I like and have had good luck with a Rick Motor Sports Reg and Stator.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/ for the fork seals Gl1500 early years are the same.

Bought the progressive springs off e-bay.

Check price and shipping.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

hello nohands. instead of going the stator route have you considered an alternator conversion. I did mine this past winter and now i have more power than I'll probably ever use. and having 14.7 volts without worrying is not a bad trade-off for a little work :D

I have thought about going that route, but, I have the bike tore down to frame at the moment and have to rebuild forks as well. So, I my take the cheaper route and get a stator.

You might want to check out http://gl1200harness.tripod.com/. There's a lot of interesting info there.

Also, I bought a Rick's stator for my '87 Interstate and have been trying to reach the company for a few days now because it doesn't match up. Maybe it's just me, but their website said it was the correct one and the site I bought it from won't take it back. Apparently they are extremely busy because you always get voicemail.

it's a lot easier to change an alternator, or belt on the side of the road than a stator. there's a few guys
at steve saunders site that changed their stators only to have it die again in a few yrs. :D

I met a former Ltd owner yesterday, he has upgraded to a 1500.
he had a new factory stator he thought was for a Ltd so I bought it from him, thought it would be good to have a factory spare.
he paid $337 dollars for it and then traded in his 1200 for a 1500.
upon taking a closer look it is for the carburetor engines and not for my Ltd,
so therefor I am looking to sell it for my cost plus shipping. (less then 35% of new)

I did buy a new stator and regulator/rectifier last year from this place last year and it's working great so far.
