Re: GL1800 Start Issue

Thanks for all your help. I finally got my Goldwing fixed. What I found was the issue was the Fuel Sending unit and fuel pump was bad. Replace both and starts right up.D3210414-33B9-4FC2-8C1F-F7445F69654A.jpegE5FAD85F-958C-422E-9A3F-A4ACFBADC804.jpeg68526AD3-6271-47B2-A4B8-B48B9A7F8549.jpeg68526AD3...

Re: 2003 Frame defect

These small tube cracks are not part of any recall and Honda won’t do anything about them. Best thing to do is swap the frame with a 2005 or newer frame that was strengthened in these areas.

Re: 2003 complete restauration

The recall for the frame issues never included these small tube fractures, only the lower crossmember welds and joints. Honda won’t do anything about them, hitch or no hitch. Good luck with your rebuild. Yep, the weld failed, and you decide to change frames(?) Damn.. why not simply re-weld the brok...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

Ok, since you are seeing the FI light coming on for a second or two, then the bank angle sensor is OK and the ECM is getting power for its power on test. You need to take a voltmeter and check the fuel pump connector for power while you see the FI light turned on. If you find battery power at it for...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

I do not see an FI on my screen but I do not hear the fuel pump. The FI light is at the bottom of the speedometer gauge. If you don’t see it come on, then there’s an issue with the FI system and that will keep the pump from running. Have you checked for any blown fuses? Have you pulled the seat off...

Re: GL1800 Start Issue

I have an GL1800 2003 with 31188miles on it and it has not been rode in 5 years. I removed the fuel tank and washed it out with new gas and reinstalled. Put in new air filter, changed oil and filter and changes out coolant from green to blue. The issue I have now is that the bike will not start. It...

Hi 2003cobra. This is a new to me 1800. There is a recall for that problem. 2001-2004 are included in this recall. But the previous owner had a hitch on the bike and mother Honda don’t want to pass it on warranty. So he sold it to me very cheap.. The recall for the frame issues never included these...

Re: Starter Problem

Finally I took out the starter and the brushes were slightly used but with a lot of rust, I think because of the humidity of my zone (and 6 months without almost using her). I went to a dealer Honda and I've bought all the parts new. During weekend I'll complete the job. Thank you all, you were ver...

Thank you! I think it could be the brushes, I'll know soon. Just a quick note. When you go to reinstall the starter, DON’T pull it into the engine using the bolts! Use only your hands to turn it until the reverse idler gear and the starter clutch gears engage properly. Using the bolts can cause you...

Re: Starter Problem

I've checked the voltage on the fuses with my voltmeter. Results: Battery 13.6 v RVS A 12.78v RVS B 13.28v RVS Start 13.02v Ok, that indicates that both relays are working, which eliminates lots of other stuff as a possibility. There is a slight chance it could be a loose connection on the B starte...

Re: Starter Problem

Were at the battery post. I'll try to check the cable nuts on the relays. Ok, before you wrestle the saddlebag loose, check the voltage on the fuse. If you don’t read power on the RVS A fuse, then do the same test on the RVS B fuse. Keep in mind the power should be on them only while the key is on ...

It looks like everything is on. I can change channels on both cb and radio. My buddy can hear me key the cb but can't hear me talk. No sound out of speakers for radio.
Ok, try removing two fuses, wait 10 minutes then reinsert them, Battery Fuse and ACC. Fuse. This will reset the system.

Anything else not working, like the trunk release or the clock resetting it’s time after you cycle the key off and back on?

Is there any way to speed up reverse? It is painfully slow. I Am a first time owner of a 2007 GL1800 Trike.
Only thing you can do is rev the engine a little to make the alternator keep the voltage up while backing up. It won’t go much faster, but it also won’t hurt.

Re: Turn Signals Only Not working - 2002 GL1800

This is the position light relay and has nothing to do with the turn signals flashing or not. Sounds like your cancel unit has died or has a bad connection on its connector at the top of the steering stem. If you search for “dead turn signals” at Gl1800riders.com, there’s lots of threads about the p...
