Lightbulb VN750 External Alternator TEASER!!

Ok, so as I teased earlier, here is a pic of the job.
I will say this. It was more challenging than I originally thought.
I will do a more indepth write up later.

It might actually be possible. The same thing is very common on 1200 Goldwings, someone even has a kit to make it easier. But on the Goldwing there is an easy way to attach the pulley to the end of the crankshaft, and you don't have any oil to deal with. It's also hidden up under the fairing, where it isn't dangerous.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

kanuck, hard to believe you had that much trouble.

I for one, would like to see you list your problems, any perceptions along with any other modifications, etc. Anything you think might be pertinent to repeated failures.

Yea the pulley bolts to the front of the crank and the cams run off of belts from the crank pulley

Thanks for the pic. Hadn't thought of a double pulley. A guard shouldn't be too terrible to do, the hard part is done.

The one I posted was a lot larger bike, the guy ran just one belt.
