Question regarding electrical output voltages
Posted September 28, 2005 - 07:02 AM
i wonder if someone can clarify as to how much current these WR's put out from the stator? I know they're 12volts, but i'm curious to know as to how much and for how long can they sustain running a 12volt fan etc? let me explain..... I have an interesting idea for a mod but need some info first before i go and design a concept. I can't go into specifics as of yet for if it's possible for what i plan to do, it'll be (i should imagine) a very worthwhile marketable product. I'll give you a clue: do you ever worry that your bike is getting too hot while sat idling? Coz i do, as i ride mine as a streetbike and subject to traffic congestion/traffic lights etc i constantly worry about it getting hot as it's not getting any air from forward motion, especially in the hot summer months. As i say i can't go into specifics yet as to what i'd like to design, for fear of the idea being pinched, maybe it's not possible, hence why nobodys done it before?
anyway, my question is... can a WR be capable of running perhaps 2-3 12v fans the likes of which are used in computers? I have lots of these lying around and came up with a brainwave of utilising them, any ideas?

KTM sells these kind of fan kits for their bikes right now and probably could be easily adapted to WRs.

I thought it was too good to be true that no-one had designed anything along those lines before, but it appears KTM had the idea long ago? was thinking about the water issue too, as all computer fans that i know off are of an unsealed type and could easily short circuit the bikes wiring if not fused correctly.
oh well, back to the drawing board, and the next time i get one of those "What a good idea" thoughts into my head, i'll just assume that it's been done already!

Good idea with the fan, but I've seen it before. Anyway, NEVER assume. I designed off road roller blades years ago and did nothing, only to see them on the cover of a magazine a year later. Then there was that magnet inducing current in a coil, free electricity thing. A few weeks ago I read in the newspaper that they are creating electricty using the motion of the waves using that same technique. I'm jumping all over my next good idea, and not telling anyone.
