I have the Trail Tech regulator, and was able to modify my GY6 stator as described above. However, I am wondering how you were able to free everything from frame ground? Like the starter? It is grounded.
Sorry man, I don't like to leave a post unanswered, I just missed yours somehow. I grounded every wire to the negative pole of the battery. I ran a #10 wire from the PAIR blocking plate to the battery to handle the juice of the starter and ignition. Since the starter grounds to the engine case I figured that would take care of it. Sprocket is correct though, the guys at Trail Tech said I could leave those circuits grounded to the frame since the case of the R/R acts as a conduit for the electricity. But, as usual, I was paranoid and ran everything off of the battery. Another weird thing the guys at Trail Tech told me was I didn't need to worry about fuses. They didn't say anything other than that; brevity is their forte'.
ok has anybody put a scope on one of these stators and see if it is give a full wave ac signal or if it is half wave
I did not put an oscilloscope on the stator but I did use the multi to check the hertz. They rise dramatically with RPMs which makes sense. As the magnets in the flywheel pass by the coils quicker the frequency would rise also.
Half and full wave would not be a consideration when scoping the stator, but it would with rectification. Half wave refers to using just one half of the AC cycle while full wave harvests the entire cycle.
Half wave rectification:
Full wave rectification:
AC current is full wave and cannot be anything else. By the way, I took my naked scooter out yesterday that has the Trail Tech R/R on it. The voltage is 12.5 at idle and 14 at speed. It's also a friggin' blast to ride. Rich
as for the 03 black out some overload protection was bypassed or not working some where when the first plant went out it taxed the rest of the grid and created a domino effect , as the other plants were overloaded when the first plant went down . Yes Rich I have a giga watt motor that I used to try to reverse the rotation of the earth but the flux capactor was undersized and the giga plates fused to the primary in the flux induction system as the earth slowed the polarty started to reverse and overloaded blowing out the primary plant , then the other plants tried to hold the load and they ended up overloaded as well . In the end MOTHER NATURE says the earth spiins this way and John you may not change it .
Rich the frequency of the waveform would be every changing with changes of RPM wider at lower RPM and narrower at higher RPM . The 6 and 8 coil stators would have different amplitude from each other ad the same RPM . The eleven coil stator all 3 phases would have the same width and amplitude , it would increase with more RPM so would the frequency . to scope a 6 or 8 pole you can do it with a single channel scope , the 11pole you would need to use 3 of a 4 channel scope . GRAB YOUR HEAD RICH STOP IT FROM SPINNING !!!!!! Gee Rich you sparked my brain moving , VFD cooling fan "Variable frequency Drive" it would use less total power , it could run longer at a reduced speed .
