Replacement 7 volt regulators for GL1000, GL1100, GL1200

Postby WingAdmin » Sun May 17, 2009 9:03 pm



Honda Goldwing motorcycle 7 Volt Regulator for Fuel & Temperature Gauges

Applicable models:

1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979 GL1000 Goldwing (replaces parts no. 31410-371-007 and 31410-371-008)
1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 GL1100 Goldwing (replaces part no. 31410-463-008)
1984, 1985, 1986, 1987 GL1200 Goldwing (replaces part no. 31410-463-008)

If both the fuel and temperature gauges on your Goldwing have stopped functioning, or are malfunctioning, the seven volt regulator that drives them has failed. This is a common failure item on older Goldwings, and running your bike with a failed regulator can cause permanent damage to your fuel and temperature gauges. Unfortunately, Honda's replacement part costs over a hundred dollars! Other aftermarket suppliers charge $60 or more for a copy of the original part. Now you can replace this failed part with a state-of-the-art solid-state modern voltage regulator that will not fail after years of use like the original equipment, and save a lot of money in the process!

This 7-volt regulator has been designed and manufactured by a Goldwing owner, and is designed to plug in exactly in place of your OEM unit. Detailed instructions are included, and full unlimited online support is provided. Replacing this regulator on your motorcycle is well within the capabilities of a casual home DIY mechanic and requires only a couple screwdrivers.

These regulators are built to withstand years of abuse. They are shockproof, waterproof and fully tested before shipping.

While the regulators are identical, the wire terminations are different depending on the model and year of your Goldwing motorcycle:

Type A: 1975, 1976, 1977 GL1000 Goldwing

Type B: 1978, 1979 GL1000 Goldwing

Type C: All GL1100 and GL1200 Goldwings

Please ensure you specify which type you require when placing your order. If the type is not specified, we will contact you prior to shipping.

They work on only those bikes that do NOT have digital fuel and temperature indicators. The digital dash does not utilize a 7 volt regulator. If your GL1000, GL1100 or GL1200 bike has the mechanical (needle) dials for fuel and temperature, instead of the LCD digital display, then it has a 7 volt regulator, and this replacement will work.

This sounds exactly like my problem, except my headlight is out as well (and the bulb is good) only thing is, I have a digital dash and this says it's NOT for the digital dash. Anybody know what I can do for my gl1200 Aspencade with digital gagues?

If my tempurature gauage works but the fuel guage doesnt then this is more likely the sending unit?

Correct. If the regulator fails, both the fuel AND the temperature gauge will be inoperative.

Well over the weekend I did all the regulator and stator tests that have been posted here and acrording to all you techs, my stator and regulator test fine.
I have not had any problems with charging at all, just my two guages pinned all the way up (Temp and Fuel) and weither coinisidentally or not my headlight is out as well.
I cut and soldered all my yellow wires on the regulator from the stator so far (eliminating the two connector plugs). I will end up doing the green and reds as well.
I guess my next step is to tear into the dash and look at my guages.

Well I have to say I should have listened, After hours of troubleshooting, I found that the headlight connector under the handlebars (the one in the metal housing) was dirty. I disconnected it and sprayed with contact cleaner and all is good now. Weird that it also shorted out my guages. At least I got to remove the plastic connectors from my stator and soldered them so I wont have any probs there for a while.
Thanks for all the help : )

It's located on the backside of the tank-mounted gauge cluster.

Thank you sir, I have yet to have to do any work other than regular service on this ride and could not find any info in the
manual regarding location of the 7V regulator. I will attempt to access it.

Much appreciated,
Rick

Those are your ignitors. Clean out the black goo as best you can, mix up some epoxy, pour it in there, let it set, and put them back on the bike. They'll be good for another 30 years.

I finally got around to installing my "new" (bought about a year ago) regulator on my 80 GL1100I, and a couple things I can pass on...

1) The job would've been immensely easier if I had removed the fairing, first (I might still have to, actually). Squeezing your hand(s) in that space to get at those screws behind the gauge cluster, then finding and removing the little screw holding the old regulator, then figuring out what connectors to separate... You can't see what you're doing down there, so it's all by feel.

2) If the fairing isn't removed, then you'll have to remove a speaker (no big deal, I know), and the 3# weight bolted to the fork in order to get a straight shot at the screws on the bottom of the wiring cover.

3) I'll probably be removing (or maybe just loosening up) the fairing, anyway, because I can't get the wiring cover back in place, and I've already dropped one of the screws for the cover (by the grace of God, my magnet found it, whew!)

Oh, and hey, I've got a "slightly used" 7 volt regulator if anybody wants it! (It's only 34 years old, what could possibly go wrong with it? :roll: )

So, I got the fairing loose and out of the way (removing the windshield made things much easier, too) and got the new regulator hooked up. Gauges still work! Must'a done something right. BUT...with the new regulator, I can't get the cover back in place with the regulator tucked inside, or having it dangle behind the instrument cluster.

Admin, or anybody, how did you get the cover back on? Does the regulator have to dangle behind the gauge cluster?, did you leave the cover off?, is there some "trick" I haven't thought of?

I'm thinking of putting the old one back in, cuz it fits.

You did take the old one out, right? You might have to push some of the wires around, but it should fit easily in there, and you should certainly be able to get the cover back on.

I've got a '78 Wing. I see that your regulator is a replacement for part #31410-371-007. I'm seeing a part number on various sites of #31410-431-007. Can you comment on that? And also, I see in your explanation regarding the effect of a faulty regulator on the temp. and fuel guages, you seem to imply that they essentially would be Off Scale, either low or high. My temp. guage reads quite low, but not off scale, and my fuel guage only rises to about 3/4 of a tank of fuel, even though the tank is quite full. Can, a faulty regulator, possibly with too low an output voltage, have a partial affect the operation of the guages, as opposed to a complete guage failure. It seems to be quite coincidental that both guages, in my case, would read incorrectly at the same time.

Thanks for your help...............Dave

If the reg is faulty in a open position, you would get little current to the gauges causing them both to give a 'low' reading. You can easily check the reg by using a meter- 12v on red/white wire- earth on green wire- 7v on the green/black wire. Do this before you purchase a new regulator if not making your own as I do. You do not want to buy a reg if you have a poor connection somewhere, although unlikely it is best to check first.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

Thank you sir, for your valuable information regarding my voltage regulator. Check the output voltage. Good thinking!
I was just sitting here at my computer desk, gazing longingly out the window at my snow covered Canadian backyard, dreaming of spring, and taking my baby out for a stroll along a quiet, windless, and winding Ontario back road, and almost being lulled into peaceful sleep by the sound of a well tuned engine, and the rhythm of the ride. Don't get me going!! When I thought, I need to talk to someone. That's when it dawned on me. Hey! I should post a request for voltage regulator information. Yeah, there's a good idea! And, it worked.
Also, many thanks for your kind compliments regarding my motorcycle and her photo. I took that shot last fall, about a month before she went into hibernation for the winter. She needs her rest, because it seems that the older she gets, the more it costs to keep her going. That sound familiar?
Thanks again, and I hope that spring comes early for you, and that you have a safe, and satisfying, riding season..............................Dave

I need one of these, but can't tell from the picture, which one is type A, B, or C.

I need the one that has all 3 male connectors. It's the top one in the picture.

My bike is a 77, but it has a 79 motor and harness.

The Type A is the one in the middle of the picture. It has three identical flat spade terminals.

The Type B is the one on the top. It has one male barrel connector and two female barrel connectors.

The Type C is the one on the bottom. It has one male barrel connector, one double female barrel connector, and one ring terminal connector.
