I just sold my 74 t150 and I'm trying to help the new owner sort out a charging issue. When I look at the picture of the stator in the parts book it shows 3 wires but I would swear the one on the bike had two. In the parts description it calls it a Lucas 47205, 99-1016, RM21. The shop manual also describes checking between the 3 leads. What gives?
I actually have a one ohm resister that I've used to check output at the stator leads and also at the rectifier brown/blue wire connection. I'm going to try to get over to his house and do some testing.
If the output is low what are the options?
High out 16amp 200W stator? Needs a different rectifier or some version of podtronics?
3 phase with new podtronics?

Or you could do what the modern manufacturers have done, reduce the electrical load. LED lights and modern ignition that only charges the coils for the time required for saturation.

I agree, even if I still use an old RITA with 4 volt coils, I've run a LED headlamp for years and the battery stays charged even with a lot of low speed work. In the old days I used to fit a 3 phase, but unless you plan to use accessories like heated grips etc. there's really no need.
