While I was taking my alternator out to replace the brushes today I broke wat appears to be a resistor mounted to the outside of the alternator and also has a lead to the terminal side of the alternator. :(

I looked up some online microfiche for the part and cannot see it. Does anyone know what it is and whatpurpose it serves? :stumped:



Thanks, Mark

It's a capacitor, should be available at any alternator shop or parts store. Same thing as the condenser on a points ignition.

It's a noise suppressor for the CB radio. There is another one on top of the fuel pump, under the saddle.

A capacitor for noise suppression mainly for the CB. Has nothing to do with the operation of the alternator, and you may not notice any audible difference. Take your time in finding a replacement.

Thanks for the replies. Do you know if the capacitor is available through Honda?


Thanks, Mark

It came stock with the SE series that had the CB radio installed at the factory. Should be on the microfisch in the 'alternator' area.
