cdi source voltage -a/c or d/c ?
Posted July 11, 2004 - 11:28 PM
I recall somebody posting that the cdi feed source and ALL other electrical except for the battery and starter are ac voltage?
Is this true?
I was under the impression that Most bikes receive dc feed to the ignition components , regardless whether the magneto is ac or dc as a regulator rectifier with a diode are utilized to convert and clean the voltage feed to the cdi and ign coil.
Being able to remove the regulator rectifier would finish and simplify my endeavor, but I thought I need it.
_ I'm afraid I might fry the cdi if the regulator rectifier is not used. :thumbsup:usa::

Wow I can't believe how much the starter, gears, battery, switch, etc etc weighed. Put it all in a plastic bag- 11 pounds, and about 12 oz of it was the stupid starter clutch which I removed as well.
Now its the bike yamaha should have built. Has a big coil for lights or hand warmers if desired,wide ratio tranny,decent sized tank, starts 1st kick every time and no fluff.
Quite a noticable difference in the way it pulls too.
Think I'll be putting a smaller rear sprocket on it as it will pull it better.
Some might say its bastardised, but they ride heavy bastards!! with rotor problems !!
