[COLOR="Red"]DO THIS MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK, IT WORKED GREAT FOR ME AND THE BIKE HAS TWO RIDES ON IT ALREADY. Make sure you dont just hook up your lights when you finish the mod, i blew up both my lights when i turned on the bike, you have to buy an ac regulator/rectifier so that it regulates the volts going to the lights. The wiring for the regulator will be my next post.[/COLOR]
the pink wire is ground, and the yellow wire from the wr426 stator is the power!!!
1. Find the pink wire on the stator. (there is a pink wire and a red one)
i found it on the stator and also the 6 pin connector.
2. choose a place in-between the stator and the 6 pin connector, and cut the pink wire. (make sure there is enough pink wire still attached to the 6 pin connector so you can ground that wire)
3. you want to tape off the pink wire that goes back to the stator. ( you will not connect this to anything, just tape it off and insulate it.)
4. Ground the pink wire still attached to the 6 pin connector.
5. Celebrate and drink a beer!!!!
ok ill show the steps with pictures so no one is confused.
1. [COLOR="Red"]make sure its the pink wire, the red wire is a darker shade of pink[/COLOR]
I made a slit in the protective covering halfway between the stator and the 6-pin connector, just make sure not to cut any wires if you do this. now just find the [COLOR="Red"]PINK WIRE, NOT THE RED WIRE[/COLOR] and pull it out a bit with some needle nose then snip it in half.
Now just cut the covering down a bit, so you can tape the pink wire away from the other wires and tape up the pink wire that feeds back to the stator. [COLOR="Red"]make sure you tape up the pink wire going back to the stator and not the one going back to the 6 pin connector.[/COLOR]
now just find a place to connect the pink wire (going to the 6-pin connector) to a ground on the frame. i used the right here. [COLOR="Red"] i had to extend the pink wire so that it would ground to the frame, so the black wire in the picture is basically the pink wire.[/COLOR]

i used the stock nut and washer, used to secure the wr stator on my yz and then everything was plug and play after the stator mod.
1. wr426 stator
2. wr426 flywheel
3. ac regulator
4. i used 16 gauge wire.
5. misc. wire connectors and electrical tape

For help with an all DC system like mine, using a regulator / rectifier check here:

I currently run a wr stator and flywheel on a yz with a pure ac circuit powering a 100watt halogen. I love the reliability of it.

can you run any type of head light on ac? can a led tail light run off ac?

LED's will run on AC, sort of.
AC reverses polarity cyclically, which is why it's called alternating current. Light Emitting Diodes are like all other diodes in the sense that they will conduct electricity only on one polarity. When the positive and negative are correctly oriented, the diode is forward biased, current flows, and it lights. Reverse the polarity, the diode is reverse biased, current is blocked, no light.
An LED connected to AC will glow only the half of the time that the current is forward biased, but if the LED glows visibly very quickly when forward biased, and the cyclic rate of the current is fairly fast, say 50Hz or over, the "flicker" isn't visible. The frequency of current generated by a rotor with 6 magnets over a single coil is about 100 at 1000 RPM, so the light should appear steady. "Switching" diodes constantly at such a high rate may or may not shorten their expected life, depending on the construction of the specific diode.

is that the same for say an h4 headlight bulb? will it shorten the life of it or does that only apply to led's? or is it better off to run it dc with a battery?

i talked to a friend at work and he says ac will run any light fine with out shortening the life that only applys to led's on ac. i guess you can convert it to dc with a rectifyer but then you would also have to run a battery.

I'm in the process of wiring my bike for this exact set up blbiker56 is running. I feel like a cave man when it comes to wiring and I'm confused how to
wire the regulator/rectifier into the system. I do not want to run a battery and the only detailed information I can find on this setup includes converting
to DC and installing a small battery in the airbox. I have literally everything needed for the conversion, but do I still need a
rectifier instead of the simple AC regulator I have? Thanks for any help
