Hello Board, Our 03, 56K has an irregular clink noise coming from the
aft end of the alternator. I have read all the post that I could find on
alternator + noise.
I wish to find Honda part# for the alternator drive unit. This part# escapes
my searches.
I found brushes and rotating kit. The accesory drive should have the
alternator drive and water pump drive. Where oh where is the drive unit?
Merry Christmas, happy new year. galewing

May not be the drive, could be the bearings. The rear bearing failed on my '03. Alternator was ruined and was replaced complete under warranty.

The alternator drive is located under the rear engine cover. Had mine replaced at about 70K. Made a vibration at idol that you could feel throughout the bike. If I remember correctly drive unit sold for about $500, I do remember writing a check for $1,800+ to pick it up.
