Hey Peeps Up workin on the scoot...

I decided that i havent been very productive so im gonna put a few hours in on the bike... the engine is out and side covers are off im also gonna be pulling the rectifier testing and possibly relocating so if anyone needs pics of any erticular part or spot on my bike please hit me up real quick and i'll snap a pic for ya I'll be on yahoo IM [email protected]

One question; where the 3 stator wires are connected they go up into the harness and over to the rectifier? should i ground the rectifier to the frame (in addition to the yellow black wire)?

Lance you set the pickup coil gaps how did u do that?

Grounding the R/R will serve no purpose, nothing inside the R/R contacts the heatsink.


Pickup Coil Adjustment

Remove the 3 phillips head screws on the left side. This will allow you to remove the pick up coil cover. You will need to place something under the bike to catch the oil although oil loss will be minimal. Once the screws are removed, the cover should either come right off or you may need to pull on it. The three screws and the cover all have separate o-rings. Once the cover is off, you will see the two pick up coils mounted to the stator cover inside two holes. They are mounted at roughly the 9:00 and 11:00 o'clock positions. Behind the stator cover, there is a rotor.

You may need to rotate the rotor using a socket wrench on the shaft bolt in the center to align the small "plate" on the rotor with one of the pick up coils so that you can measure the clearance. Once you have measured one, rotate the rotor again so that you can measure the other. To adjust the clearance, remove the two screws which secure the pick up coils to the stator cover. You will most likely need to slightly elongate or slot the holes in the "ears" of the pick up coil mounting brackets. A chain saw file works well for this but you can use a rotary tool with a small grinding wheel on it.

You will also see that there are 3 small protrusions coming out of the stator cover that each of the mounting "ears" of the pick up coils fit into for proper placement from the factory. You will have to knock the one closest to the center off to be able to make the necessary adjustment. A sharp chisel works well for this although you may want to cover the holes in the stator cover with something to prevent the little piece from falling inside the engine. Once the protrusions are knocked off and the holes are elongated, it is time to put the pick up coils back on. Set them back in their holes and start the screws.

Place your .020" feeler gauge between the coil and the rotor "plate" and tighten the screws. Once you are satisfied with the clearance, tighten down the screws and do the same with the other coil. Use locktite on the screws.

Also, make sure you put the pickup coils back in the same place each one came from.
If you put A where B was and B where A was, you'll have problems getting the bike to start.

Hey Seebeeare --

Can you take some photos of the process to reset the pickup coil gaps?

Thanx!
