Default Re: Anybody tried a chain driven generator?

I'd love to find a charging system for these little engines. For just running lights may only need 20 amps. Most on autos are for 60-100+ amps.and are heavy. Most small engines I've found have stators and rotors built in internally like motorscooters and motorcycles. I've looked for a small external alt. to chain drive to no avail. An automotive alternator also must spin a 2-3k rpm for peak output.
Any ideas?
