Single wire alternator conversion?
« on: August 04, 2017, 10:03:08 pm »
Has anyone converted their Nuovo Falcone to a single wire alternator?  For example, the single wire Bosch 700 watt / 50 amp alternator used on BMW oilheads and K-bikes.  The stock setup seems to have a good reputation for reliability, but a modern, single wire setup would simplify wiring and provide greater output.

Haven't heard of one pg; one of our local owners is looking at fitting a mini-dynamo, having converted to a total loss system with a Li-ion battery, and missing the benefits of lighting. As you say, the stock system works, delivers sufficient power and is generally reliable. If my dynamo died, I'd probably replace it with another one, for simplicity
