Hello My name is LaRay. I have been reading this forum for a while. I have a 1982 Gl1100i, I bought it with 59000 miles on it have put a 1k miles on it. I would like to thank everyone for their post, many problems I have had were answered by the members. I still have a few bugs to fix and then start to restore her.

So far I have fixed.

new brake lines.
new rotor, or used but in great condition.
rewired the stator wires.
striped the front wheel and repainted.
new tires.
drained fork oil added new.

I am about to rebuild back shocks, new seals came in yesterday.

The one hard problem I have is a short. I have tracked to the ACC but still not sure exactly where it is in the circuit . Time and patience I will find it...... I hope.

Any way just saying high to everyone. HI ;)

This may help to find the short.I guess it blows a fuse?So remove the fuse,say it's a 10 amp,Attach a light in it's place.I'd use something like tail light bulb,not a puny test light .Nice and bright with a short on one end.locate the short and the bulb goes dim.
Shorted wiring is not uncommon especially where they pass through a hole like the tail light housing or get pinched behind a add on mount.

Yea,just pretend the light is a fuse,the only difference is it won't blow when there is a shorted wire,it will just light up.
