Alternator Wiring

Post by Turkeyboy111 »



Hey everyone, I'm working on swapping in a 1200 into a GL1000, and I was just wondering what pins on the alternator cable correspond to what wires on the rectifier/regular. They're all yellow, so does it matter how they're hooked up?

No. All 3 wires are yellow and all the same. Hook them up in any order. As long as you have all three correct hook up points.

Awesome! While you're on a roll, care to tell me how the fuel cutoff relay connects up? What wires go to which pins?
