FXR Upgrade

So I picked up this 96 inch ultima for a great price... and was on the fence about whether or not to flip it, use it in a project, or put it in my FXR.
Well after being bed ridden sick for two  days, yesterday I decided to say fuck it and throw it in my FXR.
Of course there had to be a fiasco. The magnets in my rotor decided they didn't wanna be there anymore and late model charging systems is not something I keep on the shelf. I had repaired the stator wiring about 25,000 miles ago, and the old wires were looking pretty sketchy as well. So after some touch up on the wires and regluing the magnets, I was able to get some charging out of that old system.
I'll need to put a new charging system in eventually, but that got me down the road.
Man what a difference that 96 inch motor is.. I'm already thinking 107.
