Alternator

Recommended Posts

Is there an Alternator I can get at a local parts store for a 2006 Commando 650.

Also does anyone know if other UTV's wheels will fit a Commando.

Are you talking about the 69-80 SI alternators?  My Commando alt died Saturday. If one of those will bolt up direct I'll stop tomorrow and grab one on the way home from work.

where are you at on this planet :)

If you want to send your alternator to me, I can most likely fix it, I have before, I have a chip or two laying around that you can have, just look at the copper winding and if they're not burnt, then it just needs a diode or 2 and maybe a new regulator (chip) 

Your costs are postage, both ways and maybe a few incidental, but probably not.

You need to get the alt check out.Take it to auto zone they can put it on a merchine to .This system has a separate regulator.Buy battery box.

Took the alt to autozone and they claimed they couldn't test it because they can't tell the machine what the alt belonged to and they don't have the proper wiring to hook it up.  I replaced it with a Toyota alt that bolted in but still have issues.   The new alt runs up over 15 volts.   My thinking is the rectifier/regulator is bad.    Sorry for my delayed responses but I work out of town sometimes weeks at a time.  I appreciate the offer and will likely take you up on trying to repair the other for a backup. I also noticed after I replaced it and fired the machine up that the fuel pump continued to run after shutting it off.   Only way I can stop it is to disconnect the battery.  Lots of Gremlins in this Commando.  I don't know if it's a short or possibly related to the rectifier/regulator or what.

      I got to spend a day in the new Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 and wrote a review for Autoweek. I speculate that the future of UTVs will include far more luxury than current models, sort of the way SUVs started out as pickup trucks and evolved into as much luxury as they could pack into them. We're sort of at a crossroad in this evolution. What do you guys think? Are UTVs getting more luxurious? Here's the article:

      I recently purchased a used 2008 Ruesch XR.  The Pinyon is gone in the rear differential and the differential needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Does anyone know where you can find Ruesch parts?

      As an ATV owner (old one BTW), I often come across a search for various owner's manuals, service guides, parts manuals, etc. Therefore I shurely understand how hard it could be to find suitable manuals. Therefore, I present to your attention a website that contains various instructions for ATVs from top brands: https://www.ATVownersmanual.com
      Currently only 3 manufacturers are represented here: Can-Am, Polaris, Yamaha - and only about 1200 instructions for various models. Very soon other brands and manuals will be added.
      Main pros of the website: all files are in PDF and downloadable so you can use offline. Navigation structured by brand, year and model. There is no advertising yet.
      I am happy to hear criticism and recommendations. If you have missing or rare instructions, send them to PM or to the website's email: info [...at...] atvownersmanual [...dot...] com.
