1987hondaxl 600 r stator wiring question

Newbie got a 1987honda xl 600r supertrapp silencer took to the shop had carbs cleaned and adjusted needed new stator so i got a dual output stator online moose i think lost paperwork wiring instructions anyway my stock stator had a red and black wire a pink wire a yellow wire and a yellow / whit wire new stator has red/black 2 white wires a yellow wire and a green wire does anyone know how to hook these wires up or if its even the rite stator for this bike. They said it would work but like i said lost all paperwork bummed cant ride bike any help would be much appreciated

Try the internet for a wiring diagram.  If I was to guess the red/black would be ignition/CDI.  That can be checked with a voltmeter, if it is ignition it will be 50+ volts A/C even kicking it over.  I would hook the yellow to yellow on the bike,  The other white ones are probably the equivalent of the pink and yellow/white.  Green would likely be ground, that could be confirmed with an ohmmeter.


Charge and light wires will be less than 20 volts while running and unregulated A/C out of the stator.

If my memory is right they had one coil for CDI one coil for AC headlight with a AC reg. Then one coil with reg/rec for battery and it ran rest of lights. You can wire the two lighting coils together for one high output lighting coil. The same setup as a Ricky Stator stator for a XR600 just lookup the diagram on RS site

      This replaces part 9 in the exploded parts diagram for the 85 86 87 xr600r.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
