Temp Gauge Regulator

4763 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Shep
Hey all,

I have had intermittent problems with my temp gauge going all the way to the red. I put an aftermarket gauge on it just to assure myself that it wasn't really getting hot - it wasn't. I just zip-tied the indicator part to the handlebars
, and I had to remove the heat shield below the coils, so I would like to get the original working again.

My question is, should I go through the wires to the regulator and look for a faulty ground, or just go ahead and order one from Marshall? If I order one from Marshall, is there a direct link like to an order form, or do I just email and request info?

Thanks for the input guys. Sorry about mentioning Marshall. I never had the pleasure of hearing from him here, but I feel that he was part of the family and his loss saddens me as well.

Shep, I removed the heat shield because the aftermarket gauge I put on uses a copper line that would have crimped if I had left it in place. That is just part of the reason I really want to fix my original gauge.

I did check the wire that goes to the sending unit and it was showing 11+v. I have not yet traced the wires to see if I have grounded out somewhere else. Where would the regulator be on my GL? I opened up the panel behind the fairing but I didn't see it there; maybe I just missed it though.

Thanks again.
