I installed the poor boy kit about 40,000 miles ago with no issues once so ever...
It has performed flawlessly and you can't even tell it is installed under the fairing...
I highly recommend....

I also installed the Geo alternator and the Poorboy kit on my 84 GL1200 I.
I only have about a thousand miles on my kit, but the bike is running better than ever.
The whole project cost about $320.00 bucks and took about 6-8 hours not including gathering materials.
I highly recommend the Poorboy kit, everything fit perfectly.
I only had very minor trimming around the lower fairing, if you did not know what to look for, you can't even tell the unit has been installed.
I have 14.26 V at idle, and my lights do not go dim anymore. :mrgreen:

Ride Safe,
Goodoni
