Stator question

Postby D&KGL1200 » Wed Oct 12, 2016 11:56 am



I'm curious. Recently acquired a really clean '85 GL1200I, 41K, without one extra OEM light. The stator connection next to the battery looks perfect. I separated it and others,inspected them & added dialectic grease. Any awareness of stator failure if there isn't ANY additional elec system draw than mfg designed?

Inspect the wires near the stator and near the rect/reg for brittleness, or burning ,
.... hard solder all connections , if at all iffy, add a voltmeter, check battery ( Load testing ) , change your oil , and .....

Be thankful the gods of motorcycles have smiled on you ... You should get at least 100,000 more on that stator .

Stator failure can happen of no reason at all... but I think you will be AOK .

Ride Safe !

Thanks SD. I've changed tires, battery, all fluids, water pump, hoses, thermostat, & freed sticky switches. Belts have 1K on them but are several years old. Bike was inside covered before me by an anal PO. Wires & other connections look really good. Been doing this awhile but was curious about the sensitivity of the 1200 stator.
