On The Road Again!
« on: July 07, 2013, 09:04:19 PM »
I finally got the Black Hawk all back together today!  Took a little longer than I anticipated, but I was also doing it in my friend's garage and was having trouble finding the tools I needed.  Upon the trial fire up, I noticed the clutch was slipping and was barely even turning the motor.  Loosed up the lever assembly and all was fine with the clutch.  Got the bike started and then heard a weird squealing noise coming from the primary.  Looked at it closely and saw the rotor was not centered with the new alternator.  A few good whacks with a dead blow and it shut up, so everything is good in that department.  I think my Sparx may have been damaged when the old alternator caught on fire, or as Joe Lucas would say,  when "it left in smoke".  With the lights minus the headlight, it's putting out about 13.25V, but with the headlight on it's running at about 12.5V.  I might just have to roll around close to home with the headlight on and just check it every 20 minutes or so and see what's going on.

Thanks Again To ERC!!!!!    :D

Your making my head big glad you got it going. Forgot to tell you you want a minium of .008" clearance all the way around on the rotor. It may be your regulator is bad. What stator did you put on there the 120 watt one?  ERC

I went with the 10 amp Wassel #47205.  I'm not sure how many watts it's rated at.

10 amps times 12 volts equals 120 watts.

That's how they figure that out?!  All these years playing wiDth electrical and I never knew that.  You learn something everyday.....  And about once a week on this forum.   ;D   Thanks for the bit of insight Arizoni.

Good way to figure out how big of a generator you really need, too.

GLAD TO HEAR YOU ARE BACK IN THE SADDLE SCOTTIE :)
Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress in this period in history.
