Ignition Componentry

July 16, 2014


Here “magneto” means the the entire assembly, the rotating part “flywheel”, and the stationary part “stator”. CEV, Bosch, Dansi, Novi, Motoplat, are the main brands of European made moped magnetos. Moped magnetos, besides generating the source of ignition spark, also contain one or more separate lighting coils, for head light, tail light, horn, speedo light, and brake light. The fact that the headlight comes on when the engine is turned over does not mean that the spark is good or bad, because head lights (except Angel/Speed Bird and Motobecane) are separate from ignition.
