Good morning!

My 1200 is not charging the battery-I know that this is a sometimes problem on these bikes. What's your opinion:

Is it almost always the stator needing replaced?

I had one mechanic tell me that the new stators, once installed, almost never fail.

Should I try replacing voltage regulator first?

Should I but the stator from the Hondal dealer or is there a cheaper alternative that is as good?

Thanks, suggestions are appreciated, this is my first goldwing

Have you tested the output with a meter first? You want to know if the output is coming from the stator end and if it is you will need to check where the loss is, ie at the connector plug, regulator etc. There are many threads here explaining how to test the system.

Hello dadysgrat; Clip on a voltmeter to the battery and raise the RPM up to 2,000 rpm. Shpuld have 14 plus volts. If you go to the side menu and click on Bikers Workshop and then scroll down to #20 Stator Testing. Let us know what results you get. Also check if the white plug in front of the battery is good or has been cut out and soldered. Also if you open the false tank lid and pull out the storage container, you can check the wiring harness to the regulator which is to the left. Check for wiring discolor, burning, frayed. Tony.

Thanks for your valuable help- the starter soelenoid was burned and some of the wires leading to it needed to be replaced-now charging properly and I am riding happily!!
