Well, 2years ago i blew a stator, just to old i guess. Then i replaced it with another stator. It lasted me 18months. Not pleased. I told myself i'm not going through that again. So i did some research and found you can switch out you stator and install an alternator. UMMM. Can i do it. So with no money comeing in, i decided to give it a try. To make a long story short, after six months, try it tear it down fix it, try it again, tear it down fix it. Then bang i got it. Took it out for two short test rides seem to be working great. Then put it away for the winter. Now it's March 2013. I've put about 200 klm's on so far and every thing seems to be holding together. Tucked up inside the fairing you cant even tell it's there unless you now what your looking for. For all of you's who gave me idea's, my hat goes off to you's. Im very greatfull. Thank you's all.

I understand completely the feeling of having a great charging system, something about having an auto alternator on my 1100 that makes me feel comfortable, just knowing I have 55 amps of juice is a great feeling, and that I can fix any issue with it if it ever does happen on the exterior...My hat goes off to all the pioneers [Don] before us... There are a bunch of 1200 guys using this conversion but only a hand full of 1100 guys and even less 1000 guys, but it is possible..

I'm just in the middle of putting a conversion kit on my 86 aspy, its proving to be a very interesting exercise I think I've learnt how to swear in 3 different languages lol. you definitely have to have an open mind sometimes, but its almost there and am looking forward to seeing how she goes.
