That looks like a positive voltage regulator but I'm not seeing a rectifier so it might well be you got a DC dynamo rather than an alternator.

Do you see markings on it like NTE 931 or sth like that?

So what parts do you "need" then Dean? It's not like we all aren't sitting on a bunch of misc parts. I know I am

I can post the suzuki part number in a bit. Other than that I'd have to clean it up further and try to see whats under the paint to see if there are any additional markings.

rear axle spacer (between drum and swingarm) for a kz. Here's the kicker. I don't know the year or size of kz that the arm and wheel are off off. Ill measure the gap and post it.

end seals and/or washers for the swingarm (at the pivot bolt)
kick stand and spring

bushings for the shocks to properly fit the KZ frame and swingarm (posts on the Magna were larger, need to make new metal bushings to go in the rubber bushings and sit to the KZ without slop) - these will need to be custom. I'll get dimensions later today hopefully.

front brake calipers, lines, and master for 82 GS850. The '80 GS1000 that I pulled the calipers off of had the wheel mounted to the front of the fork instead of the bottom. The brackets on the 1k calipers don't line up on the 850 forks.

throttle assembly

handlebars - I know what I want, but at this point I'll take any bars that aren't bent up, can always change it later

tank - I've got my old Fat Bob tanks back from Rat, but they're just as funky as they were before. The one side needs an entire section welded in. Might be easier to just find a new pair

seat - anything really. full KZ seat, cut down KZ seat, random Harley seat. Don't matter. Something to bolt in or reshape.

rear fender - I can prolly find something suitable local. I wasn't looking for rear fenders when I was at the yard, but looking back I'm pretty sure there was a fender or 3 that would have worked, so not really counting this as a need.

chain - not even close to ready for chain yet, but it's a future need. I think rat said the existing chain hanging off the 400 was 520 chain. Not sure what the sprocket on the back wheel is, but the rear sprocket is on my list of maintenance items anyway.

I have almost all of that, including the sealed GS brake system for that front end. Make a trip over again and I'll send you home with almost everything on that list.

No need for suzuki part numbers, I just found the wiring diagram a few pages back. It clearly says dynamo not alternator, and the wiring is a dead giveaway too. How well does the thing regulate can pretty much only be determined for sure with a multimeter and a running engine. The bummer part of those dynamos is they usually put out fairly modest currents, like about 100w worth or so which makes about 8-ish amps at 12v.

I was really hoping that axle that I bought had the right spacers. I'm willing to bet if I slot the disc brake rear together, its all there perfectly.

As for the rest, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you load my car with everything above lol.

I was largely putting together a list so I have a progress checklist. It's cool to see everything coming together. I'm gonna take another trip to the yard, prolly this weekend, and see if I come up with anything else. Still need the horns from a Buick or Caddy, and I need parts for the womans car anyway.

Worst case scenario, I run the lights off a battery. The 18650 cells pack a hell of a punch, and I'm not really intending to do a lot of night riding anyway.

Hmm....wonder if its possible to convert it to a more modern charging system at all.

suzuki number at top 3250027600
another number below it 126900-0011
another box says 6v and another box says 3t

Guess it's only 6v output. Battery packs it is!

So heres the fun part. Do I make a custom pack, or just order some trays to hold 18650 cells?

If you run in to dead ends on axle spacers just holler at me. A few aluminum spacers in the mail is only a few bucks. I'd hate to see your get stalled over something this small.

Much appreciated! Odds are I'll just cut down the spacer I have. As I said earlier, I'm pretty sure the spacer set I have is for the disc brake set, and I'm using the drum brake setup instead.

I'm already at a temporary standstill until end of month. AllBalls is out of stock on one of the steering bearings I need, wont be back in stock until end of month. Pretty much all I can do until then is clean up my parts, work on the front wheel fitment (figure out why it rolls so tight), and wait. Its all good!
