New goldwing owner questions

Postby cherokeedad » Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:21 am



Ok here it goes I have read a lot about the stators giving trouble. What my bike is doing is some times it will crank good and other times it will not crank at all it just sits and spins over. I have already checked the kill switch and it is fine. When it does crank it gives one heck of a backfire then it's fine I know this has probably been asked before but I would like some help please it is a 1985 interstate gl1200

Just spinning over indicates that the starter clutch that's inside the engine didn't grab.Mine also would do this.I ran a dose of Sea foam for 100 miles,changed the oil(really gunky) and it never happen again.
It was like the starter wouldn't catch,just spin.
I could bump it 3 or 4 times before it would actually crank the bike
