Pulleys? Why put more load on a motor that does not make alot of power to start with?
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......

Another idea, but maybe a bit more complicated...
Remove the stator and modify the engine cover with some sort of bushing or seal or something in a way that a pulley can be driven in place of the stator... modifying the engine cover in a way that the pulley itself is outside the engine but can still be driven instead of the stator. After that, it's just a matter of finding a spot to mount the alternator so the alt pulley can be driven with a belt.
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.

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.
