1984 GL 1200a

Post by Wannaridemybike01 » Sat Aug 18, 2018 6:40 am



Got the bike, and was supposed to run. Got it home bought a new battery. And went to get it to run. Crank, crank crank, nothing. Kept trying moving things around still nothing Cranks good. Then somehow grounded out the right wire a fired up. Of course this is the fuel pump wire, so runs like 2 cylinders. One day I just took the grounded wire off, And Wanna, ran like a caffa bike. Stronger than _----_. Now it runs like that if it runs by itself. But only when it wants to. You never know. Kill Switch? Also found out fuse box wasn't even powered or grounded. Please help me!

I think the 'kill' switch might need to be taken apart and cleaned, could be the culprit.
