Gl1500 and GL1800 have external alternators that can be easily changed. The GL1000, GL1100, and GL1200 you have to remove the motor completely or at least unbolt it and rotate it enough to get the rear cover off.

Just had a guy put clutches in my 01 warrior. it blogged down before giving to him and he told me it needed clutches,was procrastinating on job, so i took back.

as your problem description is vague, I suggest that you take the bike to an accredited bike mechanic for a proper diagnosis of the problem
people who procrastinate over a job generally do not know what they are doing
clutches do not blogg down an engine but slip, grab or generally do not release so the problem may have not been the clutch at all

I've checked with an Ohm meter and have continuity

If you are checking from one of the stator prongs to engine ground and you get continuity, your stator is bad. It would probably be a good idea to replace the regulator. I think Harley sells a kit that is priced fairly reasonable. But, check the rotor. I've seen one rotor that didn't have any magnetism in it. That's right, It was a genuine Harley part and the rotor had no magnetism in it. It was a friend of mine that put the stator in another guy's bike but it wouldn't charge. I checked everything and found nothing wrong except no output. Pulled it down and that's what we found. We simply put the guy's old rotor on it and it worked fine.

Good Luck

I have a 97 Cavalier 2.2L, and i just replace the clutch on the car. Thinking that i will be saving, I let this guy friend of mine put the clutch in for me. I was told that to get to the clutch you have to...

Could be the starter isn't seated properly, some vehicles have a sheet metal shim spacer between the starter and engine block to align the teeth on the starter and flywheel. Make sure if it had one he put it back in. The starter could be going bad also.

Neutral light won't turn on and bike won't start

The click u hear means your neutral isn't the problem, it means your new battery is trying to start the engine, however the power isn't making it to the starter. check the battery cables for good connection in the ends of the wires and at the start relay (the positive wire from the battery goes to the start relay that may need replacing) also from the start relay that you hear clicking down to the starter.make sure cable and nuts that hold them are clean in good shape. to get the neutral lite to come on the side stand doesn't do it, the shift lever does. you can be sure you are in neutral when the bike can roll without the clutch being pulled.If the bike is in neutral and the lite doesn't come on then replacing the bulb or sensor might be necessary.

Yamaha XV 1600 Will not start. Starter motor works but will not engage the engine to turn it over. The battery is new. This has happened suddenly and without warming. Anyone know what the problem is?

The sprag clutch that kicks the starter gear into the flywheel is not engaging. This may involve splitting the engine/transmission case if you have to clean or replace that mechanism. I have had success running CD-2 as described here. You might try that before tearing into the bike.

85 goldwing 1200 slave unit

no, but it is the easiest way. i dropped the engine out of mine in about 45 min. with a floor jack and some hand tools. The only special item i had was the most excellent honda workshop manual. i took mine out going after the stator, and its right next to the clutch. i looked at the clutch and decided this was the best way for this as well. in-chassis clutch work would involve removal of the fuel cell, swing arm and all components attached to them (pain).

Stator repair

from what I am reading I should not be surprised. I was going to take it out and either rebuild it or get one off of Ebay but at first glance it looks more complicated than I thought. I have completed an electrical check regulator/stator connections look great but only get 5-22 vac off of stator and not consistent with rpm. How do I remove the stator? Any gaskets or things I should be careful of? Any pics out there of the covers removed? ,I think the stators on the 98's are oddballs, in that they produce a different wattage then others. New have more wattage, older ones have less. Either way, it's pretty much the same for replacement. You'll need to pull the left side case cover, to do that you need a case puller tool or you can make one. You can't get it off with a screwdriver or chisle. Well, maybe you can, but it'll be FUBAR. A puller plate bolts to the exiting holes for the crank shaft cover plate, 5 mm countersunk maybe? Between those two holes is a tapped hole, like 1/2-13 or 5/8-11 x 2 long bolt. That bolt will screw against the crankshaft, pulling the left side cover off. The plate thickness should be 3/8 steel or 1/2 aluminum. Throughly clean the engine cases. Remove shift linkage, clutch slave, drain radiator and all the bolts holding the left side cover on. There are a lot (15 -16?) make sure you get them all, especially near the countershaft sprocket and clutch slave area. The cover should slide off the engine dowel pins with a minimal amount of muscle on a 8 adjustable wrench. If not, you missed a bolt. Some oil will leak out when the cover is removed. The stator is held in the case cover by two or three bolts. Measure the height of stator in the case for reference. It should slide out of the case with the bolts removed. It's a tight fit, but not a press fit. Try these guys for rewinding or they may have a replacement stator in stock. Reassemble in reverse. Make sure the stator sits squarly in the case, not cocked to one side. Confirm the measured height. The stator/magnet will pull the cover off center. Use a rubber mallet to tap the cover into place, using the dowel pins for visual alignment. I use permatex blue to seal the case when reassembling. It's not that difficult to do, just time consuming, maybe 3 - 4 hours to get the cover off.,,,
