1995 goldwing charging problem please help

Post by Kool442 » Sat Jul 13, 2013 6:08 pm

1995 1500 se 20th aniv, I've purchased and installed a new battery, after putting approximately 20 miles on the bike the battery got drained and the engine died out and stalls. My car knowledge tells me that once the engine is running the alternater should keep the engine running. Being the battery lost its charge and the engine stalled out is this an indicator that I need anew alternater?

Sounds like you have the answer,but you can check the alt. get the bike running and check the voltage at the lug on the alt. If it is the same as the battery then yes its shoot. I had the same problem on my 96 aspy just died and the alt, was dead,so I ordered a 90 amp from DB electrics,as the oem one was only 40 amps. been good ever since.---------------------Hal

Late 90's Wings had issues with the alternators. Two Honda dealers couldn't diagnose the problem for me. The third changed out the alternator and six months I replaced that one with a Compufire unit. I've never had another problem since.
