We have a 2005 Honda Silver Wing. In error, my boyfriend hooked up the battery cables backwards when charging the battery. Now the bike won't start! The battery is fully charged and all the wires and fuses look fine. Can you help????

Hi Janice,

This has happen before by other members. You need to check and replace your main fuse under your scooters left side cover. There should be a replacment 30Amp fuse under the in-use main fuse location.

Just spoke to boyfriend. He changed the fuse you are talking about and the bike still is not running. There is no power, no lights, nothing. Can you think of anything else he could do?????

Stupid question, but did he hook the battery back up the right way? Positive is to the front of the bike, neg to the rear i believe. Other than that, Dennis has you covered, check all your fuses.

Sometimes a good spin/twist works wonders.

Or a Henway.

Hi Janice,

The main fuse I'm pointing at in the photo is the spare. The in-use fuse is under the cover and cannot be seen until you remove the insulation cover. Could it be he just looked at the spare?

Hey Tagg, I will check with him on that. One never knows since he connect the cables backwards! Let me ask him.

Dennis, Can I have you call him to talk to him about this?

The point of all of this is he has no internet at his house and I do. He CANNOT figure it out. He has been trying for about 2 months. I was hoping you all could help. Can he call you so he and you can discuss this and keep me out of the middle?

Really no need. That main 30Amp fuse under the left side cover is one that very rearley gets blown and getting at it is not a problem.

He hooked up the charger backwards two months ago and still can't get the bike started?

He has no internet?

He already replaced the main fuse?

Time for a new boyfriend?

+1 Im glad somebody said it!

You can ride with me if you want. All my bikes work pretty well, and i can like, fix stuff.

Big Bird - BF lives way out in the country where there is no cable service and has no land line phone - uses only his iPhone! He did not know about this fuse until Dennis pointed it out! And we are all allowed to make a mistake once in a while. He has not since he has been riding for about 35 years. And WE RIDE HIS HARLEY MOST OF THE TIME WHICH HE BUILT! With that said let's move one.

Dennis - Did you see us riding last night???? The fuse was where you said, replaced, and started right up. We thank you so much. It felt good to be out and about again.

Sorry you took it so seriously. I guess I should have put a smiley emoticon after it to indicate that it was meant to be tongue in cheek.

Wishing I could have waved to you. Someday I will have another Silverwing. I've been a Harley rider since I got out of the Army in 1972. Last HD was a 59FLH. That old Panhead was just to hard on this old bikers back side.

Hey Janice, Now you know why we keep Dennis around, besides his good looks. I'm glad ya'll got the Silverwing going. Don't take people too seriously on this forum. Both Bigbird and Tagg have been there to help many times. I applaud your willingness to serve as an internet go-between. Your BF is a lucky guy. An understanding girlfriend and a Silverwing. Priceless. cheers cheers

Thank you to all of you! I am sorry to have been so heard on you Big Bird. Just a little defensive. A smiley face would have been helpful. We were wondering if there are groups riding in our area, Florence, South Carolina. I also have a Mazda Miata, 07, that we would love to take out on a group ride. Do you know of any groups? We try to ride in motorcycle rides for charity and now that the Silver Wing is up and running it is possible. Now just waiting for the Fat Boy to feel better after it goes to the "Harley Doctor." Again, thanks for all the help. See you around....

No offense taken. Yes, a smiley would have been helpful.
Now that BF's Swing is running, enjoy it.
Fat Boy or Swing?
After riding both of those, I know which bike I'd ride.

Of course, we love the Fat Boy for all the right reasons. I must say that the Silver Wing is much more comfy from a passenger's point of view! I have been riding his Helix and getting my chops wet so I can ride myself. I am kinda scared to be riding anything bigger. Just think...I am a scaredy cat! Took lesson for big kids bikes but still unsure. The Helix is fine for me for a while. Speak to you soon and think you are the Fat Boy kinda guy!

My wife is the same way. She rides her 250cc scooter just fine, but is afraid to even try the Swing. I can't explain it.

Janice, the only kind of HD I'd consider would be a V-Rod. The typical HD air cooled V-twin is so antiquated and technically sad that it should be relegated to farm machinery use.
Give me a modern DOHC liquid cooled 4 valve engine any day. If I wanted a V-twin power cruiser it would be Japanese in origin. The Japanese copied HD, but at least have good power and reliability. HD has a cult following based on image, nothing else.
Flame away.

No flames here -- IMHO you're spot on with your perception of HD. Some of them are very pretty, but that's all they do for me. If I were interested in a v-twin power cruiser, it would be the Ducati Diavel. It goes, turns, and stops. The V-Rod with its Porsche-designed motor is better than the air-cooled Milwaukee vibrators, but as with all HDs is overpriced and too comprimised for form over function.

I've ridden my SWing with a bunch of HD and Japanese cruiser riders and none of the damn things can turn a corner with my "little scooter." Most of them aren't much faster and some are surprisingly slower.
