Re: What does every one do for a living?

Probably a good time to update. I retired in March, so I now work at holding this chair down (in the event gravity should fail, wouldn't want it to float away), also included in my work schedule is seeing how much I can increase my waistline. :D I hate to break it to you, but if gravity fails even ...

Re: GL1200 Alternator (Poor Boy) Kit

I bought these parts for my 85 LTD a few years ago and never used them after finding out the voltage regulator was bad. Parts include all Don "Poor Boy" mounting pieces, a new alternator and timing belts. At the time of purchase his complete kit was $525 + shipping and I see them online for $650. I...

Re: starter solenoid problems

Hey peeps and peepetts. I now have the pleasure in saying my Wing is back up and running. With the advise from Rednax, I replaced the R/R with the new style Super Mosfet Kit FH020AA from Roadstercycle.com, and it was great idea. I also moved the mounting location to inside the left saddlebag so it w...

Re: starter solenoid problems

Hey Ernest. I'm going to print this out so i can have it right next to me while im installing the new R/R and while im taping up the old wires coming off of the R/R. Don't want to have a wire shorting out anything. Thanks for this diagram.

Re: starter solenoid problems

Well, since they won't be used anymore, im gonna just cap 'em off and tape them up. I still can't see how everything will still work with all of the wires being capped off, but i'll take your words for it.

Re: starter solenoid problems

Good morning Ernest. I hope this message finds you well. I have a question about this new style R/R. I like the fact that it is very "simple" and only 5 wires in total, but what do I do with all the rest of the wires that are connected to the old style R/R. Do I "reroute" them or simply cut and seal...

Re: starter solenoid problems

Hi Ernest. I like the looks of that new stator. It looks so "simple". I see that new RR has only 5 wires coming out. 3 are for the stator and the other 2 are the + and - for the battery as you have shown in the photo. I also see 2 connectors to the left of the RR in the photo. Are they the old conn...

Hi Ernest. I like the new style RR, but how would i go about wiring in all the existing wires into it, also, the OEM RR, from what i've seen, has 2 wire harness connectors whereas mine only has one main connector, which has been removed and all the wires coming from the RR have been "hard soldered" ...

Re: starter solenoid problems

OK, as for the ignition switch being the culprit, now it shouldn't be the case because when I unplugged it, I could still start the bike up by putting the run switch to "on" when i install the solenoid fuse. When i go to shut the bike off with the key, it would shut off all the dash lights, LCD read...

Re: starter solenoid problems

Good morning Dave and Ernest. Here is what I found after i removed the tank shelter. the white wire with the inline fuse that connects to one of the solenoid pins is actually for the electric fuel pump which turns on and off with the run switch and is buried deep inside the wire harness and I cant g...

Re: starter solenoid problems

Hi Ernest. OK, i got some good news and some bad news lol. The GOOD news is i get the bike to start, and BTW, the white wire is the only wire that has a 30A inline fuse attached to it. The BAD news is I can't get the bike to shut off with the ignition switch. I have to remove the fuse thats on the s...

Hi Ernest, sounds like your doing some serious work on that bike. Today i was able to get to the wiring under the seat and heres what i found......... Other than being a "rats nest" of wires, the wire that looks red and white is actually a white wire with a red insulator covering it, 1 pair of yello...

Well hello Earnest. Good to hear that YOU'R also among us lol. The photo you posted is exactly what i needed to find. Maybe now i can figure out which wire goes where. Someone spliced into ALL the 4 wires, so i'll have to remove the seat and trace up from the solenoid to find the original color code...

Hi Dave, thanks for the info. After trying to put the wires on their correct pins, I was able to get the bike to fire up, but now I can't shut it down with the key even after i switch it to "off" and remove the key. It keeps on running, so I had to pull all the wires off again plus take the 30A fuse...
