Hello, Shilo.

Nice to meet you.
Let us know what the charging system on the wing is doing and we will help all we can to get it going again.

Welcome to the site!!! As far as your charging issue check the charging/electrical section of the main page and any questions you have should be answered there. If not ask. I'm sure somebody will be able to help with advise!

After you get her running and if you're going near the South Holston Dam area gimme a shout and we'll ride the "Snake" from there over to Shady Valley!! 8)

Welcome to the group, there is a lot of info. here about charging problems and how to test and fix them. I had to learn a lot about the 1200 charging system, to fix my bike but now it is working perfectly.

Good luck with your bike.

Welcome from Guelph Ontario Canada.

Only been a member here a short while, but the knowledge that the membership has regarding the 1200 is awesome.

Mentioned something to my mechanic the other day about the poor boy solution and he had never heard of it.
I never told him neither had I until I saw it here. :lol:
That kid did what?

Hello Shilo and Welcome to the forum, I believe you'll find that there are several riders on line here from the Great State of Tennessee maybe we'll all have the opportunity to meet up on a ride sometime.
