2005 - GL 1800 - 51K miles
Normal start one day last week... rode about 10 miles. Tried to restart.... hit starter... starter never turns... headlight goes out.
:?:
Bike in neutral, kill switch good, fuses good, side stand switch good, reverse NOT activated, put new battery in.... no change in symptom. Any thoughts?
Rode it from NC to Alaska in July... not even a hiccup in 10K.
H E L P!!!!!

It could be a starter Solenoid or the start switch which has 2 contacts, 1 shuts off lights, 1 activates the Solenoid.
Have you tried a rolling bump start or jump starting off a car battery (car not running or you'll fry your electronics)
