It says that it is required to run a 15" or a 27" light bar. Looks like charging system is optional?

You see what I see! I hope this is wrong. Maybe someone that knows for sure will chime in. If this is true then it's bad news for us southern boys. When we get one at the shop I'll load test the charging system to see what it will handle. OR if some of the vendors that already have there hands one would test this for us. That would be nice.

I asked what the watts are at idle and only got the 40amp answer at 3000 rpm :/ Which is about 500 watts. About what the Wolverine has. Easy way to check. Turn everything on and watch the BATT display. Gotta have everything including fan to kick on. If it goes below 12.7volts at idle then you know you'll need the alternator kit.

I'm running a 90watt lightbar and whips with everything on it's at 13.8 volts. Don't have a big stereo/amp going though.

if only someone would corner the market on stators that have a higher output. Correct me if Im wrong, but at 40amps wont that be about 480 watts (A x V=W) so a light bar that is 90w is only drawing 7.5 amps?

From what I can tell. It has same or better charging already than most of the SxS out now. They just give an option for the people that get carried away with lighting and stereo's.

Yeah DD, I have no idea what the actual max output would be. Maybe it's only 500 watts or that could be the minimum.

I have 3 18w spots, 12" 72w light bar, a monster lighted whip with 3000 led lights, and with high beams on at idle voltage bounces 13.8-14.0, fan on at idle it fluctuates down to 13.6, i don't see any concern for me, but i will be adding aux battery for back up later.

Mine drops half a volt with high beams, 20-inch light bar, and two six-element pods.

I will consider an isolated battery under the seat in the next few months, just for the redundancy.

42" led bar, 2 pumpers, intercooler fan, oil cooler fan, led whip and head lights.... 12.3 while running at speed. 90 amp alternator on its way.

More like 1260w if you figure that the voltage should have a base of 14v while running.

I rather have an alternator putting out the amperage I need than a big heavy battery that still going to be discharging when I have the electrical system taxed out.

I have the kit but, only have a few hours on the machine. The belt and pulley looks good still, and all my hours are on the sand. I'm not sure it was necessary but with lights stereo and a winch I didn't want to tax the stock Stator.

Ill definitely report back if there are any issues with durability.
