No I am nearly 98% sure this is what Nick sold. The plate actually only gos over the plastic cover piece on the engine, bolts in with the three bolts that holds the plastic cover. I have no clearance issues on either of my units. The other thing is I would be surprised if a company like Alba would not have looked at clearance for the oil check stick when they engineered this. I understand your concern though. Did you pose this question to Nick when you called him?:alcoholic:

I'm running the Ricky Stator one. I got it when they were the only one's with one out at the time. Havent had any problems with it. I"ve had it for a year and half now using the same belt it came with.

Yeah, you definitely want the alternator mounted to the motor and not the frame, or you will be throwing belts all the time.

This is the kit I have, from UTV Specialties. Im not sure if he is still in business. But I really like the kit, and the mount is pretty beefy. So far so good.





Only downside Ive found, is these setups put the alternator pretty close to the exhaust on some setups (like my Pro Circuit duals). But some header wrap just for the 4" of pipe that are near the alt should solve that. If I had to do it again, Id probably do the kit that puts the alt towards the front of the motor, instead of the back. Cant remember where I saw it though...
This looks like the Brown Manufacturing kit we ran last summer. We broke two alternators then broke the billet plate. He said he was designing a new bracket and he would set me up. But now he will not even return my calls. Good luck.

Thats the kit I run and my alternator broke too, after only a hand full of miles. I was going to just replace it, but since I cant get ahold of UTV Specialties anymore, and since I dont want to loose another alternator, or possibly the bracket, Im going to go with the ALBA setup.

I like how it puts the alt up front and away from the exhaust anyways.. Plus I know they will be around if I need any replacement parts..
