    Goldwing Non Starter

    Went to start the Wing , plenty of battery strength but no go . Any thoughts? It's in neutral but would it be stuck in gear while sitting. Any advice would be great

    You have tried rocking it back and forward, in gear, to turn engine over ?

    I think more info will be needed ie 1000/1100/2200/1500/1800 does it turn over ? Is it sparking, what about fuel.

    Having never done this myself obviously, the kill switch is set to run ???

    It's 1500 , I did check the kill switch, will need to strip the Tupperware but I have no room to move , it's a tight squeeze with the GS . If I push it out I won't get her back in , that's why I have the reverse gear , let it do all the hard work.

    She turns over but that's it . Would a blown fuse stop her starting?

    So its turning over but not firing...?
    How long since it was last run?
    How old is the petrol?

    If it has carbs and the usual Honda fuel pump setup run via a relay, the pump won't run until the engine actually runs (or at least cranks).
    Drain the carbs, use a jumper wire from the battery to the fuel pump + feed to prime the carbs & see if that does it.

    FWIW I prime the carbs on any bike that has stood a while, wether pumped or gravity fed.
