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.
