    You near that guy that killed his headlights?
    He needs someone local to troubleshoot for him.

    I think a trip to Carlisle would be an excellent birthday present.

      Went to Sam's Club, and got a Delco battery. Fired right up.
      I think even after I get the new restored look battery I'll just throw this one on the trailer and carry it as a backup.

              Green eye?
              Remember those?
              Must have been one of the first sealed batteries. I didn't like the idea, but my Nova had one it and it lasted and lasted.

                Broke the master link on the way back from the co-op. Very surprised! Fortunately not too far away and could walk the bike and coast. Another thing to fix.

                  yep and a buddy of mine who's an facility maintenance tested the harness all out for safety and what not once we got it in. The only thing now is hope the switches all work out.

                    We have a local person who for years (40) has done nothing but rebuilt alternators. The cost to do mine is $40.
                    I don't know the history of mine, and wonder if I should just get it done??
                    I know several people who have used this person and all were very happy with the service.

                        Only issue would be appearance. Rebuild is likely just functional - not a 'restoration' type service like Hoppy does on distributors

                              Can only put out what it was designed to do. I would see it more as insurance against untimely failure ( is there ever a good time?)
                              Matt has posted a bunch of stuff on alternators. Could probably give a bit more insight @Mattax
