I have an 86 goldwing with 35,000 miles, and recently discovered that it is no longer charging. I was out on a ride when it decided to quit, luckily a short distance from home. I charged the battery back up to 12.6 volts, then started the bike and discovered that I was only getting 11.8 volts back to the battery, even at higher rpm's. I have heard that these models have had some issues with the stator. I would really appreciate any info and or things to test in hopes to fix this issue. I also noticed that the connector that is located next to the battery ( 4wires ) got hot and melted the plastic that surrounds the wires, another issue with these models, the melted connector has been this way since I have owned the bike, since spring of "08" Thanks.
