Voltage Reg

Postby seasicksid » Fri Nov 01, 2013 10:32 pm



Hi
I've just ordered a 7volt regulator for my fuel and Temp gauges.
The needles were showing a full tank and a hot engine. This I'm told is quite a commom fault. Has anyone had this fault? Did you fit a new volt regulator? Was it easy to do?

For future ref. Only the basic GL1100 and 1200 have this regulator. The Interstate or Aspencade do not need one. Anyone want to buy a 7v Regulator?

great.Keep us posted.Take pictures too.
The 1200 interstate is a really nice bike.I ran a 84 all over.
The ticking fuel pump and charging system wires were the weakest part of mine other than needing new fork slide bushings.

Got loads of pics. Completely renovating from ground up. Nice winter project that's going well. Apart from occasional hiccup like the 7v regulator issue. Its a great learning curve
