    Bought this in 1985 brand new. Rode all over the country and its been sitting for probably 12 years. Blew the dust off last week pushed Goldwing out of the way and while i wait for carb kit filled cylinders with motor oil since I ran out of mystery oil. Will try to roll in gear to turn over and avoid hydro lock. In the mean time i drained clutch and brake reservoirs. Took front calipers off and cleaned out. In anticipation of a crank over and wanting to see lights come on i put a battery in turned the key and its dead. No power at fuse box confirmed with test light. Will have to hunt down a wiring diagram (clymers in my future). Any and all input is appreciated. Will keep you posted. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    yes for sure years ago and stuffed rags anywhere dust would do damage. Still trying to figure out why no power to fusebox. Will test ground to frame when I get home.

    Yeah, that's what I was talking about. Sometimes they can look good but actually be cracked/bad. Has happened to me more than once.

    There is also an "ignition" fuse under the cover on the triple clamp.

    So i touched the fuse and it crumbled, took out the spare and it crumbled too. None of my regular stops had a replacement so I improvised. See original and replacement below. [​IMG][​IMG]
