1994 GL1500A electrical relays

Where are the electrical relays located for the starter and lights? Reading the newsletter it said to have a spare along in case they fail. I need to know where they are located. Thanks tcryder

the fuses and relays are under the left side cover under the seat, I don't know what is what and getting to the relays could be a pain
the fuses are marked in the cover

The fuses are accessible under the large side cover on left side, however the relay cover is blocked from removal be the left saddle bag, you have to loosen the saddle bag to gain access to the relays. Just another engineers idea that the relays never go bad??? :D :D

Here is a picture from the Honda Service Manual of the fuse/relay box showing what each are for.

If you remove the cover, mounting bolts, and a couple of the relays, you can pull the fuse box out just enough to access the rest of the relays without loosening the saddle bag. It's not extremely easy, but I've done it several times.

It is a good idea to carry a spare, I keep a couple with me. These relays are identical, so if you were to get caught out on the road and a critical circuit like fuel pump or lights went bad, you could temporarily swap with the horn or accessory relay to get you down the road.

:) Thanks for all the replies. I appreciate it. I am also replacing my timing belts and both adjusters on my new to me 94 GL1500A with Motor Trike conversion. I didn't know when or if they were ever replaced. Waiting for the adjusters.
