Re: Cornering Lights Yes another question.

My apologies I thought you had an SEI. Someone added those to your bike. My guess is the front panels are from an SEI. I wouldn't order the relays as you don't have the wiring to make them work like in a SEI or LTD.

Re: Cornering Lights Yes another question.

Yes that's where they go. The relays are about 25 to 30 bucks a piece.

Re: Cornering Lights Yes another question.

Inside the fuse panel there are 2 relays one for each side. They most likely are not in there and they have them jumped so they'll stay on all the time. Once you have the relays (they are expensive) you will have to see if they work. If they don't come on when activating the turn signal then there i...

Well it was a plug drain that was clogged and as mentioned filled with water & shorted the plug. Cleaned all of them and runs great. Thanks again for the info.

Re: Help with LTD

Thanks for the info. I was guessing at ignition and will check it out tomorrow. It did it once before after washing the bike. I thought I just sprayed water somewhere inadvertently. After today I know it's an issue that needs to be addressed. Will report back my findings. Once again the quick respon...

Help with LTD

I have the 85 LTD and something is getting wet that makes the bike run rough and rich. I was coming home today and hit a rain storm and the bike started running rough and was shuddering and running rich so much so it drank a half tank of gas in 60 miles or so. Once it sets and dries out she run just...

Re: Poor Boy questions

You can use the stock volt meter. You'll need a breaker to put between the alternator and the battery. The pulley I ordered a 4 inch Pulley. I believe Rednax used one from a honda car if I'm not mistaken. Let me see if I can find it and I'll repost. I'll also repost my alternator that I got from Ama...

Re: Poor Boy questions

I put a 70 amp on my GL1200 Limited edition. It was the same price as a 50 amp so I thought what the hell lol. It's been working great for the past year or so. You'll be glad you did it!

Re: Alternator conversion

Ernest what do you mean by interference fit? Do you mean it needs to be tight on the bolt as it go thru the pulley?

Alternator conversion

I have a question on alternator conversion. The alternator all have the v belt pulley and most guys have used a pulley from a prelude for the crank but those are serpentine. The crank bolt is 12mm if I'm correct. Will a 4 inch pulley with a 1/2 inch bore work for the crank? I can find plenty of 4 in...

Re: Rear tire went flat at 60 mph and a couple questions

I would suggest starting a new topic on the wiring of the compressor. An easy way to do it would be to just run a toggle switch somewhere and tap into the positive and negative wire for the compressor. I haven't researched it but that would seem the easiest.

Re: Not charging

If I remember correctlly one of those yellow wires is not copper. Make sure you strip them back far enough to get to good wire then solder in new wire with heat shrink tubes. Its important to not use butt connectors or the spade one's which are on there currently but to do a good solder job with goo...

Re: Not charging

The other problem is the connector at the regulator under the false tank. Not sure if it's covered in the previous links posted. Even though the plugs may look good take it apart and solder those wires together as well with heat shrink applied. My 1200 Limited Edition did that several years back on ...

Does anyone know will a speedometer gear from a gl1200 Interstate without the digital dash work with a digital dash? I'm not sure if the cable that connects to it with the screw is the same as one with a digital dash. As always thanks for your time and knowledge. Ed

Re: GL1200 Speed Sensor failures & repair

When you "pott" it putting it back together can you just use regular silicone to do that or does it have to be a certain kind? I have never done this before and was curious. I have read that you can just use regular silicone but better safe then sorry. I have it taken out and have de-potted it and I...

I did my 85 Limited Edition over the winter. I put progressive springs up front and used 15wt fork oil. The ride was just to rough for me with 15wt oil so I went back to ATF and it's much smoother. I also put progressive air shocks on the back. Wow what a difference in ride with the forks and the sh...
