Umm...the alternator is 6 amp. MAX...less at less than full throttle. Let's say you had 100% output...unlikely...and a 100amp house battery that was 50% discharged. If you ran the engine at full throttle for 8 hours you would nearly be fully charged. The reality is that you do NOT have six amps, that some of what you do have will be lost in conversion, and you will probably have to motor for 12 hours to fully charge a 1/2 discharged battery.
This is a poor idea from the get go. Get a honda1000 to charge the battery or something similar.
