How do I know if my stator is AC or DC?
The stator styles ( AC or DC )refer to the available ignition power. A AC style stator will have the odd ball paper covered pole/s that generate ac ignition power. It includes a ac lighting coil output circuit and a ac ignition power coil circuit. A DC style stator will not have the oddball poles for ignition power.
Does a stator produce AC or DC?
The stator is the coil of wire housed inside the engine case. A magnet on a shaft spins within the stator, creating alternating current ( AC ). That current travels along fairly heavy gauge wire through the case and into the rectifier/regulator which converts it to DC power, and at a consistent output.
Do all motorcycles have a stator?
Because motorcycles use different amounts of energy, not every stator is alike. The stator must produce the appropriate amount of energy for the bike, leaving lots of room for variation, especially when looking at the power and torque differences between a 3 wheel motorcycle and a traditional two-wheel bike.
What are the signs of a bad stator?
The stator coil generates the power for the spark plug and other accessories on small engines Without a stator there would be no spark at all, meaning the engine won’t run. While a stator is dying, it can produce a weak spark, causing the engine to miss or run poorly. Symptoms are often worsened as the engine warms up.
How many volts should a stator put out?
For example a 32-amp stator should put out 18 volts AC (VAC) per each 1000-RPM. At 2000 it should be 36 VAC (18×2). At 3000 RPM it should be 54 VAC (18 X 3). Each system has a certain voltage it should produce per 1000 RPM.
Why stator is used in DC motor?
In a DC motor, the stator provides a rotating magnetic field that drives the armature to rotate. A simple DC motor uses a stationary set of magnets in the stator, and a coil of wire with a current running through it to generate an electromagnetic field aligned with the centre of the coil.
What makes a stator go bad on motorcycle?
It’s usually the insulation between windings breaking down or more often windings to metal – SOME of that (age related) is chemical and heat, but often it’s a mechanical failure – the windings are either loose and wear the insulation away between turns, or more common the insulation on the inside wears away against the
Can a motorcycle run without a rectifier?
Re: running without a regulator rectifier It won’t damage anything to run without a working reg/rec. The issue is that you’ll have a very limited range, so the engine might die on you at any time; typically not while riding under load, but rather when you go to idle to come to a stop.
Will a motorcycle start with a bad Rectifier?
The rectifier is part of the charging system. If you put a freshly charged battery in your motorcycle, and you have a bad rectifier, it won’t stop your motorcycle from starting, but your battery wouldn’t stay charged. The regulator/ rectifier on your motorcycle performs two functions.
What causes a stator to go bad?
There are a few things that may cause a stator to fail. Too heavy of a load when operating accessories (winch,heated grips,headlights, etc). If working several of these items at one time (plowing/pulling/possibly stuck at night) you would overload the system. This could cause either the stator or rectifier to fry.
Can a bad stator cause backfire?
There are a few things that may cause a stator to fail. Hereof, can a bad stator cause backfire? The AC power windings have nothing to do with the ignition coils on a stator. Runs good at lower rpms but runs bad at higher rpms (High speed coil is going bad ) Backfiring and just won’t run good.
Why is DC test used to determine the stator resistance?
As input is DC so there will be no induced voltage in the rotor and no current will move in the DC. The reactance (Xr) of the motor will also ‘0’ at DC.
