Sonreir, would you happen to know what size of a flywheel puller will remove that rotor from the end of the crankshaft?

I think it's either M12 or M14. It's the same as the rear axle.

Thanks, I figured it out.. M16x1.5mm

Thanks again for all your help on this bud!!

You're making a lot of sense, thanks for this info.


Thanks for all your help with this. I feel like my rotor may be toast bc the Hot Shot charging system is stated to handle the 55w bulb with no issues. Therefore, either my fuse coming from my reg/rec is blown, my rotor is done or the charging system is malfunctioning. I will check the fuse next time I'm in the garage, if that's intact I am going to assume the rotor is shot bc the charging system is brand new.

Sonreir, would you happen to know what size of a flywheel puller will remove that rotor from the end of the crankshaft?

Thanks again for all your responses.

Found your thread here, more active than HT. If your bike charged fine with your headlight off then your reg/rec fuse is fine.

I'd test with that 35w head light and then move on to testing another rotor.

Hey Buddy, just read your other post as well on HT. Anyway, I honestly don't think it's the bulb. The manufacturer states that the Rick's Electric Hot Shot charging system is fully capable of running a 55w light. It outputs much more power than the stock stator & reg/rec. So it narrows it down to just a few factors. Heading to the garage in a few days to do some tests and will report back. Thanks for your replies.

It's fully capable of running a 55w bulb if the only change is the 55w bulb and the hot shot stator and everything else is stock and in good condition, if anything else is changed on the system, then it needs to be tested. You can probably get everything sorted and be able to run the 55w bulb, but it might be harder and more costly than just switching to a 35w bulb. I would try to minimize the load on the charging system, move to LED turn signal, brake light and tail lights if you haven't already, drop to 35w HL if need be, find out if anything else is drawing a lot of current. Whats your ignition system, do you know how much current it needs?

A lithium battery needs to have 13.2v or higher to charge, if you can get your system above that point as close to idle rpm as possible then you are golden

rick's also makes a hotshot rotor which is absolutely epic for power output.

You got a link? I thought they only did the stator.
