Electrical for Lights

Post by FallenHeavens » Tue Jun 03, 2014 6:23 pm

I can't find anything locally or online for replacing the electrical for lights for my 1982 Honda GL1100, and it's getting to the point of ridiculous. I've removed the front fairing, and am just trying to do a standard turn signal, headlight and taillight setup, but to no avail quite yet. Does anyone know where I can find the parts I need to get the lights on this bike set up properly, so I can ride the damned bike already? I've been looking pretty consistently for about a month and a half now, and no one seems to have any idea of what I can do to make it work. I thought that lighting would be easy to replace, turns out not so much.

no it is not easy. I have been fighting with my gl1100 since March for a stupid left turn signal.
Now it works if I keep my thumb on it but it wants to self cancel right away.

I know your frustration.
