We had a customer bring us his 85LTD for some wiring and lighting.
We were to install a customer supplied harness that was supposed to improve charging and reduce
resistance. We opened the package that the harness was in and immediately put it
back in. The harness consisted of incorrect gauge wiring that was sloppily assembled.
There was no way we were going to install that harness, so we made our own.
The photo might not be much,
but this harness increases the gauge of wiring between the regulator and the
magneto, along with multiple other functions. We also feed the coils
straight from the battery. We (and our customer) had heard that these type
of mod's would increase power, but never believed it
until our customer called to confirm it did.
follow some of the Internet Discussion Boards or another website, there are some
statements being made about our harness and our company. While we normally
would disregard such statements, we feel the need to set the record straight.
for our rebuttal.
Here is a letter from a customer regarding the harness;
"Just a little note from a very satisfied customer who purchased and
installed the GL1200 Stator/Coil Harness on his 1985 Gold Wing with
I am very pleased with the increase in performance given by driving the
coils directly from the battery. Low end torque has increased as has
the overall derivability of the bike. Plenty of power. Really happy!
The increased size of the wire going to the regulator helps I'm sure but
the direct grounding cut out the whine I was getting in my intercom.
I am pleased with the results, easy to install and does everything you
said it would do."
