Is the billet pulley a larger diameter than the original one ? This is normal for these alternators when using oversize pulleys. The alternators turn slower and require a blip of the throttle to reach the self exciting speed. Once it turns on, it stays on. I maintain a couple of road racers that have this setup and a little stab of the throttle turns them on.
