Ok brethern, heres a question regarding a conversation I had,couple wks. ago with a former GW owner while at a biker event.



Anyhow,he said he had once owned a ,think it was a 89 or 92 & how it was a great ride,but, sometimes the alternator brush springs will corrode,causing the brushes to loose tension on the armature & cause it to stop charging:(& fail w/o warning!



He said it was easy enough to chg,by replacing the brushes using stainless steel springs as replacements.



Now,,is this a project I should put on my "to do" list this winter?? or can it wait till later.I have a 1990 Aspy w/ 23 thou.on it :bow:

I've replaced 3 sets of worn out brushes, and the springs were never rusted.

Regardless, it's about a 2hr job to replace the brushes and springs (which come together when you buy the brushes)
