aussie_phil added a topic in ElectricalRectifier TroubleHi,
I have charging problems with my 150cc project scooter and could do with some help.
It has a new 11 pole stator that is giving out good AC voltage.
With the motor running I am getting only 2 or 3 volts out of the rectifier and the lights don't work.
I slid out the loom for a look and are a little confused.
Everything checks out except for the rectifier wiring. 3 yellow wires ok. Green wire earth ok. White wire goes directly to the enricher which I can not find any sort of resistor like my 50cc. Now the green stripe wire (power out I assume) has been fiddled. It splices out to the positive battery terminal via a diode (that looks original) and gives power to the light switch which used to be powered by a black wire from the ignition which probably would not be a problem - just means the lights only work with the engine running.
I don't know if this is the correct rectifier or if it is faulty even though it check out with a diode test. From my reading I need a wire from the ignition or similar as a control for the rectifier which I do not have and there are no provisions for. So is this ever going to work???
Thanks in advance.

I've got a couple of scooters. The first project was a Sym Orbit 50.
Bought it cheap as it had a chewed out crankshaft bearings. Rebuilt it, added a 50mm BBK with bigger carby and it goes well. The only thing I will do some time is pull the head off and grind a bit more out of the combustion chamber as it still pings a little even on 98 fuel.
My current project is a Xtreme Moto Nitro 150. I bought this one even cheaper in a million bits. I had to replace the crankcase as it had a big crack down the middle. This is where I'm at with it at the moment. It runs but I've got rectifier problems but will post about them in the electrics section.
This is what it will look like when finished.
