You could always take your starter into your local auto electrical shop and have it rebuilt.

yep
Here you go!

Also add a wire between the brush plate and a small nut and bolt through the end cone, this will create a much better ground and solve many problems with a slow starter.

You do not need to pull the engine either, just drop the header pipe and remove one stud.

i order that kit....have see hit the last time on e-bay..... 8)

i saw on a forum that 85-86-87 1200 gl : that there are no problem to pull out the starter because there a piece of metal to avoid chain and sprocket to drop in the bottom of the engine.

i dont know about the 84....maybe that s why they say to putt the bike on the side stand instead of central stand....

is it true that 1200 gl 84 you must be carefull when pulling that starter? Confusedhock:

thanks :YMAPPLAUSE: :YMAPPLAUSE:
Did you get this done?

>>>>>I was cruising the net the other day and I saw rebuilt starters by a cycle shop on E-BAY--CYCLE CELLAR in Uxbridge MA. Had the starters specifically for the 1984 1200!!! Asing about $389 or thereabout and wanted your old core for rebuildability and then it netted out at $199!!!Hope thihs may be of some aid...

ps has cam belts for less than $30 a set and I spoke with the proprietor, Jim, and told me they are definitely Gates belts, so they are not some hung-kung-foo-charleys that are rebranded...

i have the $20 kit for rebuid the starter
I have a 1984 Interstate and need to rebuild my starter. In order to start my bike when she is hot, I open the throttle before I hit the starter button and she lights up. Only a work around, but the starter still should be rebuild.
As far as the gear falling out, HONDA forged two fingers to help keep the gear from being pushed away when inserting the starter. Keeping the bike on the center stand will minimize the chance of having the gear swing away from the starter hole. Use care and caution when reinserting the starter, that’s all.

I also see the suggestion from UNIONJACK to: ‘add a wire between the brush plate and a small nut and bolt through the end cone, this will create a much better ground and solve many problems with a slow starter.’ (thanks unionjack)

Sounds like sound advice. (sorry, that was bad)
I am sure unionjack just wants us all to get ‘a good spin’ on our starter rebuilds (again, a bad pun)
I need to stop procrastinating and get ‘started’ on the rebuild. (it is late in my day!!)

When I get some time, or when it gets too difficult to start hot, I will rebuild my starter. Ideally, I would like to get another, rebuild it and just do a parts swap. If I do not find a second starter, I will just do the rebuild and install in one sitting.

You can safely remove and reinstall the starter on a 1984 GL1200 because the factory provided a means to keep the sprocket and chain in place. I know that for certain because I have an 84 and have tried to knock the chain and sprocket out of place with the starter out but it cannot be done.

2 places to get the 84 starter rebuild kit:

Thanks Vic!

Do you have a preference?

I found a total rebuild kit for the '84 starter last year at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.stockers-ems.com">http://www.stockers-ems.com</a><!-- m --> but they were bought out by EMS found at http://www.stockers.com

'84 starters are hard to find and you can't buy a new one unless you are independently wealthy
