Crazy!!!One question...you say your alternator cooked itself because it was run dry? The rotor and stator are in contact, so I didn't think it'd be a problem. Always thought that the primary chain and clutch plates (on the stock wet clutch, anyhow) were the reasons for the lubrication.Ask as I was planning on running a dry clutch from Newby.
...ignited and actually BLEW my center nut off? Scottie
Well, at least it was only your center nut.You still have your left nut and right nut left!
You can run a dry clutch and dry primary, but you have to provide plenty of cooling vents when you do that. It can't be sealed up. It needs some air going over it.
Don't know why you'd lose control of the bike because the primary blew off, especially if the oil was already gone and there was nothing to blow all over the real wheel, which can make things a bit sporty!
