Change out this Ignition Relay. It is for a 1980 thru 82 Wing.It MAY Solve the Problem. (Pic is a little blurred) It is under the false gas tank, on the left front side of the Wing. It also will control the vetter faring. Sorry about tht typo. My mouse is acting up, and will not let me do anything with it.

Good Luck,

Not a very good picture but an 1100 wing does not have an ignition relay. I think that is the suspension light control unit.:baffled:

yup yup....starter relay is the round doo hickie on the battery side of the bike located just to the front of the battery (follow the positive battery cable to it).... If you think it's the starter relay, turn on the key and hit the start button... You should hear a slight "click" as the relay energizes. If you hear a click but nothing happens, whack it with a hammer with the start button depressed (I'm not kidding!) =) I've gotten them to work like that before. =) If still nothing, check voltage at the relay output. No voltage with key on= dead relay/ dead battery, starter button failure or ground fault (short)... The relay can get rusty and crusty inside leading to failure. You can rebuild the relay if so inclined. The 4 cylinder Goldwings website has an article about how to rebuild the critter...Click here: http://fourcylinderwings.net/ Good luck, Squirts

Davogd430,

The 1st pic is for the Ignition relay. When the kill switch main fuse, and ignition switch will not work, this is probably the culprit if/after ther soleonid.starter has been ruled out. My 80 has one. There 80-81 have 2 that has different numbers. It is "L" Shaped.I took my extra one to Honda, and he looked it up.Most mount in front of the ignitors in a square rubber holder that is easily broken, so be careful even just disconnecting it.

That is NOT an ignition relay, it is the rear air suspension light controller, 1100s DO NOT have an ignition relay.

William86,

No problems. I just posted these about 6 months ago, andI got no replies, I was bored, with nothing to do, so Friday I took both to Honda, and the man looked up the part numbers and told me. I was just passing along the info. Funny though. I like constructive critism, but if anyones ever wrong, you get many replies.I was just passing along what the man atHonda told me.
