I wish I knew what fixed it, but I am thinking it was the sidestand switch. It is very touchy in its position.
Have you cleaned the sidestand switch?
Or cleaned out and greased the sidestand pivot bolt?(very necessary maintenance item- full disassembly)

Re: Starting issue

Thanks everyone that gave me answers to this problem. After the the bike was serviced, oil and filter and air filter changed. The bike was on its kickstand (indicator illuminated), in neutral (indicator illuminated) and clutch out it started. So I don't have an issue any longer. What fixed it then?...

Re: Air suspension???

First off if you have the single Showa air shock and the other is the coilover shock then yes at 89 you probably have blown the seal in the air shock. The manual says more like 50 psi max on the Showa. If you have Progressive brand replacement air shocks,(??? You didn't say what you have on the bike...

Re: replacing stator

I am not yet 100% sure it is the stator. I did take a multimeter and disconnect the negative cable and then measured the amps which came back as .01 which would tell me there is not a constant draw on it. I took the battery off, recharging it and when I get it started back up will put the multimete...

Re: 1984 1150 GL Turn signals slow to come on

You may also need to clean your turn switch. The contacts get dirty.

On the flasher, just get an electronic flasher at an auto parts store to replace the old thermal type flasher, that way if you or someone wants to put in LED turn bulbs(saves draw on the stator) they will flash at the correct rate.

Re: 1984 1150 GL Turn signals slow to come on

Turn signal flasher is under the shelter on left side.

BTW you have a gl1200 if it is an 84. Not a gl1150(no such animal).
1983 was the end of the gl1100.

And to add to that there have been folks that have taken the dressed parts off the Aspencade and Interstate and made them look like a naked Standard so vin identification is necessary.

Re: gl1000 and gl1100 gas tanks

I'm pretty sure the frames are the same on the 1000 to 1200 so, the tanks should fit unless they did some changes that I don't know. I don't think they are interchangeable between models. There were 2 different gas tanks on the 1000. The early ones have a drain bolt. The 1100s have a different tank...

Re: 2008 charging circuit have a fuse?

If the cruise control fuse is blown, it will not charge. Check the cruise light on the dash, if it is not on with the cruise switch on, you may have a short in the harness running up the handle bar risers or around the headstock. If the fuse is blown, turn off the cruise, replace the fuse, then see...

Re: 2008 charging circuit have a fuse?

No 1800 experience here, but if you can measure power on the back of the alternator at the main terminal whatever fuse link the 1800 has is good. Then measure power on the small (excite) lead to the alternator, that should have power with key "on". I can't imagine an 1800 alternator not being repai...
