88 GL1500 reverse

When you actuate the reverse lever the neutral light extinguishes and the reverse light illuminates 2-3 seconds later the revesre light extinguishes and the starter doesn't spin when depressed. I'm not a Honda tech and I have no reference material. Where do I start?

The motorcycle does start and run and all other systems are functional.

The cable actuating the reverse is known to stretch, and the result can be switches that are not properly actuated. If you shift it into reverse, and hold the lever hard back in reverse (instead of letting it go), does the light stay on?
