I thought I remember seeing a drawing of the bike showing the electrical connector numbers / function and their location on the bike. Going to sc...

Re: GL1200 position light and fuel/carb issue

Im no electrical expert for sure but I believe the L and R are on the same circuit, so one side could effecting the other. take the lens off the front indicators, and clean the contacts with electrical cleaner, check the wire connections for corrosion etc. replace the bulbs in case one is faulty. No...

installing a fuse block

Hi folks, the acc screws on my 86 aspy look a bit like spaghetti junction, so I'm thinking about installing a fuse block to tidy up the situation.

I've never installed one of these things, can I wire one to the acc screws?

be gentle my knowledge on electrics is a bit shaky. lol

thanks

Re: Battery not charging

yep, check for burnt connectors around the rectifier, and around the 30 amp fuse and solenoid. you may need to run a stator check also if doesnt charge after fixing the wiring.
