I felt electrical was appropriate. But what ever.
The local shop charged me $50 for the part to be made.
I did forget to mention & I'll add it in there. The bracket
That holds the alt & pulley, I made as well.
The alt I used was $70, add up all the little parts & pieces,
Came out around $200.

The process in which I did the floorboards can be applied to many out there.
Here is the write up on that though.

I have been waiting on this ,Jason and I had talked some while he was working this out and I have been hounding him with questions about how it worked out and such.

Glad to see this on here and also glad your charging issues are over. That is one thing that will remain a mystery is why that particular bike ate stators. Good job Kanuck and I'm glad you got it out of Beta and it is public now.

There you go boys now it has been done, To bust out a little StarTrek on ya,he "boldly went where no man has gone" lol.

Check this out, just stumbled onto it, didn't know it existed.

This is from a 2000 Suzuki Bandit GSF-600, a gear drive alternator:

that reminds me of another kawasaki that had an external alt.

an early (dont remember the year) voyager 12. 1200cc inline water cooled 4. had the alt kinda between the bank of carbs and the block if I remember right. dont remember if belt or gear drive tho.

mid 80's it appears to be the one I was looking at, maybe 87 or 88

Awesome Job!!
I am glad you had the nads to try this and prove to all it can be done...lol
I was wondering when someone was going to try this, but I wasn't expecting it to be done on a such a "pretty" bike.

Excellent job...thanks for sharing!
