Sorry Bob, not enough info. What usually causes melted wiring in my experiance of wiring is poor wiring practices. There really is no reason for any Goldwing wiring to give trouble so I would bet that there may be some accessories that were not fuse protected or the wiring was not large enough. Once one wire starts to melt it will take the others with it.

By the way good luck on the bike & Welcome to the GWOF.

Welcome to GWOF from Down Under. You will need to get more detail as to where the problem is and wait for someone that knows. I just hate electrical problems. And so as to not hijack you I will have to ask my simular question. Eric

The only 1100 wiring I've worked on was on the left side to replace some melted wires going to the alternator. If it is the alternator wiring, I recommend soldiering the connection over push connectors.

Make sure you check these wires, with all those extras on the bike this is probably melted. Also check the stator for volt out put,
