Back to the Pulse Generators!

Post by TheRepoGuy »



I had someone in the FB Goldwing group advise GL1500 PG’s are adaptable to the GL1200’s but haven’t had any luck tracking down that information.

Have Any of you folks done this and if so, is there a how to post I’m just not seeing?!

Hey repo, I have not heard of doing this but am wondering what the advantage is. I replaced my 85 A easily and they were cheap and easy to find.

According to the fantastic world of “everything you see on Facebook is true” the 1500 PG’s have a higher tolerance for heat and don’t fail as often apparently. I have some for the 1200 on the way, just curious since the 1500’s are more readily available and less expensive

Thanks Nate, now I am really curios to see any answers on this. There is no such thing as too much info on our 'Wings!

Seems a lot of parts from the 1500’s will fit but haven’t found anything concrete as of yet on the adaptation of the 1500 PG’s if I find it or another member has the info I’ll advise. I might give it a shot and just shoot from the hip if I can’t find any info

On the Partsfish site, the online price for '85 PGs and '88 PGs is the same, about $82. If there's a price shown, they should be available. Why bother messing with adapting anything? Has anyone ever changed them twice?

The PG’s off the 1500’s are more resistant to heat and don’t “fail” as often per se. That’s the only reason I’d consider adapting them to the 1200
