Looks and sounds just right to me Ray. Nice job.

For all you 1100 owners out there, I just sent Mr. Piggott (Poorboy) the 3-view of my tested, tried, and true upper mounting bracket for the 1100, so it won't be long and he'll have that available too.

That is exactly what I did. Got the poorboy installed and then went to the forks and brakes. I put in a progressive spring set in the forks.



I can't see the video.

12.2v at idle is way too low...
Actually it is idling too low at the moment, I haven't got that far yet;)the idle is about 780-800 at the moment. Plus this is a used junk yard alternator, when funds pick up I will have it rebuilt or get a new one.

Looks good, Ray. A slightly larger crank pulley will solve the idle charging problem. Here is a picture of the alternator I stuck on the right side of my 82 1100 Aspencade. It works well and as you can see I cut part of the fairing away just to accommodate it. I believe the 82 Aspencade's fairing is a little narrower that the 85 and 86 I owned. Early Toyota Carolas can probably supply the two row crank pulley. I couldn't locate one new so I am using the standard pulley which will not charge fully until 1800 to 2000 rpm. Thats OK for trips but a little inconvenient for around town where there may be a lot of sitting at stop lights on discharge. Whatever, sure beats hauling that whole chunk of aluminum meat out of the frame for alternator problems.

Alright, Squirts member and builder of that fabulous grey Goldwing Rat bike, how much $$ have you put into that great bike so far. When visiting the pages of motorcycle magazines these day's it is obvious that if you have enough money you can buy anything you want, but only a truly resourseful motorbiker with an eye for value can put together what you have. Bravo!! Does my heart good.

I have purchased Don's kit, but have not had a chance to get it installed yet. What do you have to do the lower cowl? :?:?

I did minimal trimming to the back of the lower, instead I opted to trim some of the excess slag off the back edge of the alternator to make fitment a bit tighter and cleaner.
