Hello all,

I need some help. I am traveling and have a problem with some of my gauges etc. Gauges and equipment affected are temp, fuel, neutral light, revese and reverse gear. I think I have a loose ground wire. Please help with any information. Thanks, Ronnie Wetherington

I still have a similar problem. My gauges and all accessories, also went out, checked the fuses, all okay, still can't find the problem, so now I'm down to a "must go" to dealer and pay the $70.00 / hour for the expert to find the problem. Probably should have done that to begin with Let me know if / when you find the answer. Tx & Rgds - Buster

Just a thought, but I seem to remember past postings where folks found out their alternator brushes were gone. If I remember correctly, new brushes and rear bearing for gl1500 alternator can be had for less than 30 bucks, and its not a horribly difficult job to do.



Good luck guys!!

currently no wing, recuperating from accident, but will be on an 1800 soon!

Thanks everone for the input. I havent had a chance yet to do much searching for the answer to this problem yet. Luckily no other problems have arisen and we are still touring the southeastern portion of the US. I am going to continue with our trip and I will start to diagnose the problem when we get back to our home. We left New BernNC on 5/17 and have visited Nashville, Memphis, Isle Casino in Lula Ms., and today we have traveled to Vicksburg. From here, we will continue on to Natchez Ms., New Orleans, Orange Beach Al., Jacksonville Fl., Savannah Ga., Charleston SC, then back home on 6/7/08. Again thanks for any input

Hello everyone,

Well we have completed our tour of the Southeastern US and are now back home. It was a wonderful trip, even with the little glitch in the electrical system. We rode just over 2800 miles thru eight states. The weather was a bit on the warm/humid side but we only rode in rain on the second day out thru the NC mountains to Knoxville Tn. and an occasional light sprinkle here and there.

Just for everyones information, I have located the the culprit that created my electrical issue while traveling. The no. 3 relay had gone bad and was not sending current to the rear lights and several dash indicators. Unfortunately I had to order the relay but it will be here around midweek. I guess this is one of the downfalls of owning a bike that is beyond ten years old or not the most current model in service.

I do have a questionfor my fellow wingriders.

Does anyone know an easy way to gain access to the relay box so the cover can be removed? It fits so closely behind the left saddlebag that I had to loosen the bag and other attachments to gain enough room toremove the cover from the panel so I could analyze the problem.

Once again, thanks to everyone for your support and input. I hope that my final input about the relay willbe of some help to anyone else that may experience a similar problem. Also, remember that if you have a similar problem with your bike that actually breaks you down somewhere and a relay is the problem you can remove #3 Relay and replace the bad one to get back on the road. All but one relay in the box is a 12V 20Amp.

Thanks, Ron and Pam
