Check your voltage at battery with pocket meter when running to see if it is over above 12v. Should be around 14v. Is alternator/battery light glowing on dash when running? If reading is 12v take alternator off and have it tested before replacing to make sure that's it.

I drop the back cradle bolts and let the frame drop so you have acess to removing it. Remove the belt, take off the 3 bolts, undo the wires after removing battery cable and remove the alternator.
