It is an easy job to replace the PG's on an 85-87 1200 since they are located behind the timing belts under the front covers as oppossed to the rear of the 84 engine I usually remove the rad to give me more room to work. Might as well replace the coolant as well. Check all the hoses and clamps at the same time. The big thing to check is the timing belts. It might be wise to change them at the same time if they have not been done in the recent past. At the very least check the tension of the belts. Just remove the bolts securing the PG's and remove them , follow the cable up to the connector plug . Simply reverse this procedure to re-install the new ones..............GM

I'm sorry I answered your question assuming that you had an 85-87 1200. If it is an 84 it will be a completely different process..What year is your bike?.....GM

I was wondering, why did you change the pulse generator? Just curious, I am new to the goldwing. I have an 85 ltd with an electrical problem.

After the bike warmed up it wouldn't start after you shut it off.I would have to wait about 15 minutes and then it would start.now it will start warmed up.Good luck with your problem.:waving:
