I have developed a alternator knock which they tell me could be in the alternator or motor drive gear. How can i seperate them?:(Can I remove the Alt. and start the bike to eliminate the components?:praying:
Thanks Peter

There is also alternator bushings(plastic i believe) that go between the alternator and the engine, it keeps it from vibrating and you could be hearing that also...Might be worth checking into before u get too far...

I'd pull the alt and get it gone through then reinstall it with fresh rubber bushings. If the noise is gone, it was the alt, otherwise something else.
Cheap enough to get done.

I know, I was going to rebuild the alt. anyways but what I want to know, can the bike be run with the alt. removed? This would greatly tell me where the noise is.:?

I would not run the engine without the alternator in place. It will have a large opening and you will have one heck of a mess to clean up
