Denver winger I took a shortcut.

I slipped a socket extension in behind the reverse cable assembly on the 1800 you can just barely see the starter housing from there .
gave it a rap with the hammer pushed the start button she started right up.
Now I have restarted it i would say 40-50 times pops right off . My local Gold wing guru says he thinks I had a brush hung up.
His opinion was that it is unlikely it will do it again any time soon.

Although if it does I have printed out the starter removal instructions from this forum and if it does that again i will replace the starter with a used e bay one but a real Honda starter.
At this point I am glad I tried an old trick from the 60s.

thanks for your comments.

you just unhung one of the starter motor brushes.


it will hang up again. you have delayed the replacement/repair is all.


pull the starter, clean it up, install new brushes, and go ride.

You might well be right but yet another possibility is that the jarring moved something just enough to improve the faulty connection (if that is the issue) and now that surface has burned itself to a point where it is back to the same issue again. Sounds strange but I remember a 66 Chev I had would act up. Just dead. You could hit the battery cable clamp with the palm of your hand and it would go again. That is until one day......you know.

Ok thanks redwing52
it is not my daily bike but as a precaution I think I will order a used starter off e bay inspect and clean it then keep it onhand in case of a failure.

58000 on this bike the Honda starter should last longer than that

Yeah, my 1500 has twice that and works like new.

Dave do you recall the link to instructions for starter removal for the 1800.
I have the link for the air cleaner replacement but lost the one for starter removal.

As far as I know there is no video or instructions other than in the service manual. It's probably never been done enough for someone to do a tutorial.

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

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Not 1 of those goes into how to R&R the starter.
