So I removed my right crankcase a few weeks and and 2-toned it black and red and finally got around to doing the other side (alternator cover)..reinstalled it and took it for a quick spin around my neighborhood and could feel/ hear the alternator itself rattling a bit. NOTE: I am a dumbass and I misplaced the little bracket that sits inside next to the alt. holding the wire down......Could that be my issue or did I trash my alternator taking it in and out? Please anyone with similar experiences or known, chime in and help a brother out!

Have you opened it back up to take a look yet?
no, I havent yet...I just went for another ride and it only rattles when i'm not on the gas....and it become a lot less "rattley" than the first quick spin....could it be a lack of oil in there at first??

Are you certain you put the stator coils back in the right way? If you flipped it over, the connecting wires can get flayed by the flywheel. If that happened, you'll know soon enough (your battery won't be charging)

hmm well not that you say that..I DID have to push start it the first time and but i've also been doing led's in my gauge cluster so that could be the culprit for the dead battery? The way I put it back in looks like the way it should be though, according to how the wire sat inside so nicely.

Also...not that it's (most likely not related) she was spewing out a decent amount of white smoke even at the end of my 3 minute journey....praying it's not a head gasket bc it didn't really smell like it.

The only reason I bring up that is because I had someone else reinstall my stator, and they flipped it so that the wires routed towards the engine instead of the cover. The flywheel tore apart the leads and so I wasn't charging my battery, luckily there didn't seem to be much fallout beyond some small pieces of copper wiring in the flywheel. If one is unlucky, these pieces could get into the engine oil and run around inside your engine... not saying that's what happened but it's something to think about.

I know it's a pain to do, but pulling the cover to visually inspect may at least narrow things down. Also, you used new liquid gasket when you reinstalled the cover right? If you used too much, some may have gotten into the oil when you torqued the cover down. Gasket should be used sparingly so the flash from the compression doesn't squeeze it out into the inside.

idk man i'm like 99.99% sure I placed it in the correct way but looks like I don't have any other options to take it off tomrw and further inspect it. Other than that, and a slipping clutch that needs to be replaced it rode fine...although I didn't get on her like normal due to the ridiculous amount of salt/gravel on the roads for snow. And yes I did use liquid gasket..maybe a bit much.. I used a toothpick to smooth it down enough to make a complete seal.
