Yes, sorry Mike, that's what I meant. So I connect a piggy back terminal to the positive on the battery to go to the cigar socket and the other connection from the cigar socket to earth? Yes?

Yeah, but don't forget to put a fuse on the earth side ;)

Only had time to look through the first 5 pages or so of this conversation, so apologise if it's discussed somewhere else, but have one question.

This requires re-soldering the stator (easy enough) to, what I suppose is, connect the two coils in series to double the outputted voltage (at the expense of the amp dropping).

Practically, how does this differ from the lcgb solution (http://www.ilambretta.com/12v.html) that only requires you to connect the brown output to the rectifier and then hooking that up to the loom and battery? Or does it at all?

The easy version on the lcgb site is a) on a points 6v stator, this thread is talking about electronic ignition

additionally the dc stator conversion gives true direct current 12v

Hello,

I need to Update my Vespa S 50 (2 Stroke) in Full Wave conversion :D
Normally my vespa Use the same Stator 6 Poles (with some differences)

... I have contact BGM for the best way to realise this conversion. So... Now i have the new Full DC Regulator / Rectifier 12V DC Wassell/PODtronic

Like this

i have a little problem

1- For update my stator in Full wave DC i need to add the new yellow wire... OK
But my stator have a Blue and grey wire more (see the picture)

Normally in need only this wires for full wave DC: 2 yellow + Red + White + Black?

Thank you for your HELP :roll:

I don't know if that's a question or a statement?

But if a question, no you don't need to change the loom but you may need to adjust the wiring, best to follow the instructions at the start. All teh informations there.

I've got a few UK rewired Indian stators to work DC with Wassell regulator. £77 for stator and regulator + P&P. PM for details.

It doesn't help that there is only half a wiring diagram in your post :roll: Also, it seems to be for a scoot already with a battery :? I*n order to convert to FULL DC the 4 lighting coils on the stator need to be wired in series with one yellow soldered to either end. Those wires connect to the Wassel unit input and the black Wassel wire goes to earth and the red connectes to the lighting feed connection into the loom. With a purely AC scooter, that is all that is necessary unless a battery is being added but in your case there will be some more changes to the loom necessary but unless you post up a FULL diagram, no one can help you.
