Location of 7 volt regulator

Postby tunaboy » Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:21 am



Is this regulator located in the instrument cluster or in the false tank on an 1100?

If memory serves me correctly today,it's behind the insturment cluster.Dead center.
The gl1000 had it on the left side under the shelter door.

So you think you need to pull the chrome covers off the back of the gages to replace the regulator?

I don't recall having to do that but is much easier to unbolt the cluster and work on it.

Wilcoy02 is correct, it's located in that center console between the tach and speedometer gauges. You can do it without unbolting it if you're nimble, but it's much easier to unbolt the whole assembly to get to it.
