Re: Starting issue

Sorry Mike, yea GPS = gear position switch/sensor. This bike has a unique failure mode, I’ve seen failures of the RRA, reverse regulator assembly, but they have been different than this one. It’s fun when one of the diodes shorts in it and no longer isolates a ground and let’s it get to the wrong c...

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. When it wasn’t work...

Re: Starting issue

I wish I knew what fixed it, but I am thinking it was the sidestand switch. It is very touchy in its position. Doubt it, the side stand has to provide the ground in the up position or the engine will die as soon as you put it into gear and it is the source of the ground that the clutch lever sends ...

Re: Starting issue

In looking at the simplified starting dagram, it appears that there is something left out but it is just a smiplified diagram. There has to be a path for ground to starter relays A and B. It would appear that ground is supplied through the Reverse Relay but the contacts should be closed or maybe th...

Re: Starting issue

I have looked in many different places and have yet to see this problem addressed. I am working on a friends 2001 1800. It starts only with the clutch pulled in. When the side stand is up and in neutral it will not start unless the clutch is engaged. I have looked at the wiring diagrams and don't s...

Re: Reverse Dash Light Flashing

Hi Techdude2000, Thanks for the clarification on this switch and how it works. The only reason I called it a "Neutral Switch Assembly" was thats what Honda Powersports OEM parts Fiche calls it as shown in this pdf. However I would suspect you have more knowledge than me on the correct discription, ...

Re: Reverse Dash Light Flashing

Good catch, just for clarity, the switch on the block with the rubber cover is the reverse switch, it grounds the wire when not in reverse and removes the ground when reverse is engaged. The gear position switch in the front engine cover handles the neutral functions. :D

Re: '06 GL1800 power failure

Alternator voltage should be at 14V or more with the engine at 2500 rpm. It does sound like a bad connection on the battery, or a bad battery. Double check the terminals for corrosion on the backsides of the cable plates and make sure the bolts didn’t bottom out before tightening up the cables.

The ECM has nothing to do with the gauges, it only runs the engine and turns on the FI light if the FI system has a problem.

It sounds like a loose connection behind the dash.
I agree or at the connectors under the left fairing pocket, in the white frame.

Re: GL1800 Speedometer/Odometer reading

A couple of things to note about the clutch system. It’s oil pressure assisted and anything that will make that oil pressure lower can cause it to slip. As Greg would advise, use only the Honda oil filter due to some others restricting oil flow too much and use the recommended oil viscosity. There i...

I do have the old gauge cluster, one of the few things that I have not tossed when I replaced it! Just dug it out of storage, will examine the circuit board. Old one did not indicate on any gauge. investigated the sensors, they all led us to believe that the problem was in the cluster. Since it is ...

Thank you for your response. No. The engine light indicator comes on STEADY, after I start cranking the engine.
