new rider 9984 Yes i tried it without the lead connected and it did not charge but remember i am running a different alternator than you did

kanuck69 Have you tried running it with that lead not connected?
03-23-2015 06:00 AM
kanuck69 Well, that's good to hear then. For the average rider this wouldn't affect their cornering. Hell, I wish I had thought of that option now. Ltms

As for the wiring, I understood the wiring as the second connector on the alternator was for the idiot light. I did not have that connected. Just the 12v power feed & the voltage sensing lead was connected. I had no back feed & it shut off with the bike. I'd double check that way you have it connected is correct.

I extended both pegs out about 1 1/4 inches the left to accommodate the belt and the right to match the left

the stock height of the pegs is high enough to allow for this and if you are grinding pegs on this bile stock or with my design then either you are crazy or a very good rider

i am both lol i have dipped into a 30mph corner at 55mph since this mod just to see if it was capible of peg slaping and i did not touch down but the rear end did have a bit of a loose feeling like i was on the verge of disaster

I forget, what type of alternator did you use?
It is a two wire delco remy alt commonly found on many old chevys and easily found in stock for less than 40 bucks at your local part store

You have the charge wire going to the battery of course then on the two wire plug one goes to constant battery voltage to tell the regulator when to kick on or off the second wire goes to switched power to excite the regulator when the key is on this wire will commonly back feed power to the ignition switch unless you install a diode to stop the reverse flow of power

Some clown did that to my trans am before I picked it up....although they didn't do it right and it ended up being a pita to fix. I see the use in a dedicated race car, but not a worn out 305 tbi motor. The same clown bypassed the heater core with a section of copper pipe.

Ooo, that sounds like the alt. is backfeeding some way. Hopefully if something was going to fry, it would've happened already, meaning it's not going to be trouble.

Looked through the pics when you posted the link, but only saw the one wide shot of the job. Probably my bad though. The pics are bigger here.
