Wow really love your hack Do you have a build thread somewhere? Looks very similar to something I have been considering.

Thanks,
Jack

Don't think they're available in Australia, good tyre?

Two years ago it seriously dusty. Good to see it all cleaned up.

Good to hear from you Duane. It took two years to get it right but now it's a blast.

Clutch Springs

Put a new clutch in 'Kenny' last time I got into his guts but I'm not happy with the performance factor, noticed a bit slip up the hills the other weekend, + feels light for H/D springs

Got them from MikesXS, New Kevlar fibre plates & steels, also hexhead Allan screws to replace the Phillip heads [std]

Thinking of trying out some H/D Barnett jobs from 650Central, don't want to have slipping clutch next time I've got the trailer behind.
Anyone recommend any thing else?
Cheers

A little progress on the XS this week. Mounted a TrailWing on the rear and found a cheap set of shocks off a Triumph Scrambler that will give me a couple more inches of ride height.



A little final assembly and some wiring and it should be ready for a test ride.

That Trailwing looks almost identical to the Dunlop K460 I use!

120/90x16"

PMA and reg/rects

Hello XS nutcases everywhere .

I have been tinkering with a permanent magnet alternator and now have it installed on the bike .The only part that I am missing is a five wire regulator/rectifier.

HOWEVER , I do have a couple of reg/rects from the later specials , which have seven wires .
Does anyone know if they can be used with a PMA ?
What I had in mind was just insulating the green and brown wires [ which would normally supply 12v to the rotor ] and hooking up the red and black to the battery .The three whites would be connected to the alternator.

I might just give it a go for shits and giggles - "what could possibly go wrong ?".

No pain - no gain, hope there's no smoke either
There's wiring diagram on one of the threads somewhere, I'll see if I can find it

Found it - hope that helps

That will not work. The stock regulators and a PMA regulator operate on totally different principles.

With the stock system, when the alternator produces higher voltage as the rpm goes up, the regulator reduces the voltage going to the rotor and this keeps the output voltage at around 14.3 volts, which is safe.

With the PMA when the alternator voltage starts to exceed 14.3 volts, there is no way to reduce the rotor voltage because it does not have any voltage at the rotor. The PMA just keeps generating its full output as the rpm goes up. Once the voltage goes above 14.3 volts, the PMA regulator starts directing the excess current to a resistor as a dummy load. The resistor gets rid of the extra current in the form of heat. The PMA is a bit like driving your car with one foot fully down on the gas and one foot on the brake to control the speed.

If you do run your bike with the PMA and the stock regulator, the output voltage to the bike and battery could go way up to 20 or more volts, which will likely cook your ignition/lights etc............................oh yeah, smoke is a definite possibility
