Intermittent Starting Problem

Hello all, I just bought a very nice 1986 GL1200 Interstate. However I have discovered that it will not start all of the time. It always turns over, last time it started it ran for two minutes and shut down like someone turned it off. I read another article about the pulse generator could be bad on it. I will try checking that out in the mean time.

If it's shutting down like that when it gets warm, it's typically either the pulse generators or the dogbone (master) fuse - I'd be betting on the pulse generators.

Nope, doesn't matter if its warm or cold. I am going to have to start testing...Almost acts like a broken circuit.

You might also want to check the condition of your kill switch.
