I can't see it being a problem to be honest.......they only take charge when the ignition is on.

Dunno if it would work properly as the charge from a dynamo varies according to the revs Suspect where as an alternator is a more constant charge rate..

Convert it over.
You can get alternators in a dynamo sized body now.

however it charges the normal battery the same as an alternator would!

the only thing is that you may have to rigup a relay and switch method of split charging rather than running it by a voltage sensing diode!

you don't need a voltage sencing diode .....you would be better off getting a nib jockling anode supresser in a negative pulse only ....as these are far more reliable




I thankyou

Have you stuck with stock width Dude??
Is there any space in there to narrow without any body mods??

i keep it stock width.if you wanted to narrow it i think you would need to mount the shocks on the inner wings,make up new front body mounts and alter the framehead.
