Hello everyone,
I’m replacing the stator on my 67 Victor with a reproduction Lucas 5 wire et but the wires are not colored the same as the stock stator. I’m wondering if anyone has any info that can help me out?
New stator color’s, solid red, solid blue, solid brown and 2 black/yellow wire’s.
Old stator color’s, brown/blue, solid red, brown/white, black/yellow, solid brown.
Thanks in advance for any help,

BSA on eBay

2 black and yellow wires
... are to the coils( condensers and points )
... one wire to each set ... ( these are actually conductive to each other , in a loop , through the points plate)

.... when used on a single ... one of the black and yellow wires is added to the red wire ( ground )
( this makes this wire the same as connected to a set of points that is always closed )
and the other wire is to the coil ... earthing the extra black/y , or black/w ... turns a 5 wire stator into a 4 wire stator
... on paper ... it does not matter which of these 2 wires is used ... but in the real world you 'may' find that one
Starts the bike, or runs the bike ... a tiny bit easier than the other .

brown ... to brake light ( filament )

red ... to ground

blue ... to lighting circuit ( headlight , tail light filament and horn )
