Sooo,

70% on my way to Newport this morning on work i noticed my indicators were working a bit slower than they should.... i didnt think muc of it till i got back in the car in the afternoon to drive up, and it seems that something is wrong with my charging system. the battery seems new, as its from GSF and the labelling looks fairly recent. which turns my attention to the alternator, which alos looks quite clean and noticably newer than the rest of the engine. when i had my indicator on and it was ticking veeeery slowly i revved the engine and it sped up. it was okay after a bit but when i put my lights on etc it happened again.... not as bad, but it happened. it didnt have any trouble turning over though.... never has...

can anybody shed any light on this?
