These little 100cc-185cc bikes are real easy to kick over. I can see no need for electric starters on them, but a lot of them do. The factories must have thought this was a good selling point. The starter/generator (sometimes called a Starter/Dynamo) is located on the end of the crankshaft and has the ignition points mounted to it too. You will only find these on small bikes because there is no gear reduction and they don’t put out a lot of power. They are quite complicated. They were seen on these little bike up to the mid 1970s. It would seem they are quite reliable because I’m still seeing them, but they are starting to disappear.
I’m not going to go into great detail on their repair because you will only run into these bikes as a cheap kids bike. If something major is wrong, you will not want to pay the money for the part. Why pay $200 to get a $100 bike going ?. You probably can still get a lot of the parts but, it’s just not worth it.
If you do get a hold of one of these bikes you will need a good, fully charged 12 volt battery, in the system, for it to run. Hit the button and away you go. If nothing happens check and make sure the brushes are in good condition. Also check the grounds and all the wire connections for corrosion. Below are some wiring diagrams, showing how this starter works and how it changes from starter to a Generator/Dynamo.
The starter/generator has coils wired in series for the starting of the engine and then it also has coils wired in Parallel or Shunt, to generate power once the engine is running. All this means, to us, is that there are two sets of coils to test. The coils can’t be grounded (Shorted out) to the housing they ride in or have a broken or burned out internal wire that prevents current from passing through them.
The armature is tested like any armature. Continuity between the commutators and no continuity to the armature shaft.
There is no rectifier because this thing generates DC current but a lot depends on the voltage regulator. It keeps the DC volts to the battery under control and charges and changes the different coils in the starter/generator/dynamo unit.
