You are seeing the very same thing that happened last October to my 89 GL 1500. My bike showed the same symptoms as you have described.

I replaced the alternator and the battery and I've not had a problem since. I did replace the OEM alternator with a high output alternator because of the extra lights that are on the motorcycle. Wish you the best and getting yours fixed

So, John, what is that tape holding, and why do you have a Harley plaque in your Honda's garage?


If I was your bike, I wouldn't start because of that crap.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I purposely left all of the Harley plaques in place, I thought it was funny

Goldwing signs are hard to find, I found one a number of years ago and bought it.

My boys got me the alternator, and it's here, but I neglected to say anything about the dampers. Itching to ride though. Trying to decide between just swapping it out now (since I've got time Sunday), or waiting until I order the dampers.

By the way, when you replace your alternator, be careful not to pinch the o-ring. You'll cause an oil leak.

No you don't. You just want to.

We got 50-ish miles into a ride the day after my son and I replaced the alternator, and I had a puddle under the bike at a fuel stop, and spray along the left saddlebag. Babied back to town and took it straight to the shop. The service writer called me that afternoon to tell me what we'd done, so I didn't sweat it all weekend.
