A couple of questions. Im slimming down the bike with a redesign. I don’t need the tachometer and is there anyway to plug the hole on the fuel pump where the tach cable connects? Really don’t want to replace fuel pump with aftermarket.
Thanks

I guess you can spin an aluminum plug to replace the cable. Really, if you are going this far why not have a cover machined to replace the pump/drive (still need to cover the worm on the cam shaft) and go to a low pressure electric?

If just omitting the tach drive, I'd remove the gear (and seal) from the case too just to eliminate unnecessary spinning parts.

For now I just cut the cable and capped the portion that fits in pump. Later I will probably switch to electric.
Thanks

If it were me... I'd probably throw a piece of aluminum in the lathe or mill and make a cover, but I'd probably also find a way to tuck a little reluctance sensor (coil and polepiece) and something to slip on the shaft, to use as the electronic signal for a little digital tach... but I don't have a GL of your vintage, so I can't rightfully say how I'd do it.

There are freeze plugs in various sizes that you can probably find one to fit. One it's in, a little JB Weld to make it semi-permanent, sand and paint.

Question on wiring.
The 2 blue wires on this aftermarket switch is for the new headlight (3 prong)
The OEM wires going to the headlight are blue, green, white. On the OEM switch I have blue, white and Blue/white stripe ( i checked the blue/white striped wire on the schematic and this wire leads from the OEM switch to the starter.
So..... I only have two wires on the back of my new switch (does not have high/low beam) Which oem wires will go to my new switch?
hope you can help.
thank you

Update! I have not tested it yet but from what I'm seeing on the schematic, the blue/white striped wire might be the power, so this will go to new switch. The other two remaining wires white and blue are the high or low beam, so either one of those will also go to the switch , then just not connect one.
Thoughts?

Surely there’s someone on here that can guide me through some wiring. I have most of it figured out but am stumped with how to connect some of my aftermarket switch wires to the oem switch wires. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

When I try to wire aftermarket switches into existing wires, I've always had problems. That's why I haven't been saying much

I'm watching this, too. I have to replace my right Start button switch, which has 9 wires, with an after market which has 6 wires. :shock:

Note that on the '78 and '79 GL1000, two wires went to the right switch in Europe for the headlight ON/OFF. The feed came from one phase of the alternator. In the US it was just jumpered in the plug.
