Working with an 84 Aspencade 1200, The stator is in need of replacement and someone has already cut the plug out of the system and soldered the 3 yellow wires together. My question is: when I install the new stator I have no way of matching the wires to their respective positions on the new stator. Looking at the schematic, it looks as thought each of the three stator coils are the same so will it matter if the wires are connected differently than original. If so is there a way to differentiate?

Order dosen't matter. Probably why honda didn't color code.

Mind you, I know everything about nothing and nothing about everything.

Thanks you have eased my mind at least on this problem. I may earn one of those very active tags before this project is over. Cheers.

It's really not a bad job except for muscling the engine in and out. The Honda and Clymer manual give pretty good step by step instructions for pulling the engine.

I've always wonderedwho the brilliant guy was who designed the GL1200with that frame member right square in the way of the alternator housing.

Me and a buddy did my '87 1200 the beginning of this year so I can help with any pointers. It helps to have a set of hands on both sides of the bike, mainly when the carbs, exhaust and getting the driveshaft on the output shaft. (I went with RM Stator for $139) and much better insulated than OEM. Let me know if ya need anything.
