(I apologize for the blurry pics.)
Howdy! My wife's uncle recently acquired a well-worn GL1200 Interstate. The battery wasn't charging and it was running pig-rich, so he asked me to take care of it (for a modest fee, of course
) I've replaced the stator and gotten the carbs cleaned and adjusted (floats were set waaayyy too high), and I'm getting ready to put everything back together, but the PO left a lot of little surprises I need to deal with first.
Besides the usual nonsense (SAE fasteners forced into/onto metric threads, plastics held on with sheetmetal screws, etc.), there are a lot of things that were left dangling loose after the fairings were painted. The air pump and distribution/proportioning/whatever-it-is valve were just dumped on top of the airbox, under the false tank lid. I've done some searching and apparently it mounts *somewhere* inside the RH fairing, but I've no idea exactly where or how.
Here are 3 electrical components on the right side:
And here are 3 empty mounting tabs (again, sorry about the picture quality):
The rectangular box with the red connector looks like it could go here (square rubber strap behind frame neck):
But there's a similar box on the left side with no obvious mounting place:
Lastly, here's the fusebox:
Everything behind the bullet connector on the brown wire was a mess of tape, twisted wires, and Scotchblocks. Same goes for the green wire on the ground side; I've torn it all out to start over.
I thank you in advance for any tips, suggestions, descriptions, photos, or moral support you can offer to help me get this mess sorted out.
