I am the owner of a 1983 Interstate with 63,800+ miles showing. I have eliminated the connector from the alternator to the regulator and everything seems to be working great. Now here is my concern. Should I be concerned about brush wear/reliability before I leave on a 6,000+ mile trip across the US? I have seen many posts for GL1200 problems but not many for 1100s. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.

1100 wings don't seem to have stator troubles like the 1200's and if you don't want to cut out the connector clean all the old grease and dirt out then put fresh dielectric grease back in it and reconnect the plug. don't forget the regulator, either hardwire it like you did the stator or clean and repack it

goldwing charging

changed my stator and hardwired my plug, seems to be charging but was wondering if 14 volts at about 1500 rpm is too much voltage??

Since I Changed The Stator On My 1200 Last Year,i Carry A Solar Battery Charger(purchased At Harbor Freight For 20 Bucks) I Cut Off The Lighter Plug And Soldered On Alligator Clips.its About The Size Of A Car License Plate And Fits Nicely In The Bottom Of The Side Luggage,works Well For Your Boat Too! Hope This Helps,lazz
