I know, another stator question

Been surfing the forums and can't find the answer to my question. The stator on my 85 Aspencade just gave up the ghost. I have one from a 79 GL1000 and would like to know if they are interchangeable. I understand that I should probably replace with a new one but monetarily it's not possible at this time and I love tearing things apart. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked the 3 yellow wires at the connector?

What testing have you done to prove the stator is bad?

3 areas can cause non-charging,
1) stator connector
2) regulator connector
3) solenoid connector
if the mc has already had the stator connector hardwired,you can always test at the mc side of the regulator connector

To answer your original question, yes a 1000 stator will work in a 1200. I had one in mine for about 1000 miles before it got cooked due to a defective regulator. There is also someone over at ClassicGoldwings that has a 1000 stator in his 1200 motor for several years with no problems.

I have gone through all the testing and have made all the modifications mentioned. The final nail in the coffin was when I could only get 2.0 volts ac out of the stator wires at 3000 rpm. Ian glad to hear I can use the stator I have as I was about to take all the parts from GL1000 to recycle motorcycle. I will keep everyone informed as to my progress.
Thank,
Vern

That would be 2 volts with the stator disconnected from the reg/rec?

Yes I came off the yellow wires on some spade connectors from an earlier modification, the infamous yellow wire fault. I've been chasing these electrical gremlins for the last 3 years and replaced the reg/rec last year. But every minute I can I'm riding her.

The GL1000 stator has lower output than the GL1200 stator so if you're commuting in stop and slow traffic it may not keep up.

That said with a good battery and an occasional at home charge you shouldn't have any problem.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

I was lucky enough to get another stator out of a 1200, thanks to my brother. A weekend pulling the engine and replacing the stator. When I started it up I was getting 14.9 Volts at the battery, haven't had that since I bought the bike. Needless to say I am overjoyed as I wasn't looking forward to pulling the engine again if it didn't work. Thanks to all who posted I love this site!!
