I have a friend who is building a triumph chopper. He is considering using a new ARD mag and would prefer not to run a battery. What should he consider using in the charging system to run headlights, brakelights, etc and does anyone have a simple wiring diagram for a batteryless magneto bike.

I've decided how to fund my retirement. I will manufacture in Singapore a chrome-plated billet engine-turned magneto housing that attachs in the proper place, and holds your lunch but doesn't interfere with the engine. It will cost only 75% as much as a magneto, and I will sell 10,000 of them.
Can you guess where I'm going?

I saw some pics a looooong while ago of an Norton ES2 fitted with a Lucas/CAV injector pump instead of a magneto and it was piped up to an injector instead of a sparkplug!

Sorry for the humour DRP but I guess the point is that the magneto is long dead and pretty much unmourned by those who had to use and work on the bloody things, the idea of hanging a maggy off the timing side of a Triumph is a hoot.

Put on a typanium unit simple 4 wire connection, add a capacitor, and run a hot wire from batt to switch. Should do the trick

Copied & pasted from another thread. You can run batteryless with either a Mity Max or a Tympanium w/capacitor. Chopperheads can appreciate how mags look, but usually avoid using them anymore due to the aggravation. It's your call.

***For + ground...

Components for ignition system:

3 Position Ignition Switch
Mity Max
2 Coils
2 Condensors
One 15-20 amp in-line fuse

2 Green Wires on Mity Max > 2 Alternator Wires
Red Wire on Mity Max > In-line Fuse > To Ground on Frame
Black Wire on Mity Max > Battery Terminal of Ign. Switch

2 Points Wires > 2 + Terminals of Coils (one to each)
2 Condensors > + Terminals of Coils (one each) > Condensors Grounded to Frame
Jumper Wire Between 2 - Terminals of Coils
One wire from one - Terminal of one Coil (already jumped) > Ign. Terminal of Ign. Switch

Lighting system is easy as well, but this should get you fire-up.***

Alternate options:

You can run one dual tower coil w/one condensor (rule of thumb being one condensor per coil)

You can substitute a Tympanium in place of the Mity Max by adding a capacitor. (Mity Max has it's own internal cap) Just wire the cap in as if it were a battery. There ARE "flickering lights" issues at low rpm when running batteryless, but if your rotor/stator are in good condition, this issue becomes lessened.
