And she charges!

Stator test came out at well over 70 VAC for all three legs. soldered the wires.

Seeing 14V+ on the battery at 2000+ RPMs again.

Thanks all!

That's good news.

Still, make sure you look at the connectors on the regulator. Check that they're not heating up too much when the bike is running. Warm is normal.

Decided to take a little ride yesterday, went about 6 miles. She no longer charges properly, even with a new stator and reg/rec. Battery died and I was able to get a jump and charged enough to get back home.

While running, hook up my voltmeter, battery very slowly drains or stays the same, no longer seeing 14+ volts while running. When running, runs like a goldwing should, just a bit of popping through the carbs between 1000-2000 rpms.

The first few start ups after rebuild, was seeing at least 14V while running, so she was charging great. Stator, reg/rec, and battery are brand new.

I'm running 10-40w high quality oil with a little bit of marvel mystery oil. I may have about 1/4 quart too much oil in there - was using the marvel to get the engine nice and clean after 20 years of not running, could that have affected stator?

Stator: https://www.randakks.com/upgraded-st...nd-gl1201.html
reg/rec: https://www.randakks.com/regulator-r...00-gl1000.html


It could possibly be a loose connection but doubtful , I'll go over it more thoroughly when I have time.

Any initial ideas/testing procedure/things I could check that might be cause her to randomly stop charging?
proly should have put a external alternator on it . would be an easy fix this time around.

life is good.

Me, I'm damn glad to hear that!!

Excellent news, for both of us.

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."

For those with stator problems, it's interesting to note that Honda is offering a stator for the 12s again. Oddly, it shows 3 different part numbers, so, figure that out before you buy.

They are all supersessions, figure out which one is available and order it, they are all the same part.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

But only for 86/87 models.
I'll believe it when someone has one in his grubby hands.

There's something odd about it, for sure. I suspect there was a return of the entire assembly from a shop that closed down somewhere, and the warehouse people couldn't figure which part number...

Isn't the stator the interchangeable between the S, I and A models?
