05 GL1800 Won't Start

Postby NCKayaker » Wed Oct 16, 2013 10:22 am

2005 - GL 1800 - 51K miles
Normal start one day last week... rode about 10 miles. Tried to restart.... hit starter... starter never turns... headlight goes out.

Bike in neutral, kill switch good, fuses good, side stand switch good, reverse NOT activated, put new battery in.... no change in symptom. Any thoughts?
Rode it from NC to Alaska in July... not even a hiccup in 10K.

Sounds like you have a loose battery cable neutral side I would say. Their are three point to check. You may have to get a manual to find all the contact points. Need to tighten up the contacts. Good luck.

It sounds like you need a starter switch cleaning.
