On and off again cruise control

Postby bultacomotorcycles » Tue Sep 01, 2015 3:12 pm



I have a 1992 Honda Goldwing 1500 Aspencade that has an intermittant cruise control problem. Love the bike but getting concerned as to using my cruse. Situation: Sometimes ( Rarely ) - The Cruise on light comes on. Next when I set the cruise it will either work and the light comes on or it will not work at all. I can see the lights go on when I hit the ignition key upon startup but cannot find the problem. The bike has 86,000 miles on it and the switches on the handlebars appear to work correctly. Could it be a bad relay and if so which one? Help.

Easy stuff first. There are switches on the clutch, front and rear brake levers, if they are not working properly it will not set. First, try to set it while applying light outward pressure on the clutch lever, if it does not set try setting it while pushing out with your finger slightly on the front brake lever.
Also the brass spacer on the clutch lever can wear into an oblong shape and cause it not to set.
