A friend has a 1988 Goldwing and the kill-switch went bad. We have it by-passed now but he would like to replace the assembly. I can find them used but they say they fit 89-96. What is different about the 88? They look the same, I'm wondering if the wiring harness is different... that could be remedied easily enough. Anyone had this problem?



Thanks,



Jim

One thing to check would be to go to an online parts source like hondapartsnation.com or bike bandit and see if the part numbers are the same,

Are the part numbers for the'90 the same as the '89 or have they changed too? Standard only.

(SE and I will be different)

The part number for the 89 supposedly fits the 89 and 90 goldwing and the Aspencades through 96.

I don't know when they implemented it, but at some point the kill switch would keep theengine from turning over, as if the battery was dead. And I have no idea if that change was in the switch or farther down the wiring.

Try Whiteys. He may have what you need.
