thanx so much for the sites you suggested ya'll are a God send will troubleshoot tomorrow hopefully if I can find my meter.LOL so if stator cks out I can assume alternator? That's my guess...Strongfellow..(Chas)
after you check the stator and hardwire the wires if you still have problems,look for burned wires at the regulator and if so hardwire those connections with minimum 12 ga but 10 ga where possible,my sei had identical problem which ended up being the reg connectors
I had the same problem on my new project gl1200. Was running 11 now over 14v. I first metered out the regulator and stator both checked good. I used the Honda Manual for the specs. I have the haynes also either is good. Specs are posted here also I'm sure. I found that I had some dirty connections, cleaned them, applied small amount of dielectric grease "careful to not let the grease bleed from pin to pin." No problems now.
honda should have recalled them all and put this on it anyway. do it now don't wait any longer you'll really never feel fulfilled until you do it. just do it you'll love it. 27 amps at 800 rpm! i mean really. it's a no brainer. no plugs no grease no hassle had to show it again i'm sorry. i really kinda love it.
