Luke, can you explain this further to me?

Ive got mine apart, cleaned up, and contemplating starting to wind the missing posts on the core it self.

It appears I can get 3 windings, of 5 posts each, not sure about the 120 degrees apart deal though, am I missing something else?

Thanks!

Hey, that's pretty neat. I sure didn't expect to see anything like that.

120* is describing the electrical signal, not the physical construction of the poles, exactly. If the flywheel had only one N and S magnet, then it would. If you have more than one N and S magnet, then divide 120* by the number of magnets to get the number of physical degrees separation of the stator winding poles.

So in this case, the poles are 20* apart, if the core is meant for three phases, there should be 6 N and 6 S poles on the flywheel magnets, so a piece of steel should stick to 12 places.

I'm a bit shaky on all that, so please try it and see if that's right before counting on it.

By all means, go ahead and try winding it. Get the same number of turns on each winding. It matters which way all the windings get connected together. There should be some sort of guide online to getting it right based on the direction of the windings. I remember seeing one but don't remember where it was.

right, thanks.

I plan to leave the stock in place, and wind the 2 others as closely as I can in guage and length.
then wire it in the delta config, likely externally, so I have options if one phase goes south on me.

OK, so reading from the first page, I should be able to figure out the voltage output of my stock stator (at idle) by unplugging it and while running the engine at idle checking the voltage (i'm assuming DC) difference across the terminals with my meter? I'd like to know what the stock output is since I haven't been able to find any info on it and the previous owner threw some extra lights on it but I'm not sure the stock stator puts out enough to keep the battery charged with them on. __________________ "Try turning that burn into torque.

No, the stator voltage is designed for the load it is driving. For any 12V system, the unloaded stator voltage should be somewhere around 15-25VAC at idle. So unless the stator has been rewound or damaged you would expect to see about the same voltage regardless of the rated power output of the stator. Stator voltage is what you would check to figure out if the stator has the right number of coils on it.

You can calculate stator output with all the formulas I posted by measuring the voltage with different known loads attached, but if you just want to see if the stator is good enough for your application, it's overly complicated.

In your case, I'd just measure the battery directly. Set the voltmeter to VDC, and clip its leads directly to the battery terminals. Without starting the bike, turn the headlight on for 15 seconds or so. Turn it off, and note the battery voltage. Start the bike. If the battery voltage is a few tenths of a volt above the noted voltage, you know it is charging. If at or below, it is discharging.

I definitely need to watch this as I have a dirt DR350 that I want to dual sport. I just got an S stator and regulator and was going to go this route, but I might try the rewind route instead. Take GOOD pictures

I wrapped it last night, need to drip some resin on it, and poke the wires thru the grommet and test it out!

How do you wind a 3 phase stator in Delta configuration?

Oddometer: 4,803 I always thought you were better off to go with smaller diameter wire when making your stator windings. The other side that I didn't see mentioned in this thread is the strength of the magnets. If you could build a flywheel up that uses rare earth magnets or whatever the strongest magnets you can get in combination with a rewound stator then your should have optimal output.....at a loss of engine power of course. __________________ Seth S My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of good judgement.
