New to Goldwings

Hello everyone,
I'm Jesse. I'm new to the Goldwing world but i currently have a 84 GL1200A after a few weeks of replacing stator and now having a bad rectifier i have decided to do a poorboy conversion. Have done some research on it, but would like some feedback on best practices if those that have the knowledge care to share also i will gladly take pictures of my project and post them on here to share with others.

Thanks in advance

Jesse. Why not just replace the rectifier?

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Planning on it, but from my understanding of that this model the stator goes out often and would rather have something more reliable and easy to work on instead of pulling the motor to replace a stator

The stator will go out if the bike isn't maintained and repaired correctly. If you correctly installed a quality stator and use a quality regulator, you should never have to worry about it again.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I just got a regulator on amazon for 15, the stator I’m not sure what brand it was for it came with the bike when I bought it

Don't be surprised if that regulator either never works or doesn't last long. This is a good upgrade http://www.roadstercycle.com/Shinden...or%20about.htm
