Hi i just a 78 gl1000. The guy i got it from said it only needed new points. So i replaced them and adjusted them to around .014. The bike now is getting spark and fuel. but will only sputter like it wants to run but only fires a little. I really dont know a lot about goldwings but i heard they are great bikes. Also i got a electonic ignition from the guy but i dont know what all i have to change for it to work. could use some help. thanks

Hey Alex
i got a space shuttle out in California you can buy. All it needs is a new flux capacitor!

But seriously. There are things that need attention with you new to you wing. Go to the Randdak site and find the checklist for starting a goldwing for the first time after a long layup. It has many tips on what to do before you try to start it.
Also the early wings are very cold blooded. If you try to give it throttle while you are starting them they will just stumble and not run. Pull choke out fully and crank engine without touching the throttle till it is idling then slow aplication of throttle a cpl times till it revs up
Have fun with you new win

Did the bike start and run before you replaced the points? What is the model number for the electronic ignition that you have?
