Re: Voltage Regulator

It's for the main, under the false tank. I figured I would just change it to see if this fixes my starting problem. Pretty sure I may have damaged it when I tried to jump it off my running Jeep.

Not sure if my battery that I bought in June is defective (bought from Auto Zone), or maybe I fried something again :oops: I don't believe my starter is an issue, I was able to crank starter with direct Charge from battery to termina...

Bike won't start

I have been having trouble getting my 83 to start, I think I may have just fried another relay after using my jeep battery to try and jump it as my battery quickly lost voltage after trying to start it. I should have checked the voltage to the starter before I tried to crank it but I thought my issu...

Re: For Sale 1983 GL1100I located in Virginia Beach

So to further troubleshoot my electrical issue I just jumped the starter off the battery and starter cranks, so either the relay or the wire from the relay going to starter is bad. So bike should definitely be running before next weekend. This is a nice bike to ride for her vintage age and I hate to...

Still no joy, looks like I'm only getting 2-4 Volts when I engage the starter switch, relay just clicks. I a...

Re: No Electrical Power

I just attempted to unbolt the ground, put my engine support stand under and broke bolt loose but thinking it may have stripped out, not loosening or tightening now! Do you know if there is a helicoil insert at this location that may have just spun when trying to break loose? Any ways I'm going to t...

Re: No Electrical Power

So I have very weak power going to starter. The voltage light tester is very dim, and relays just clicks. Does not appear to be sending enough cranking amps to starter. Battery lights up fine, getting 10.56 volts. I realize this is not 12 but it is a new battery. I actually bought battery new in Jun...

Re: Front brake sticking

One other question. I don't believe I used synthetic the last time I rebuilt my calipers which was less than 4 years ago. I didn't rebuild this time with new seals because my only problem was the pads were soaked with fork oil so I just put on new pads. I know I pumped a lot of new brake fluid throu...

Re: Fork Seal Repacement

I know this is two months after last post but those crush washers sometimes get stuck/compressed in and may appear to somebody unfamiliar with them that there is not a washer. Took me about 15 minutes to dislodge one in my fork. Need to pick out gently without marring the fork. I used a pick tool bu...

Replacing the fork seals and so far it isn't very difficult. Started by removing calipers, speedometer cable, axle & wheel, and fender.
