Re: Trying to get an understanding on ignition systems for GT186...

About AC/DC. I'm pleased enough with the following set up I have out it on all 3 of my lambrettas. AC for head and tail light. Scootronics regulator which trickle charges a sealed battery. Off the battery I run LED turn signals, a 120 dB horn, and usb port. You can hide the horn under the floor boar...

Re: Clutch sticking when cold?

Yes, if I didn't do long or well enough, is that a symptom?

Clutch sticking when cold?

Hey, I rebuilt the scooter (tv175). Previous owner was heavy and liked to race off the line. The clutch steels were like a prize fighters ears so I replaced along with new corks. The clutch basket showed the rough edges and impact marks so I filed down. When the engine is started from cold, and I pu...

Re: BGB stator output too low.

Again a good old Indian flywheel saves the day !!! SIL flywheels still my first choice ( welded and lightened) Welded? To strengthen the center boss? Is it common for them to come loose? And dumb question, can old points flywheels be used for electronic ignition? I have kicking around here. Sent fr...

Found a phbl sized foam filter for restricted room

It's for a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower. I have no idea if you can get in the UK, I got it for 20$ on Amazon. Fits snug over the 39mm opening and perfectly under the panel. I did not have to adjust my jetting to my great surprise. Part # on package. DD https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190804/e60...

Re: BGB stator output too low.

Hi, lights were on. But I put on an old Indian flywheel and lights were great. So cheers to the person who guessed weak magnets. I'll send SIP a note as that is a product fail.

Tonight I'll shim the pickup to match this flywheel and be done with it.

Tx again

I'm going to pull an AF Rayspeed flywheel off another scooter and try that.

Re: BGB stator output too low.

weak magnets would cause that. Ac or DC? I pulled the flywheel. It's a bgm with the solid magnet all the way around. It would hold a 19mm spanner hung from one end. But if I compare it to the scooters original SX taper flywheel, those magnets are much stronger. I don't have another bgm fly wheel to...

Re: BGB stator output too low.

AC. It's about 5 yrs old if I have to guess, but only a few thousand KMs use as I have several on the road.

BGB stator output too low.

I've got a v1 bgm stator and matching flywheel on a jet200. My headlight is way too dim. I measured out put from stator to regulator and it is 6-7v at 1200 rpm and 10-11v when I'm revving it. Bike starts and rides great. I thought it should be more like 14v. What would cause this? One or more could ...
