Watch, it'll be the pickup coil which is still original.

I actually did change the pickup lol. But as for the stator, continuity between all yellow wires. But the red/black wire is putting out 60 volts when cranking. But it is also grounding to the frame. Is that normal? I can't remember. But as for how I got home. Some nylon rope and a gmc yukon. Kinda scary.

of course one end of magneto (stator) windings will be grounded, otherwise the flywheel magnets would not induce current flow as they spin by..
Black/Red circuit should be over 100 volts while cranking per Honda specs while using peak voltage adapter attached to your digital volt meter set to DC. without specific test equipment as illustrated in Honda oem shop manual, your voltage readings are unreliable.

I have another question though, on a stator if the charging portion of the stator is bad but the exciter is good, will it still produce spark?

There is a way to make the peak voltage adapter though for relatively cheap. I found a thread on this forum I believe. Just gotta find it

At this moment though, I am attempting to rewind my stator. I have the magnet wire and I figured that if I take 2 strands of wire off the stator I could leave the third and just have to do the 2. If it works, awesome, if not oh well. Reason I don't just do all three is the quantity of wire I have with me

The charging side of alternator is totally separate electrically from CDI charge windings..
The answer is yes if charge coils are burned out you should still have ability to create spark..

yes there are DIY peak voltage adapter aka DVA construction instructions on the web..
Actually very simple to construct

So im kinda stumped then. I cant afford any money to put towards the bike anymore, and even putting it up for sale and saying "make an offer" no one is biting. Cdi is good, voltage regulator is good, pickup is good, kill switch good, ignition coil good, only thing I see that could have a problem is the stator but if it should spark then I don't know this time.

It sucks because I was riding it and it was fine and all of a sudden it wouldn't rev anymore and I went to check and there was no spark. :mad: grrrr
How irritating

I'm a little late to the party but did you ever get this motorcycle to run? Are you still wanting to sell it? Have a great day

i ran out of time and funds to put towards the bike. and it was taking up space that we just didnt have to spare so I am very saddened to say i let it go

It's good to know that you're still out there Justsomeguy.
Long time! Good to hear from you again. I hope that all is well.

No matter what you ended up spending, I'd say it was $ well spent for education
Thinking out of the box accomplishing adaptations no one else has, irregardless of long term stability is a feat in itself.
You will be that much farther ahead on your next transportation project..
