Ardee,

Thanks for the info and pics of your Hornet. Some of the links didn't work. You got a good start with what you've got there. A good idea is to get the CDwith the part manuals and shop manual as the Hornet has some different parts not common to the other A65/A50 models of the period.

The original Hornet stator is a 5 wire unit, but some of the wires are not used as they are for adding lights. And that stator/ET coil combo didn't produce much in the way of light brightness anyway. Not good for riding at night, just for getting you home after a brew at the local pub. Don't know what you got on there, could be either 6 or 12 volt that someone added.
