GL1000 Reg/Rec

Hi folks,

So on my 1977 GL1000 there is a 7v regulator on the left side. All this time I thought it was for the fuel and temperature gauges. Since there is one by the battery box, I thought it was the main R/R. That was only a Rectifier.
My temp and fuel gauges aren't working, so I wanted to work on the Reg and make my own. But that Regulator was something else. Different look and shape.

So does that mean GL1000 runs on 7v (the entire bike)?

Also, is there a way to verify the water pump is working?

Thanks

There is a 7v regulator for the gauges in the left side of the false tank, separate from the charging regulator. It is small, about 1" square IIRC and has 3 wires, don't remember the colors.
Does it overheat? Not very likely the water pump quit entirely.

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

7V Regulator.

The 12V regulator does have three wires, Yellow, Green and Black.

Just something else I forgot.
