Mazer, I presume you are talking about a 1200 GoldWing? If so that bike doesn't have a starter solenoid. What operates the starter on the 1200 is a starter relay. (a starter solenoid is attached to the side of thestarter & moves the starter drive into engagement with the flywheel).Fell victim to the electrical problem they have. 4 wires coming off solenoid, green one goes where? It is shorting out the circuit but can't find the origin. Thanks
mazer , no problem on the starter relay confusion.Sorry about the confussion on the starter relay, not the most handy person. It is a green wire with a red strip. It is in the back set of two next to the yellow wire. The two wires in front are red and red/white. When I try to connect the green/red wire it arcs and will blow the fuse if connected. I'm sure the grren/red is shorting out somewhere, but don't know what it goes to. It is a 1984 Aspencade. Thanks for all the help, first goldwing!!
That green/red wire is supposed to be shorted to ground (either through the clutch switch or trans neutral switch) so if you are blowing fuses with it connected you probably have a failed starter relay.When I try to connect the green/red wire it arcs and will blow the fuse if connected. I'm sure the grren/red is shorting out somewhere
