Re: 12 volts from a 6volt dynamo

Until I bought the 'VH' this year I'd forgotten just how underpowered old British bike electrical systems were :roll: .

My 2004 BMW R1150 GS Adventure has a 720 Watt 12V alternator - that's 60 Amps :shock: .

I'm seriously considering an Alton for the VH.

Re: 12 volts from a 6volt dynamo

PS. Will the Panther pull a chair? Well, it could, but I'll be riding it as a solo. My intention is to ride it to the Panther Owners' Club Swedish Rally one day - but it won't be in 2014 I'm afraid as there is far too much work to be done on it at the moment (and I have four other bikes to fettle)....

Re: 12 volts from a 6volt dynamo

My VH is running 12 volts - using a "Classic Motorcycle Electrical Services (CMES) - Bristol" solid state regulator. They don't appear to have a website, but can be contacted on 01454 323434. This article may be useful, as are the other electrical fault-finding texts on the site. http://ma...

Re: Sat Nav Lost

You're a lucky guy Steve ;) .

My Zumo 660 is great, I'd hate to lose it (but I have a very expensive Touratech locking mount, wired to a Starcom Digital comms unit).

Its good to see that some people care enough to track an owner down 8-) .
