85 GL1200 Limited edition

Hi guys, New to the gold wing life, Happy to be a part of it, I have a 1985 Honda GL 1200 Limited edition, Starts right up sometimes runs great...shut it off, and sometimes will not start at all..sometimes let it sit and starts right back up, was running i revved it up and it quit, hasnt started since ..couple days ago, just cranks over...any suggestions before I tear into it?..Maybe Pulse Generators?.... I'm not sure going to check the plug ins today...? any and all comments will be appreciated....

could be a few things. I would start with cleaning the kill switch real good.

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

The L has the capability of running codes. Do that FIRST. Possible sensor/Pg concern.
Bike...and Dennis likes this.

Libraries are full of stuff I don\'t know.

There is a black box underneath the trunk. On the left hand side you should see a series of LEDs. This is where you should see the code patterns.
