Desert Dog I am going to replace the pulley on the alt and put a small wheel there and replace one of my training wheels!

This one would require fabrication and the pulley and belt system might protrude too much to the side of the bike, making it implausible... but still, it's an idea... it might spark another idea that is better.
No, the engine mod would be pretty simple and not require removing the engine or the stator. Just remove the timing cover over the stator/flywheel and replace the bolt on the end of the crankshaft. Then run a lightweight chain or belt up to an alternator mounted in front of the engine.

There's some more info in this old thread:

clock152 I was thinking that if you are degoated you might have room there to mount one some way to have it runn off of the rear tire maybe.

Take your "hubless wheel" design, and build a small tubine impeller. Place it in the exhaust. Outer rim is toothed and runs the generator off an inclosed reduction box. You could route both pipes through it, just replace the goats belly with it.

Or, just run a small "windmill" on top of the front fender......
hahahahahahaha....

carolesteven So, this would be the cure to all our stator problems?

kanuck69 Here's a possibility of what you could use.



JEGS 1-Wire Alternator means just that--simply connect one wire from the alternator to the battery and you're done.
This line of alternators features an internal voltage regulator and turbo fan to keep internal components cool. Made in USA.

Finding the place to mount it & look decent is the trick. Connecting it to thre system is easy enough.

Under $70 By the way.
