Help with a stator

Postby sledneck » Mon Jun 27, 2011 9:16 am



Hi everyone,
I just purchased a 1986 1200 aspencade. I get it in 7 to 10 days. My question is, what can I do to prevent any sator issues and or charging issues? It is as simple as hard wiring the famous three yellow wires? Is that the root of all the problems? Any other issues to be worried about? It has 36,000 miles and is all original Thank you for the help everyone

Hello and welcome to the forum.
Do not overload the charging system.
If you want to take some drain off the system switch the running and brake lights to LED's.
Keep connections tight and coat with dielectric grease.
By bringing those yellow wires together you eliminate resistance.

Yes, bypass the connector on the three yellow wires. Also check the connector where they plug into the regulator under the false tank. That connector can melt also. Keep your oil changed as recommended, there is some belief that acid that develops in the oil causes the varnish on the windings to disintegrate over time. It seems that most the folks that have stator problems also have bad connectors on the stator wires.

Hi, I am new to this forum and to Goldwings. I think I may have a stator problem. Coming home from work yesterday I noticed my voltmeter was reading under 10 at 3600 rpm. After getting home I put a meter to my battery and it read 12.2 volts but stayed at that after starting the engine and increasing rpm's. Where are these three yellow wires located? Are they easy to find. Is the stator somewhere close to the starter?

When you remove the left side cover, you will see a white connector with 3 yellow wires along side the battery. These are the three wires are easy to find they are right there in the open. As for the stator, well that is inside the engine and in order to get at it the engine has to be removed from the bike.
