I have a 1996 BMW R100RT classic and I think the alternator

Customer Question

I have a 1996 BMW R100RT classic and I think the alternator has failed. Basically on a journey from Cherbourg to Caen in Brittany last night, I saw the charge going to the battery gradually deteriorate to appoint where I can't start the machine. Does anybody have any suggestions about how I should proceed?
I'll look forward to hearing from someone.
Many thanks,
Graeme Matthews.
