The alternator consists of two main components: the rotor (magnetic field) which is mounted on the engine sprocket shaft, and the stator (armature) which is bolted to the engine crankcase.


The rotor is circular in shape with an outer flange that extends over the stator. On the inside of the flange there are twelve (12) magnets in a plastic ring.


The stator consists of twelve (12) coils, each wound over a laminated iron core. The coils are positioned radially around the engine crankshaft and bolted to the outside of the engine crankcase.

The stator has a single output winding.
