What do Alton generators do?
Alton 12 volt A.C. generators replace the 3 inch dynamos fitted on British classic and vintage motorbikes. While running at moderate cruising speeds they supply an output of 85 to 90 watts ( maximum output of 150 watts ) they supply sufficient energy to have lighting that conforms to modern expectations, coil ignition if you want it and a well-charged battery.
Using permanent magnet brushless technology, Alton has created a maintenance-free, easy-to-fit solution to the problems associated with dynamos. Plus it’s simple to install an Alton generator, full instructions and wiring diagrams are supplied. The rectifier regulators are for negative earth systems and again instructions are supplied showing how to do it. All Alton generators come with a two year guarantee.
Will it look out of place?
No because Alton have designed their generators to be as authentic looking as possible - down to the logo, they have tried to match the form without sacrificing the function. Alton generators have the same dimensions as the original dynamos with a close to genuine appearance. Each model is supplied with a mounting kit ensuring it fits into the same space as the original part.
The main difference is weight, with the Alton generator at 1.3 kilos (around 3 lbs) against the typical dynamo weighing in at a hefty 3 kilos (well over 6 lbs).
