brought a new to me 1200 interstate home the other day. would not run. took carbs off and cleaned and now purrs. however while cleaning carbs, found a stator wire broken, so we soldered it back together. still, stator not working. ordered 1 and waiting for it to come in. started taking everything apart so i could replace stator when it arrives.

well, i find some badly burned wires on starter solinoid. although it would start and run

COULD this cause the stator not to charge properly?



that is the question. thank you all,

possibly, the stator might send it's current via the red/white wire from the regulator/rectifier which is connected through the 30 amp fuse then onto the battery.

Also check the plug by the regulator for discoloration and burning.

First thing to do is repair the starter relay wiring and wire in a heavy duty fuse holder and use a 30 amp spade fuse. Look at the plug above the relay and you will see four wires. Cut the two front ones.....one being red and the other is red and white. Wire them together and then attach a heavy duty fuse holder with a 30 amp spade fuse. Attach the other end to an eye ring connector and attach that to the positive side of the relay or easier still to the pos post of the battery. Make good solder joints and use heat shrink. Leave the two smaller gauge wires attached to their original spots on the relay. Remove the dogbone fuse and discard. This should repair the relay problem. Faulty wiring anywhere in the system may cause charging problems....however you will have torun the stator checks as explained in the service manual. If you dont have a manual you can download one from this site. You will be checking for shorts to ground , shorts within the windings and checking the stator output

If you have burned wireing you need to check the wireing also.Inside the fairing too. Need to get it up and running,I will need company for the trip to Llano soon. Do you need me to bring over my new multi meter and slack tube meter[manometer]?I will be available next weekend. Fred

Any time someone says "check out my manometer", I get shocked.

Hmmm! Guess you will have to figure out what a slack tube guage is for and where you can get it. Please post when you find out[ hint,it is use to sync the carbs on a multi carb setup]. Litfuse
