Location of second solenoid

Post by Coman123 »



I have a 1995 Goldwing 1500
Today the start button just clicks, the headlight temp
Goes out
I can jump the 2 terminals on the solenoid that is just to the right of the battery and it starts fine
Neutral light is on and works when I put it into reverse neutral goes out
My question is where is the second solenoid located

Down below the oil fill cap.

Jumpering the first one triggers the second one, so looks like the second one is OK. If the first one by the battery clicks when you hit the start button but no starter might need to replace the one by the battery.
