hi and welcome to the forum i asumme you cant get it into the houseing you will need to match up the spilnes on the rubber dampers near enough then wiggle it into place while twisting it lightly dont pull the alt in with the bolts as you will cause damage

I had enough trouble with the stock one. Those dampers wouldn't line up. Others had the alternator in the first go round. :baffled:

The instructions sayremove the passenger foot plate (two bolts) doesn't add much but makes iteasier to see.Insert the alt. back end first with the tab on the rear of alt. at 6 o'clockafter its in twist alt. sotab is at 5 o'clock. The alt. will be hitting tubing I think steel brake line. You will have to put some (force) pressure against that line and then turn it into place. This is from the instructions from my install.

I just put one in my bike. It is hard but it is possible. You need to rotate the rotor as you move it into position.Just when you think it is impossible it will fall into place. Dont give up.

Thanks for the insite. I finally got it in tonight.

The alternator makes a lot of noise when running. Is this normal?

Hell, I had trouble getting the Stock alternator to fit back in. And then Exivid laughed at me for it. Grin.

After wiggling and twisting for it seemed like hours the damn thing just fell in.

It was like magic. and I was tempted to pull it back out and try it again.

BUT I'm not that stupid.

Glad it worked out for you.

Yes when I got it just right it fell in. Every thing lined up and I was able to push it in to the oring with little Eford. The noise is pretty noticeable. No noise at idle. No vibration.
