Good evening for some and good morning to others! I have a 83 Gl1100 aspy and the ignition switch has finally come completely. I have taken it apart and it was literally in pieces. I need to know if a 84' 1200 ignition switch is the answer. I have read a couple of places that they have been able to get this to work. If it is the answer, can some please please tell me what I have to do to make this happen?

Much appreciated!

The GL1200 switch has a screwed on back cover for ease of serviceability and strength, the '83 GL1100A has a snapped on back cover which when comes off, never seems to go back on. Also, note the GL1200 switch is 1 inch longer in the neck.



The '83 GL1100A switch has a 6 wire plug, the GL1200 has a 8 wire plug, with 7 wires going to it. The extra brown wire is just another ACC wire, not really needed.

I just removed the pins from the 8 position connector, and inserted them into the 6 position connector of the GL1100A.



As far as the 1" longer neck, you can either live with the key slot being 1 inch higher than before, or you can add spacers at the mounting point, and longer bolts. That will move the switch down the amount of spacer you put in, but at that point you lose the ability to key lock the handlebars in the fully turned position
