1985 1200 Goldwing Aspencade won't start

Post by swheeler58 » Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:14 pm

I bought this bike last summer. Was told it needed head gaskets relplaced so I had that done. I was having problems trying to start the bike. The starter would turn over and over and over. Every now and then I would get a big bang backfire. The day I got the bike back from getting the new headgaskets it started right up. I washed the bike and rode about 20 miles and then parked it. The bike hasn't started since. When I push the start button I hear a clicking to the right of the battery. I think this is the silenoid (sp?) When I push the start button it clicks and is magnetized while the start button is pushed. Do I need a new silenoid or do I have other problems?

It could be the solenoid. Have a look at this post to see how to narrow down where your problem lies.
