Re: Hondaline luggage keys

There are not many numbers. My 432 and 436 are two of the 6 or so. Are they really Yale 14 blanks?

Re: Blnkers and Brake Light won't work 78 GL1000

Agree that this sounds like a ground issue. Try giving the circuit a known good ground close to the last connection, then move back if that corrects the issue.

Re: Adding a Trailer

money ahead by changing out the trailer bulbs (only the bulbs) to LED. That way no additional stator loading either and the stock flasher works.

Re: What to look for when buying

Looks like the rear grab rail is there, they are hard to find. They can crack near the blinker mount so check on that. Sulfer yellow is a popular color these days, a bit rare as back in the day that color did not sell well and dealers repainted them before the sale. Looks to be in reasonably good sh...

Re: front tire sizing

Let us s know if it fits. On an early wing it often rubs the forks with some brands of 110 19 inch tires.

Re: Need Rectifier & Wiring Harness

Better to buy something newer than 40 years old. I replaced mine with a 2006 CBR600rr unit and it had exactly the same wires. Much better performance as it is Mosfet and not a grounded unit.

There is a screw on the right side to adjust idle speed. It does not need a tool, as on mine I can turn it by hand,.

Re: Stator Numbers

14.6 at 1100 rpm seems good, and 15 at 3000 just a touch high. The output will drop off when the Stator is hot. So best to check it after a long ride.

Re: 1978 gl1000 ignition switch+ speedo replacement

Emco makes a replacement but that changes the key. There may be a way to change the key cylinder, but I just removed the plastic lower from the old switch and replaced it with the Emco plastic part. You have to use epoxy to hold it back together as the new Emco plastic teeth may not work with the ol...

It is certainly a workable solution if you have a donor bike for the parts.

Re: Wont Start... Bad Dyna III Electronic Ignition Box?

Over $100 if I recall. Not urgent but you may need one before the end of the season. Usually it will drop to two cylinder mode when hot as it ages further.

Re: Wont Start... Bad Dyna III Electronic Ignition Box?

Correct me if I am wrong, but seems to me the dyna 3 in the picture is of 1980 vintage. My guess is that it has aged and it is time to replace with a newer Dyan S.

Re: Comstars wheels in 1975

Comstars were introduced in 1978. Modifications are required to fit them on a 1975 to 1977 wing. Check the Vin as my guess is that the bike is not a 1975.

Re: kick starter

1977 was the last year. A 1978 engine block was new that year and the kick starter was gone. It can be added back in by usage of the 1977 cover.

Re: Turn signal problem

Glad to see you have a solution. Don't forget the indicator lights, 1 smd led work great in the cluster, they are much brighter and lower current too. Have not changed out my headlight yet but good options are getting available for a led too.

Re: Turn signal problem

Your flasher may need more curent draw to flash. Solid on this the indicator of a bulb out. Low current is that trigger. I run incandescent in the rear blinkers to avoid this issue. Since the rear blinkers are not running lights, no real power is saved by having them led.

Re: No running rear light; but brake light works; All works with key in ACC position.

I used a regulator from a 2006 CBR600rr on my 1977 and it worked very well. Even the wire count was identical.

Re: Old 77 wing for parts

They are not easy to turn over using the kick starter lever if tight from sitting. The bolt on the stator or under the belt cover might be an alternative.
