2000 gl1500 se won't start

Postby beensht » Fri Mar 19, 2010 3:36 pm



i was riding yesterday and the neutral light quit working. when i shut it off it won't start back. i can jump the solenoid by the battery and it starts and runs fine. i can't find a bad fuse or relay and the kill switch is working properly. any ideas ?

Is the solenoid clicking when you press the starter button?

Is there power getting to the solenoid coil when you hit the starter button?

I have the same issue all the time. Just haven't had a chance to get it fixed. A few raps up and down on the lever and she is good for another month or so.
