Will not crank over

Post by Mfd154 »



Got a deal on a couple 83 Goldwing 1100's. One w a blown motor and one that was parked 2 years ago. Had new key made since guy gave me wrong key, changed oil and plugs, installed new battery and put fresh gas in. First time trying to start bike the solenoid clicked and started whined. After a couple times of trying the starter wire smoked and started melting at the starter. I checked connection and found stud rusted bad. Could not break nuts free. So i took starter off parts bike and now all i get is the selenoid clicking. Parts bike starter bad also?

Might have found answer in an earlier post... used jumper cables to bypass selenoid and bike was turning over. Going to order a new selenoid.
