Default GN250 stator wiring

Im looking for a bit of help on this one 1983 gn250 came to me as a wreck and im fixing her up

the wires i have from the stator are 3x yellow the plug has been removed
and the wires on the loom side connector are 1x yellow 1x white with blue stripe and 1x white with green stripe

what id love to know

1. Is the output from each winding suppose to be the same eg: they made it different colors for no good reason and i can just connect any of the three yellow wires to any position on the loom

2.if they are not all the same how to tell what windings connect to what colors on the loom eg:winding one produces x amount of volts ac and should be connected to the white and green wire

i have the full workshop manual an aftermarket color wiring diagram and its still unclear as to the correct
setup

thx

I can't see your pics, just little red "x's", but the three yellow stator wires are each one phase of the alternator's windings - and should all be essentially identical in output.

Each are interchangeable. If the bike runs backward, just reverse any two of the yellow wires..........

hmm dunno bout the pics i must be doing somthing wrong there

thx for the help my old bike is a 2stroke yamaha and has a single phase stator that im quite good at fixing .

I belive as you say that the GN has three identical windings with the same output so does that make it an (alternator) with the regulator/rec joing the three "phases" together to gain a cleaner dc current am i on the right track here ???

That's pretty-much the sum of it.

It's "better" than a single-phase; but still saddled with the permanent-magnet "excitation", and the regulation strategy of dumping excess power as heat - most bike charging-systems still have a ways to go, if one is looking for "output".

Someday, within our lifetimes, this site may allow it's paid subscribers to post photos correctly. It's a dream we all share.

Pics haven't worked for months. You can put them up for free on photobucket and then link to them.
