My 1984 GL 1200 while on a long run the engine started to cut out sputtering; I also notice my rear brake light had come on steady, the gear selector flashed on/off intermittently I pulled over and turn key to off position. Turn key on and no lights nothing. How ever I was able to pop start and drive home. Thank God I had my Honda Goldwing lol:raspberry:
Now to find the fix any ideas what when wrong?

There is a FACTORY recall concerning the ignition switch on the 84 GL1200's. You might take the VIN number to a dealer to see if they can look up the information if the recall has already been performed.
If you need I have info. PM me if you need it.
