By the way, I'm using

That is a nice looking LTD, I had one and sold it about 3 years ago. They are great Motorcycles and I do miss mine. Every where I went on that bike someone would comment about it. Yours look really clean someone took good care of it.

I enjoyed mine for 55k back in the day. Only issue I had was losing the stator @ 24k.

All Honda Lifetime 1200 stators came with a white band on the stator harness to identity.

First thing I did to this bike was pull out any connector from the stator to the regulator, and I ran my own wire all the way, soldering both ends.

The owner who had it before me had it mis-diagnosed as a bad stator due to no charging. But it turned out the connector at the regulator had burnt up.

less than $100 in parts and a few hours of clever wire wrapping and routing and it has not stranded me anywhere yet.
