Here's a pic of BdBanshee's stator plate modded for up to 5 degrees of advance: Q 57:How can I waterproof my stator? Every issue delivers exciting and evocative articles and photographs of the most brilliant, unusual and popular motorcycles ever made! The stator itself is a doughnut-shaped device made up of several poles on the perimeter wrapped with copper wire, and has four wires going to the wiring harness. Strip the insulation off each wire, twist them together, solder the joint, slide heat shrink tubing over the connection so it extends past the insulation on both wires at least 2cm, and use a heat gun to shrink the tubing. A 36:Using an ohmmeter, check for continuity between connectors for each wire color. So if you are getting water into the stator, first check that the rubber gasket on the stator cover is intact and replace it if necessary, and then add a small rubber plug in that hole, or seal it with silicone. Pull the stator cover and check the flywheel nut, if it is loose or fell off, remove the flywheel see Q 48 and see if the key is intact. They are mounted at the coil with a flimsy plastic retainer that tends to break easily if you screw with it. A 31:Similar to Q 29 above, check the resistance between the single yellow wire and the single black wire coming out of the stator.
Q 41:I hit a huge water puddle and my Banshee died, what happened? Here's a pic of Meat's woodruff key, and the crankshaft keyway without the woodruff key installed: Q 10:What does the woodruff key do? A 1:At worst, it flat won't run. Q 33:How do I test the handlebar kill switch? A custom wire harness was necessary, and all manner of small parts had to be custom painted or powder coated. For tips on waterproofing your stator cover see Q 57. Since one piston is on it's compression stroke while the other is on it's intake stroke, having both spark plugs fire at once is not harmful, and from a manufacturing viewpoint makes only a single coil necessary instead of independent coils for each cylinder. Yamaha Rz350 Owner's Manual Used This item has been shown 93 times. Q 28:How do I test for spark? Unplug the single blue wire from the wiring harness, and remove the two 12mm bolts.
A 62:The easiest way to wire aftermarket headlights is to cut off the factory headlight wires between the headlight and the wiring harness connector. A 29:Using an ohmmeter and the specifications above, check the resistance between the red wire and the green wire on the four-wire harness coming out of the stator. At the spark plug end they have a rubber spark plug boot with a built-in resistor, seen on the wire just before the spark plug cap. With the stator plate sitting on a workbench, with the stator coils and pickup coil facing upwards, use your cutting tool to elongate the three stator plate mounting holes counterclockwise, along an imaginary circle that is the diameter of all three bolts. An important note is that the pickup coil needs to have the correct gap between it and the flywheel tabs. Boyson reeds were installed, and Doug milled the heads to raise compression before giving them a complete port job.
You can remove the terminals from the four-wire connector to get them through, see Q 61. Find the four-wire connector usually white , at the front of the airbox on the right-hand side of the bike. I had stumbled across a small band of two-stroke-addicted adrenaline freaks with single-syllable nicknames and more broken body parts than a crashed truckload of porcelain dolls. It takes the electricity produced by the stator's ignition circuit, the input of the pickup coil, and tells the coil when to fire the spark plugs. It's important to note that the taper of the flywheel and the torque on the flywheel nut is what keeps the flywheel mounted securely to the crankshaft.
You know who you are, dumbfucks trying to sell what is free. Q 49:I need to replace the coil, how do I do it? Now rotate the stator plate clockwise, one millimeter for every degree of advance you want to run, by using the reference mark relative to where the upper and lower case halves meet. Let the engine fall under seven grand and you are rewarded with a muted gurgle and very little forward progress. To check the gap, rotate the flywheel until one of the tabs on the outside lines up with the pickup coil either by hand or by moving the kickstarter slowly. Q 55:How do I advance my timing? If you still show an open circuit at the end of the spark plug wire, remove the wire at the coil and test again; if it is still infinite Ohms, the coil is shot, if not the spark plug wire probably is bad. The digital meters are also a little easier to read and can be found in many auto parts stores for around twenty bucks.
If this happens, start with the simplest possible solutions and proceed from there. You can also use a little anti-seize on the bolt to prevent rust, as well as a little dielectric grease on the wiring harness connectors to keep water out of the wiring. Do not use a jaw-type bearing puller! Then thread the center bolt in until it contacts the crank, finger tight. We will use it for better future posts. Then the frame was widened to take a modern box-section swing arm, and deep-black gloss paint was applied.
Do not forget to share and love our reference to help further develop our website. Aftermarket adjustable stator plates cost more and are a little harder to install, but offer the advantage of being able to easily adjust the timing anytime by loosening the stator plate bolts and rotating the plate, or by loosening the pickup coil screws and adjusting the pickup coil mount. Some common things to check are the coil terminals see Q 40 , the wiring harness where a wire may have rubbed against the frame and shorted out this may not show up with a continuity test but will be visible, although you may need to remove the wiring harness to find it , and the stator along with testing resistance you can inspect it for any visibly loose wires or solder joints. With the lightest one-fingered squeeze, it felt like I was doing a push up with Roseanne Barr on my back as my upper body was slammed toward the bars. Here's a good link on how to use an Ohmmeter or multitester: Q 26:How do I use an Ohmmeter to test continuity? Again you can use anti-seize on the bolts and dielectric grease on the connector. The front wheel rips skyward and the engine screams its blood-curdling accompaniment as I shift to second while climbing over the front end to force the wheel back to earth. Install the lockwasher and then the nut.
Make sure you torque that nut!! A 61:You may at some time need to remove the terminals from a connector. Print it out and keep it for future reference, give it to your friends, link directly to this page, whatever, but it's intended for informational use and reference by people who would rather ride and have a good time than turn a quick buck on someone else's efforts. Make sure you note how the wires are routed around the stator plate. We attempt to explore this yamaha rz350 wiring diagram photo in this post simply because according to information from Google search engine, It really is one of many top rated queries key word on google. With the engine together and back in the frame, Doug tackled the many small details a custom project of this nature requires to become a complete motorcycle. I've tried to cover as many electrical issues as possible, from the most basic to the more complex, so some of you may want to skip ahead, and others are welcome to add anything that I've missed or have yet to learn. With the tether installed, the motor should run, and when you yank out the tether, it should die.
