My buddy likes his 420 auto so much that he bought this ae 500 last year and the seller gave him a box of parts for it . I brought this bike home Memorial Day weekend to get it going . I’ve been working on here and there as time allows so I haven’t been able to get real deep into it yet so here starts my questions . In the box of parts there was another stator , flywheel , motoplat black lead coil and a black lead pal coil . The spare stator looks to be a 3 wire mini 6 stator and on the bike is a 5 wire stator . I think that may also be a mini 6 but not sure as I haven’t removed the flywheel yet . Looking at the spare stator , the numbers match the flywheel currently on the bike so I know there is a miss match there . This is a 1984 ae 500 , can anyone verify what should be the original stator ? The bike didn’t have spark as received with the black lead motoplat coils but does when using a red lead coil . I was curious and started to do a bit of research . Looks like the crank stub on the ae 500 has the same part number as my 81 cr 430 which has the internal rotor motoplat . Has anyone tried one of these on the ae 500 ? I believe it work be quicker revving maybe to the point of being un- rideable , less momentum while kick starting and maybe more prone to stalling . If anyone else has tried this , what did you find ? Here’s a long shot question , does anyone know if the tapers on the internal rotor motoplat are the same between a husky and let’s say a Maico ? I haven’t tried to measure and compare yet but have been thinking about this for a while as I do have access to multiple Maico ignitions . Back to the mini-6’s , I know they should be a matched set (stator and flywheel ) but besides the obvious difference of the number of wires coming from the stator , is one better or move preferred than the other ? ( for reliability , starting or powering lighting ?) I did try some searches looking for answers , either I missed them or used wrong search parameters . Thank you .
