which flywheel is it Kev? P8, 2 wire or 3 wire...... or the pukka Corse items with lower output alternator???
Its the Pukka Corse kit, the alternator is only about 1/3 the size of the one on the 916 strada, both use the two wire single phase setup.
The Strada flywheel fits but is a bit on the heavy side, the Corse job is steel and has NO facility for the starting gear/sprag clutch parts, but probably weighs about the same as a alloy flywheel with starting gear fitted.
This weight probably helps to keep the engine turning over with the stored momentum. I suspect if it was to light the tuned 955 motor would be prone to stalling at low revs.
So I see the ideal solution for the Corse engine is to fit a Alloy flywheel with the starter gear in place but keep the race spec alternator as the bike is to be used for racing in next seasons Sound of Thunder championship mainly with North Glos club but probably the odd outing with New Era.
