With all the threads about poor battery life, LED's for lower amp draw, what is the amp rating on the S&S alternator?

I know Harley went with 32 amp alternators for some time and then eventually came out with a 50 amp version on their touring bikes.

Thanks in advance!

Have a great week all and stay safe and healthy!!!

Thanks Richard... smile

Just wondering how well 38 amps handles all the normal lighting on the M3W. Apparently very well.

Thanks again for the quick reply.

Have a great day!

It's mainly LED lighting Dan and an under-sized battery so nothing to stress it.

the headlights probably only pull 3 amps apiece so there is a lot to spare
