Parts needed, maybe wrong place for this?

Post by aspencade.sei » Thu Dec 26, 2019 4:01 pm



I have been working on my 1985 Goldwing LTD almost all day with a few things to "get er done" and along the way I came up with a missing part in my fairing. A metal plate that goes inside the fairing where the left mirror mounts. The right one was there and all was fine but the left one was missing so the mirror was lose and without the part, someone in the past has rigged it. I am looking for a good condition Honda part #64531-MG9-770. Partszilla does not have it and currently, there are none listed on eBay. see the images of the "right one" and please note I need the "left one".

Then I have a scary issue while working I found Voltage Rectifier Regulator had a badly melted Orange and one green wire. Again see images. I am figuring this thing is bad and likely the stator is shorted out so wondering if I should replace this and the bad wires but then install the poor boys alternator cause I do not have the way to drop the motor and replace the stator. Just let the cooked stator go along for the ride.

There is a rats nest in the fairing so is off and after removal of all the "stuff" will spend some time at the carwash being cleaned out. At this point, I will also refurbish the instrument cluster (spiders dead inside) and convert all the fairing lights over to LED. Maybe even redo the mounts and shoot them with a fresh coat of rustproof paint.

So anyone with some help, part, or info on my electrical issue?
thanks in advance for the positive feedback and response.

Sorry, can't help with the mirror mount thingy....

Looks like internal short in the rec/reg, There's a fair (50/50) chance your stator is still OK, it should be tested with Rec/Reg disconnected anyway. You may be able to avoid a Poorboy conversion.

Call the three yellow wires coming from the stator "A", "B" and "C". Set your volt meter to AC volts and with engine at 3000 RPM you should measure on the order of 50-70 volts AC between wires A & B, A & C, and B & C.

What we are looking for is all three voltage readings to be roughly the same at 3000 RPM. Final test is to measure ohms between one of the yellow wires and ground. Should be no reading (open circuit).

If stator passes these tests you can call it good, and a new rec/reg should happily get you on your way....

If the stator tests bad, no need to replace the rec/reg if you do the poorboy conversion, just leave those wires disconnected.

that part # is not correct from what I can determine, if the FleaBay seller is correct?

64531-MG9-770

https://www.ebay.com/itm/312723900158
but what he is showing does not align with a picture of what you have.

that was the only hit that I got with SearchTempest.com


apparently, you are going to have to call up a lot of salvage yards.

64531-MG9-770 is the proper part number. As suggested scrap yards or look for a complete fairing.

That bracket is probably going to be tough to find on its own. I might be tempted to take some steel plate, cut and bend it to fit, and drill/tap it for the screws. I suppose you could also tack-weld some nuts in place, like was done on the original.

Stuart, no, that is the actual base of the mirror and the part I need is the one that it bolts to inside the fairing. Thanks for the effort.

Well, for now, this won't be an option, I won't be able to start it till I have done some more work on things.

I just pulled the fairing and mount off to clean out a rats nest and see about some other wire damage. Rat/mouse chewed the wires to the radio and cluster and built a nest in the fairing that went from the harness connector on the left side (sitting on the bike) all the way around to under the air compressor on the right side. This nesting held water inside the fairing and resulted in the rusting of the fairing mounts and some parts like the radio amp and terminal component (this terminal also has one lead on it chewed by a mouse/rat) so both of them and the radio harness will be replaced. Then, once the fairing and all is mounted back in place the motor work (fuel pump, filter and timing belts) will be addressed and hopefully, she will start and run good and I can test the Stator and decide on the Poorboy kit. I was considering starting a "winter rebuild" post series here if the admin doesn't mind.

Yes, I have researched it for a while and did some calling before I posted it here. Hoping for a lucky part find.

One guy near me has it but wants $25 for it. Plus I have to drive to pay and get it so hoping for a quicker one.

Well, I did think of that, also making my own poor boy brackets, but I don't have the parts and welding skills for that.

Ok, gotcha. You need the INNER bracket. I have some friends that own a couple of bike salvage yards back in Tennessee, The best I can do is call them after the holidays to find out if they have what you're looking for and connect you to them for price and shipping. that part fits a lot of different years and models of G/W. Anywhere from an 84 to and 86 will fit.

Good going CH1200, nice find. Not sure what 11 euros comes out to in USD, but im sure to aspencade.sei, whatever the cost is, it'll be worth every cent.
