YZ426 electrical help need from WR owners please.
Posted December 26, 2003 - 01:26 AM
Road (UK) legal, base motor.
Has a total loss elctrical system fitted - ie battery powers lights & horn, but has to be charged using a mains powered "optimate charger", or similar when the bike is garaged at night.
Is there a easy fix to take power from the exitsing coil and use this to charge the battery.
can I just use one of the ignition wires comming out and connect to the live on the battery?
I've asked this in the YZ forum and its been suggested that you guys are the ones that would know
How about I buy an unused wr rectifier/regulator and hot wired one of the stator leads on its way to the CDI?
any help would be relly appreciated - or anyone who selling a second hand charging circuit??
Hope every ones xmas was as good as mine!
again, all the best, and thanks very much guys.

There is actually quite a few empty poles on the YZF
Ahhh unless I am mistaken, which I often am, then I'd have to say WRONG!
I just went out to look at the stock stator for my 99 yz400 that is sitting on the shelf. It has wire wound on all the poles. Here is a picture of it.

Some people are making coils that will work with the yz stator backer plate and stock flywheel. But they only put out 45watts and are still expensive, like $220. The wr system is only like $80 more and puts out like 130 watts.
Now the wr system may put ac were you need dc to charge or vice versa. You may need some extra part to convert he voltage. I dont know about all that. Call electrex. They can answer all your questions. Them or Bajadesigns.

I was hoping I could regulate the ac current from one of the yz stator coils and connect this to the battery as a charge rather than charging from the mains battery charger overnight?
would that work?
sorry to be a pain in the a**
