Default Poweraythor alternator conversion

I recently purchased a poweraythor 65A alternator conversion and installed on my mostly stock 1974 Sportster. I cannot say enough good about this conversion. It is shorter than the generator and black in color which lets it fit the original generator mounting location without taking away the original Sportster appearance. The alternator has a built-in regulator so no more generator-regulator problems. It starts producing current at about 600 engine RPM and at 1000 RPM and up it holds a steady 14.2 volts output. This conversion is proven and built to last for many years. The person that produces the conversion is Ray Duguay and can be contacted at saddlebagrail@yahoo.ca. It's a great product and improvement for a vintage Ironhead Sportster.

Bill

I am planning a project using my 1976 basket case and have been thinking about the electrical system. These bikes are negative ground in the stock configuration. Could I and more importantly should I wire the bike for negative ground? Does this alternator your talking about work with negative and positive ground?

Hi Rodney

My unit is a «negative ground» as your stock configuration,and you should stay that way,Ray
