New from Northern California
Just picked up a 1985 Honda goldwing 1200 limited about 2 weeks ago. I knew about the stator issue with it so I started using Google and found out about the conversion kit. Figured I'd better become a member of one of the forums now as it's going to be a nice project to work on and I'm sure I'll have questions. I was always a crotch rocket fan, owned a couple cruisers though. I had suzuki gs550e and an old 750 Hondamatic. Now it's time for me to give a goldwing a try

The day I got it

Looks pretty good, welcome aboard!

Thanks Roger, been testing the stator and reg, looks like I will do the alternator conversion kit here soon. Readings show a bad stator as far as I can tell from reading around.

Ya from what I read, it sounds like it's shot. I did mine last year, it wasn't too bad. I took my time, it took me a couple of days to do it and it's been good since.

Did a bunch of testing and connection fixes and the stator is good, each wire puts out 6+ volts. Got the bike back together and ready for a road test.

never never use the side stand or the center stand when trailering your bike.
either use a chock and or four straps

you risk cracking the frame.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I got the lights working now. This has turned out to be a very fun project, I also picked up the matching helmet.
