GL 1800 alternator

Can anyone tell me the expected life of a GL 1800 alternator. I have 100,000 miles on my 2007 and was wondering if I should change it as a precaution. Both of my GL 1500 bikes i had to replace the alternators after about 100,000 miles. :?:

Re: Speedometer stops working

I found the problem after testing the speed sensor and it was OK so I checked connections and found a loose plug. Put it bad together and everything works well

Re: Speedometer stops working

I have a 2007 with the speedo intermittently stops working, the cruise control kicks out. No MIL light comes on. there is no consistency to it, bumps or anything don't make a difference makes a difference. all gauges remain working normal. turn signals won't cancel when this happens, bike runs well :(

Heated seats and grips

Re: 2013 Honda Goldwing F6B - BREAKING NEWS!

Can't see the point of this no canceling signals no cruise control most likely will go the path of the Rune :(

Re: First time Wing owner with malfunctioning heated seats,g

This seems to be a common problem with these models. I am having the same problem. I am told that there seems to be many that have the left heated grip fail. If any of the units fail, then neither the grips or seats will heat. I am thinking that I would be better to not use these and install after m...

Re: CB Radio GL 1800

Thanks to all who made suggestions to fix the problem I was having with my Cb. It is OK now. I disconnected the battery for about 28 hours and charged it for the same period. When I re connected it and turned the CB on I got CB error a few times. After shutting it down and re-starting it a few times...

Re: speedometer drops to zero

You may have a bad connection, same thing will happen if the fuse for the turn signal is burnt only it wouldn't come back If the speedo doesn't work the signal lights won't cancel. Starty with the fuse see if it is loose or corroded.

Re: synthetic oil

I just don't understand what you gain by putting in expensive oil. How many miles do you need to get out of the engine? I have seen bikes with 400- km on it with the mimiun required by the manufacturer. because it cost more does not mean it will give better resultsMost bikes are retired with perfect...
