Won't start

Post by blly4089 »



I have a 2003 gl1800 it was running fine. I parked it covered it, sat for about 2 weeks went out to start it and it won't start. Battery is good with 12.5 volts engine turns over I can hear and feel fuel pump run also relay switch. The F1 comes on when I turn on power then goes off. But now oil light stays on. Oil is full. I don't understand why it won't start it was running fine when I parked it. Anyone have any ideas

Have you tested the battery while cranking. If you have a bad cell, it may drop too low for the bike to start. I believe it wants 11.3 while cranking for the PCM to allow starting.
