i will bet the alternators that come with the GL1800 when new are also made in ChinaI have purchased one from Ebay and it says "Made in China" on it. I hope to get it installed next week and I'll give a report on it after it's in. The ad for it made it sound like it was an OEM alternator, which disappointed me. I plan to rebuild my original if it doesn't cost too much, and I'll keep it as a spare.
Yes that is what I remember of what Rick went through when stuck in TX.He was going to return it when he got back home.someone on this board bought one of those ebay alternators when his Honda alternator went bad on a trip and no Honda dealer where he was had one in stock, last i heard it worked but was making unusual noise so he was going to try getting the ebay seller to replace it under warranty, thats the last i heard
I agree.This will get lost on the general board and some guys needing to find this info later on won't think to look in old Geleral board threads.Don't know about the alternators, but I was wondering why this was moved from Tech, seem to be a Tech question to me.
I would have posted it here too. :shrug:
