Re: engine interchangeability

I know my 81 uses igniters the 79 didn't have. I'm "familiar" with the setup. Not a mechanic, but once I downloaded the manuals, I've managed to stay on the road. Is the 1200 where the interchangeability ends?

engine interchangeability

I have a GL1100 engine from an 81 interstate. I've had it in my 78, so I know it fits from 75 to 81 Interstate frame. Anyone know if it will fit in an 82 aspencade?
Thanks...

Color coding on Electronic ignition 82 GL1100

I purchased an engine, 1982 1100. Plug from electronic ignition is cut off. It has 4 wires: Blue, yellow w/blue stripe, white, and white w/blue stripe. Working on old bike that has been worked on by many before me. Any suggestions as to which 2 feed the coils and which 2 need power...or ground?
Thanks

Re: radiator fan sending unit

Thanks, but the switch has two wires, actually metal posts on top, in the middle of some material that seems to isolate them from the screw-in body of the unit.

Hello, my name is Ron. I am the owner of a 1978 Goldwing, which runs well. My problem is that someone has taken out the sending unit that controls the radiator cooling fan. I have a new sending unit, but I need to know if it is a, "ground interrupt", switch, or if it has 12 volts running in and out ...
