness,This should get the battery volts back into the bile.Either just jump the wires together or plug back on the regulator and cut the black wire off.
Obviously it won't charge.
PM me if I lost you.I can use a phone too. :D
