An Unsolicited letter from a happy
I would recommend the harness to
anyone with an older Goldwing. Good work Mr. Campbell you have a fine
And, a little note from a Do It
Yourselfer who just proves it all over... Wanna do it yourself?
Unlike many others, I could care less if you DIY - in fact, I encourage
DIY as much as possible, ESPECIALLY when it comes to repairs. Unlike
"others," I'm not in this for the money, or I'd charge $50 like the
rest. I'm in it for the RIDERS.
The Harness, and a total repair of
the GL problems, is not quite as simple as what this man did, but he
has enough technical experience to figure the rest out.
"Hi David, I've taken your advice and rewired the coils as you told me. I happen to have the real Honda GL1200 shop manual with all of the electrical wiring diagrams. I also happen to be an electrician and a pretty good control tech. After your last letter I started tracing out the stock wiring and you are correct. It sucks! After going to your web site a number of times and reading about your harness and all of the different wiring crimps and redirection of voltage that Honda does at the factory I thought your way of thinking had to be much better. So here is what I did. All of the wiring that I did was with #12 stranded wire. The three yellows from the stator I soldered three new wires eliminating the harness. Made sure the wires are all the same length and soldered them to there proper place on the regulator. The red wire on the regulator I brought directly to the battery. The black and white wire at at the coils I disregarded and ran a new wire directly to the battery. The blue/yellow and the yellow/blue wires coming from the ICU which control the coil I cut and soldered by passing the plug in harness at the ICU. I just got back from a ride on the bike. I have to tell you, not only did the miss go away but the bike has a lot more power now! This thing is sick! I thought I was on a different bike for a minute. Before I was getting 14.4 at the battery. I just took a reading and I'm getting 14.4 at the rear tail lights. So listen man, I realize your probably thinking to your self that you lost a harness sale but I have to ask for a favor. Is there any thing else I should re wire and solder instead of using the stock Honda connectors on my bike. I know this is a stretch me asking you for more help but I can tell you are the best and most knowledgeable out there and I trust you. So from one GL1200 man to another, what else would you do? Thank you very much for getting me in the right direction with my bike. I was thinking about trading it in for a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad cruiser, but not any more. Awaiting your reply, Scott."
