Alternator Belts

Sun, 2006-01-01 00:00 -- AntonLargiader

This is a brief history of the alternator belts used on Oilhead boxers and the differences in how they are maintained. These models (R1100RS through the present) are the only ones with such belts; K and F series bikes have direct-drive alternators without belts. For reference, the Oilheads (R1100, R1150, R1200C) came with 40A or 50A alternators, and the Hexheads (R1200GS and later) come with 40A or 55A alternators.
