Vega stator with Luna flywhweel?

Post  tonka on Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:17 am

Hello,
another newbie with a noob question... I have a stator with five coils in my Luna and cant get no spark out of it just wondering if I need to have a Vega flywheel or should it work as is? Figured Luna had only two coils in statorplate, and previous owner had changed Vega unit to it. Or then Im wrong... Any help is greatly appreciated Smile

I'm not sure wether it's a number of poles issue or wether the cam on the Lui flywheel is in a different place to that of the correct Vega one for the stator you've fitted but my gut reaction is that you should have a matched pair.

I can see points open ok, and green wire even measures out few volts when rotating. I have a new Suzuki ignition coil so that should be fine. Or then it is the problem. But it is a 6v point ign. coil. Getting bit frustrated, but guess this is just normal lunatism Very Happy I will write more when I get home to the laptop. Thanks so far guys!

I think they have to match because the magnets are in different locations. Don't ask me how I know as I'm just going off what I was told when I did my electronic conversion which was a few years back so I cant remember who told me how to do it. I certainly had conversations with Joey F and Jem Booth about what to do so I think Jem might of told me that part...I could of course be wrong. If you can find a Vega flywheel easy enough test it and if it does not fix you can sell on again....

Without looking I would say the Lui flywheel cam would be different to a Vega one as the Lui has a different stroke therefore the timing,even if it did spark, would be out.

Ok, that must be different too if the strokes are, thanks! Anybody have an idea about the fw. part numbers on luna versus vega. My flywheel is 315744 and its a Ducati.

Visually you can tell a Vega flywheel from a Lui one by the number of windows it has. i think Lui has two and Vega has three. Also the Lui has a dust cap that screws on rather than a circlip on a Vega style

Lui and Vega have the same stroke. Both 44mm. The Vega stator will need a Vega flywheel as like you said, Lui is only two pole, whereas the Vega is five.
