OK, but it is only a bandaid. You might as well resolve yourself that you are going to have to repair or replace it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

Dave I completely agree its just like my 52 chevy whack the started and it may start 20 more times but in reality it failed for a reason. and the end is near however I was pleased to find definitive evidence that the starter is the problem.

I am going to sell this bike and keep the 2010 so I will need to get it repaired before I can sell it cuz i could not do that to a fellow rider.
I cant afford a new honda starter 600.00 but what do you think about aftermarket starters.
Looks like 100-150 for a new one.
any idea what a shop might charge to install a replacement labor only.
Or your estimate of hours to complete.I think do it myself would exceed my ability.
Maybe I will rethink that after getting an estimate.

Thanks for your coaching.

Brian

I wouldn't dream of putting an aftermarket starter in it because of the difficulty of getting to it(not for me but for novices). Because they seldom fail yours might just need cleaning or look for a used one. Can't say what it would cost to have a shop do the work. I would guess 3 to 5 hours.

Why not sell the bike "as is" and be up front about the starter issue. The buyer may be up for the challenge of "remove-repair-replace". He may not consider it a challenge at all.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Brian, I used the whack trick on an alternator once (2013) when 600 miles from home. The brushes were stuck. Made it home just fine.

Agree, your comments might help someone stranded (with a no start condition).

save this thread maybe it can help someone stranded .

ok perhaps this is only a band aid but someone could make it home after a failure.

Dennis new plan is to sell the bike as is with full disclosure about the starter and I plan to include a used starter with the purchase along with starter replacement instructions from this forum.
I will offer to pay half or replacement cost at My mechanic shop.Should it fail within a 1 year period.
I think thats fair
I now have about 60 starts on this starter since the problem. Sorry I love to hear it turn over.

My local guy said that his opinion is that a brush was stuck and the shock dislodged it and that it should be just fine.


ok so now it is 2005 Goldwing for sale 6900 with 58k miles and new tires brakes oil and differental lube synthetic in both.
bright yellow.

other bike to sell is 2014 street glide 16000 miles 14500 its absolutely mint but cant keep up with the goldwings with that little 103 engine,

My replacment is the identical bike 2010 with navi abs and prem audio.



Sometimes I do make mistakes and I always am the firsrt to admit it. we are all human.

I once bought a ford truck for pennys of its actual value.
This guy thought he was taking advantage of me and was quite a smart alec about the tranaction.
he said the engine had froze up I paid hem 150.00 for the truck he thought he got a great deal............
he was quite suprised when I cut the alternator belt, started the truck right up and drove away.
The alternator had froze up not the engine.

have a great day.......... im riding now

Brian,

Several years back my nephew had a 1972 Dodge Colt. You could try to jump start it but it would not run. There were no battery or fuel issues. The alternator was bad.....!!

On that particular vehicle, they would not run with a bad (shorted) alternator.

This stumped a few "so called mechanics". I replaced the alternator and all was well.

I like that deal you made on the truck.....!!

Dennis a note about honesty and motorcycle riders.

I have a newer goldwing 2010 its mint and has just turned 20k
Bought it from a guy about 80 miles from my home .Thats why I have two wings ,

price was 9500 cash the bike was stunning and even though i offered less this guy made me pay the full 9500. CASH
drove the bike home with a big smile on my face.
When i got home i had a text message from the seller.

" you paid me 1000.00 over the asking price Did you mean to do that'

i can send you a check or you can come back and get the cash.

I quickly made the trip back and he had the cash I told him how much that means to me .

I have the utmost respect for that guy Dave as had he not called and been honest about it I never would have given it a second thought.

We need more Daves in this world.
