Anyone know how to bypass the start button on the Rt handlebar cluster. Mine has gone bad, will start when pushed but, push the button & nothing (1997 GL)

You cut into the harness going to the starter button and pull out the wires to the starter and install a second switch..it will not turn off the headlight while you crank..but will start the bike. Or replace the starter pod. Or open it up the contact in there is probably loose..clean and reattach but a very small space and hard to get into. Radio shack has a button that fits into the 1100 starter housing perfectly and replace the stock assembly maybe they have one that fits a 1500??

hers' the 1100 button..radio shack 275-1549
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
