to six-five-o... because the banshee magneto post is nine pages of "will this work or not" and one page of "yep it works" with all the pertinant info contained right here in this thread. i would swap em.
I think you may need an RZ stator bracket to use that adapter. I glued my Banshee bracket to the block because there was no room behind it for an adapter plate. The Banshee stator is thinner than the RZ [or othe three phase] stator so I'm assuming that the bracket is taller to compensate for it. Anyone have an RZ stator bracket that you can measure?
the spin on filter on the sump plate looks interesting too. i wonder if it replaces the sump filter?

I have read this thread through several times, and have won a stator, plate, flywheel, and regulator on E-Bay. We have quite a selection of capacitors here at work, and I'll try to sneak one home. My total cost was $86.35, including shipping.
I also have a Boyer ignition waiting for me at home. My wife keeps asking why I am buying parts when I am in the Indian Ocean. LOL
It's so nice to be on a ship with internet.
I was once young, thin and fast. Now I'm old, fat, and still fast (in my mind). It just hurts more when I crash!
I might have screwed up somewhere. This setup is going on my 78 chopper that has a stock rectifier and separate regulator. I'm I correct in assuming that I no longer need the regulator? The rectifier that I just got from ebay has 6 prongs on it. And a female plug like my stock replacement part. Where does my wire for the coils plug into. I'm heading out to my shop now so hopefully I can figure this out before I get back to the computer.
Apologies in advance for this but Ive given myself a headache trawling through all these posts/threads re. this alt/rotor conversion - I'll make it short... Are your yank RD's the same as the RD's here in the UK? Are you talking about the early air-cooled 250/350/400's or the later LC's? 'Banshee' or RZ models ,never heard of them...! From what little has sunk in its best to go for these as they slip straight on so to speak .. Is there one definitive post or link that someone can direct me to that wil explain the process in a couple of paragraphs,Im a spannerman not an auto electrician ... Cheers
r80rt: :)This is a splendid write up, THANK YOU!!!!

joshua: The regulator/rectifier unit I got from Mikes PMA has closer hole spacing than original. Are we supposed to mill the holes to fit?
Jun 7, 2017 19:25:58 GMT -5
joshua: My bad. I found the bracket they supplied to mount the rectifier/regulator... Uh oh. How is this meant to work? Which way is it meant to mount? Looks like I have to use some spacers or something. Good instructions would be nice.

craig8johnson: I'm checking the charging system. I'm afraid I might have fried the last battery. With the solid state regulator (after market) what should it be charging at. The book says, I think, 15 volts. I'm hitting 17 when revved. Is that too high?
Jul 11, 2017 18:06:19 GMT -5
gggGary: Yes 17 volts is too high, about 14 volts is max, sounds like you don't have the right regulator or it's wired wrong.

tt650: Trying to breathe life into a 1980 that's been stored (indoors) for 25 yrs. Air filters are dry rotted. Have cleaned carbs but she only runs briefly on choke then stops. Need jet setting info and other ideas that might help her idle and rev.

trix13: Hey everyone! New to the forum and am fighting those gremlins!! New charging system, ignition switch, coil and fuse box. Resistance is higher than normal on the ignition pick up so I'm trying to find one. No such luck yet.

trix13: Also, even though all of my connections are clean, I cannot seem to find out why , when at higher rpms, I hit the signals and the rpms pulse with the signals...hahah. same with the brake light. I appreciate all input!!

jimothyj: Hello everyone, I just joined & wish would have known about this site in 2014 when I brought my 1974 TX650A back from the grave. I have spent a good deal of $$ and alot of time on it. Just painted it and working on electrical, I will post pics soon,

louisvan: trix13 - I had a problem with my 1975 SX650. When I got to highway speeds, the engine lost power. The problem was in the connectors. At a certain vibration and the wind pushing on the wiring loom, the connector lost continuity. A bad crimp to the wire.
