battery isn't charging.
Battery is good
Replaced rectifer (didnt help)
There is voltage coming from wire from stator (3-5 volts)

Please help

best place to start is scooterhelp.com and find your diagram in the wiring section

make sure yours is like it

there is usually a violet or something coming from the batt and spliced in with the fuse to the battery

if that wire is not connected to the rec in the slot its supposed to be in you wont get a charge

alot of people cross the two violeys/purples on the rec

Year of bike?
5 wire, 7 wire or double yellow wire stator?
Is the fuse good?
Zombies?

There is a black wire comes from the rectifer to the negative terminal of the battery. Red wire, positive has a fuse and does not go to rectifier. My understanding is voltage trickles to the battery through the battery ground from the rectifier.

1979 scooter
5 wire rectifier
yellow runs from stator(internally) to rectifier another runs from stator to regulator whichs gives spark to sparkplug, another runs from stator to the headlight.

All is good except battery isn't charging.

I was always under the impression with the double yellow stator that the two coils had tied together but were inversely wired.....such that they fed the rectifier the full wave....with each yellow handling one half of the AC sign wave for full wave rectification.

are you speaking to the 5 pole rectifier? one yellow runs to the CDI unit which fires sparkplug.

I'm beginning to think my positive wire from battery may not wired to stator as per wiring diagram.

full investigation underway next weekend.

I don't think you should have a double yellow stator with a 5-pole (not without modification). Could you clarify the colors coming out of the stator?

Stator voltage should be much higher than 3-5 volts. I would start there.

Hold on....the Regulator/rectifier has nothing to do with the sparkplug.
We need to know the colour of the wires from the stator (under the flywheel)

a double yellow stator has the

RED, WHITE and GREEN wires that run to the ducati CDI.

obviously 2 yellows that run to the rectifier...

and i think a purple that runs to the rectifier as well, but is a straight-AC line that's meant to be regulated and then run to the headlight.

this is all from memory, though.

A double yellow stator can't be used directly with a 5 pole regulator unless one of the yellow wires is grounded.
However, I would check into the stator voltage. It's much too low.

*partial but related thread jack* Have you made progress on hooking up the double yellow up to your Stella?

The thing is - if it's a '79 engine, it's likely got a 4-pole rectifier on it. The problem is that people sometimes confuse the 4 and 5 pole ones, thinking the 4 have 5.


So, i'll ask the thread poster to either get a pic of his rectifier and post it, or tell us if there are two poles on it that are marked yellow ...
