Re: Dead Battery / Low Voltage On Gauge

The yellow wires pass three-phase power, so it doesn't matter which one connects to which. As far as the green wire, in Honda terms green is always ground, so you would be safe connecting it to ground - but I'm wondering where it is coming from? What is it connected to? Thanks... I was hoping you w...

Re: Dead Battery / Low Voltage On Gauge

WingAdmin... I need your help again! Or anyone who wants to chime in please do! Last year you were helping with with the yellow wires coming out of the back of the motor coming from the stator/alternator... Make sure the disconnects you put on the yellow wires are CLEAN - any contamination in there ...

Do you have pictures of how it mounts up on the bike?
No... It was given to me by the previous owner when I bought my GL1000 ... I've never seen it on the bike or had it mounted!

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

Now my turn signal buzzer/clicker doesn't work anymore! Could that be because there isn't enough resistance? Do I need to use a higher ohm load resistor? I didn't have a chance to figure out how to make the turn signal buzzer/clicker work before it started working nonstop, unless the bike is at idl...

Re: 1978 vrs 1979 Gauges

If your fuel Gauge reads empty with a half tank left, it is working like most other users on GL1000's. Regulator will not fix that. Some have fiddled with the float arm but best to just go by miles. Not sure on the 7 vs 8.4 but might have to do with the amperage. The regulation voltage did not chan...

Re: 1978 vrs 1979 Gauges

What do you think? I know it looks bad but I figure if only one gauge and the 7 volt regulator work then $25 is well worth it! Except for that hole, it isn't bad. Looks like it would have cleaned up nicely. I just purchased it after the seller sent me a better picture. What is the difference?... mi...

Re: 1978 vrs 1979 Gauges

What's the issue with the fuel gauge? I go by mileage only. I also go by mileage but would like my gauge to be as accurate as possible. Right now when it's full it reads correctly... but when it's reads empty I've got about half a tank. I've already pulled out and check my float and it's working fi...

1978 vrs 1979 Gauges

I'm wondering if the center gauges (above the false tank) are the same from a 1978 GL1000 -> 1979 GL1000? and the 7 volt regulator ? I am having problems with my fuel gauge reading incorrectly and wondering if the 7volt regulator needs to be changed. I found someone selling a 1979 gauge pod for $25 ...

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

Thanks... I did manage to change the flasher unit with the new electronic LED flasher relay (link above) and replaced the original bulbs with LED bulbs ... then I figured out if I wired the LED light load resistor to the load side of the relay the turn signals now flash rather then just stay on!

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

Do not use butt connectors on a bike!!! Those are meant for house wiring, primarily for solid conductors. They're intended to be used on wiring that does not move, heat up, is not subject to vibration...you get the idea. They're about the worst thing you can use on a bike, as they loosen over time,...

Re: Dead Battery / Low Voltage On Gauge

Make sure the disconnects you put on the yellow wires are CLEAN - any contamination in there will generate heat, which will cause more oxidation, more resistance, more heat, until it melts. First thing to check is whether or not the stator is putting out enough power. Disconnect the three yellow wi...

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

I think I found the problem! I think rather then using the quick disconnects I'll switch back to what the PO used (butt connectors)

WingAdmin... I will run your test after I get this fixed just to make sure the stator is working correctly.

I think have some sort of a charging problem as when I got home from a 40-50 mile ride today my battery was dead... I knew something was wrong when my volt gauge was reading 8-10 volts most of the way home. I have noticed the voltage gauge reading low on a few rides before but never down in the red ...

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

You need to keep in mind, that as long as your bike has the OEM STATOR on it, replacing filament bulbs with LEDs will put more stress on the Voltage Regulator. that is because a STATOR runs at full maximum output all the time, RPM determines how much output. so, you need to offset the loss of load ...

Re: Replacing Origial Bulbs with LEDs

The BA9 dash leds both improve function and reduce amperage. Win win on those If you do not want to change out the flasher, there is another way. The front blinkers are running lights and on all the time, so I replaced those with superbright 90 degree leds. But the rear blinkers are not running lig...
