you said the alternator needs to run counter clockwise for the alt. fan to cool the alt. right

cause i might be wrong but isnt yours running clockwise if so the idea i was going to run with will have the alt. turned 180 degrees but still running off of the flywheel so that should reverse rotation if im correct

Yes, your correct. I mentioned above I wasn't worried about it as its in the wind.
As for things lining up, I thought about the 180 flip too. But the way I was mounting it, it
Would have been out to far for my liking. The best option would be to locate one that was
Proper rotation. If its a concern.

Honestly, by the time I reized that I had already purchased my alternator.
If I was to do it again, I would research it better & get a proper rotation.
Now I'm curious. I'm going to look into that.

The alternator I bought had a clockwise orientation & the engines rotation
Is counter clockwise.

I think all you have to do is change the fan.

when me and wolfie were talking the other day he told me about putting the alt where the goat used to be now if you run the same style drive unit that you did off of the flywheel but ran the belt twards the rear to a shaft bolted to the frame with carrier bearings and a pulley on each end you could have the alt that you are using bracketed onto the rear of the motor or on the frame just behind the motor and have it facing the right side of the bike thus hiding the alt from view and from some dust and dirt and turning it counter clockwise and still be able to have forward controls or a crash guard or if i ever get the design right you can have one of my highway bars and use wolfies forwards

if i get my highway bars designed right they will be to where you would have your feet sticking thru the bars to use the forwards so your legs will be protected from collision well some what protected anyways

Kanuck, did you leave the rotor in place or take it out? Curious if the rotor has anything to do with balancing.

the rotor would have to stay in place for two reasons

1. you are correct it is what balances the motor and is key in the starting of the engine since the starter actually spins the balance shaft and the balance shaft turns the rotor

2. the pickup coils read off of the contact plate on the outside of the rotor

you can however toss the stator out and also the r/r
