Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

These are generally on the same fuse and run through a voltage stabilizer to stop fluctuation due to charging, could be the stabilizer that's gone faulty.

Could still have a carb problem. Have you changed the fuel filter? That is always the first thing to do. Running on could also indicate a timing problem. How about the timing belts? have the been looked at lately? They may be stretch a bit or loose. Should not have to use premium in a Goldwing.

Sounds like one or both tires are howling. Has to do with either tread wear or even just tread design.

Do the shocks hold air? If they do, I see no problem. The shock go contain a bit of oil.

You have either a blown fuse, broken wire or bad electrical connection.

Do just that.

Check the kill switch, change fuel filter, check to see if fuel pump is getting power and check to see if fuel pump is creating pressure.

Down low on right side behind side cover. The location is at the rear of the foot brake pedal where the pedal is connected to the shaft. It is just inside the side cover.

Change the brake master cylinder seals and re- bleed, a starting point at least.

how cold when this happens? is the choke adjusted properly, is the battery in good shape and spins the engine fast, weak battery is single biggest cause of hard starting in cold weather, if the battery is good it really zings the motor fast. are u using the proper grade of fuel and the fuel is fresh? using higher Octane than recommended will cause a hard start in colder weather. This advice comes from 45 years of owning and repairing my own Japanese bikes.

This has been an issue for ALL Goldwing's (1000, 1100, 1200, 1500, and probably 1800's). It does not hurt anything. If you center stand you cycle it will never happen. but all Goldwing's are known to let out a puff of smoke if left on the side stand. The oil may be leaking past your piston rings and not your stem seals. If you want to change your stem seals you need to put the cylinder on top dead center compression stroke, remove the spark plug, screw in an air hose from your air compressor to pressurize your cylinder, with air pressure hold the valves in place compress the valve springs with a valve spring compressor, remove the parts (washer, cotter keys,and springs), pry off the seal, pop on the new one and reassemble. It is a lot easier living with the puff of smoke, Happy Trails.

Your starter solenoid is stuck in the closed position. It provides a direct source of electricity to the starter. You will need to replace the starter solenoid under the side cover. Follow the positive battery cable from the battery to locate the starter solenoid. Part #12 or #13 on the following diagram. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1993-honda-gl1500a-gold-wing-aspencade/o/m2359#sch35062
