Since I cooked a brand new stator last summer, (Got a whole whopping 137 miles on it before it keeled over) I'm going that route also. I plan on going with the internal voltage regulator unit also. My question is- what to do with the current voltage regulator already on the bike. Do you leave it in or remove it? In my searches on doing the poorboy, no one has said what to do with it.
And has anyone used a Weasler Engineering pulley? Those are available at Tractor Supply. What's slick about those, is that you pick your sizes, and weld them together.
