Ive just bought a Yamaha yz426f it already has the sator kit on it but not sure what previous guy has done but there are a few wires that have been pulled out ill post pics soon just wondering if any one could tell me what they are for. Also how easy is it to fit a battery a 12v one and were could it go?

What stator kit? WR stator? Ricky Stator? Electrolux? Let us know. If it's a WR stator, at least the pink wire shouldbe capped and stowed...

Most dirtbike conversions use a simple AC lighting coil. You probably have 3 wires exiting your stator, and there should be an additional yellow single wire (aux. lighting coil) exiting the stator housing that feeds the 12V AC power to run a headlight. You should also have a voltage regulator bolted somewhere on your frame.

Here is a link to my detailed method as to how I converted my KX500 over to 12V AC power. :


If you want the system to work utilizing a battery, now you have to have a 12V DC type system. This requires a voltage regulator/rectifier, and slightly different wiring.
