hey i was thinking of doing that same thing u guys just did to put a car alternator on an 87" gl1200 interstate or should i just get a heavy duty stock style

and can anyone recomend a brand name/model?
It's pretty much a matter of choice. You can get a new heavier duty stator for a bit less than $200 which is a good way to go if you want to stay stock. If you don't mind a bit of fiddling and modifying the bike, the auto alternator route has been working for many folks. If you have a lot of accessory lights and electrical loads on the bike the auto alternator might be the better bet. If your bike is pretty stock a new stator will probably last at least another twenty years or more.

Might be worth taking a close look at the auto conversion then, the stock bike doesn't have all that much extra electrical capactity
