I need help please I knew this day was coming I have a 1986 GL 1200 my charging system has been going out. I checked it today and at road speed RPM it was not putting out anything under 12v. I guess the next step is a poor boy kit. I don't know how to do that kind of stuff but what the heck. Where can I get the kit and instructions. Or is there something else to try first. Please help. thanks mcfirefighter.

What is the plug repair, and how do you do it. I can do it if I have instructions or a video or something.???
Just forward of the battery is a plug with three yellow wires coming in and going out.
If that plug is starting to melt you may have found the problem.
The usual repair is to bypass the plug soldering the connections.
First verify that each yellow wire on the stator side of the plug has continuity to each other yellow wire and none of them have continuity to ground.
