From another board. No key / bad switch or other problem to get it running.


Best way to try it just hot wire it about all jap bikes are easy to start don't need a key even, run a hot wire from the positive side of the battery to the ignition fuse on a gl 1800 that's about eight inches, hit the stater it should start.
Had a bike with a bad ignition switch that's the way we got it started I wired a toggle switch in the hot wire so the guy could shut it off that got him back home.

Posts get removed when someone explains how to open a seat with the keys locked inside and the poster gets takin out back and roughed up! This post explains how to easily start a Swing without need for a key. Not sure if the method would work or not but if it does a thief will have his/her research quickly done by reading here.

Ok rough me up, on GL 1500 one doesn't need anything more than a 9" piece of wire to get in the trunk. I can see not making it EZ for thieves to get in our scoots but odds on most already do or just break something to get at things.

I don't think this is a great revelation that no one knows. Thieves usually do know the tricks. It could be of use to a rider who has an ignition switch or interlock failure on the road. Oldwingguy's post could help someone here.

The fact that both the battery and the ignition fuse can only be accessed with the seat open kind of renders moot the chance that some evil miscreant is going to be able to hot wire your Sliverwing.
