I am new today to this forum, been watching the site for a while though. I have a 86 gl 1200 i just got from my bro. It has a issue, will not start unless jumped, even with fully charged battery. I just changed the stater connector(the plug by the battery).still had to plug into a charger. Once it starts runs fine. charging 14 volts at low idle, but drops to around 12.7 above 2500 rpm. Is this normal for this bike?? My 82 gl1100 does not act like this at all. Any info would be great.
