The Compufire is a Delphi CS121 alternator intended for some Saturns. It has a special drive end casing and drive vane in place of the car parts to enable it's mating to the GL1500 Gold Wing or Valk. It uses a Chicago Rawhide # 9878 seal in the drive end and a Honda O ring fits the nose that goes in the bike. Internally, the rebuild kit for a Delphi CS130 alternator will have everything needed for rebuild unless a new rotor is needed, that also is available at mopst rebuilders.

Some info I found.

And if you pull the bearing out it should have the number on the bearing.


It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
