MIDESOTAS - IN STOCK AND READY TO ROCK!

Hey! I remember this blog thing. It's weird but useful in it's own strange way. FINALLY! I made about a dozen all finished in chrome. Order while supplies last. Also check out our Kung-fu Kicker if you need a cheap and easy shift option to run with the mids. These work great with your stock forward brake set up so that ones kind of a no-brainer. Thanks! Also check out me and my homies on Instagram.

Peoples Champ - Generator Magneto

I always wanted to make a gen mounted magneto. Never for a fancy "show motor"... just for fun. I made a cone mounted magneto a few months earlier which really gave me an understanding of some of the basics. I noticed that everyone this year was getting really turned on to the Wico design but when I researched it myself I realized 2 things that I WAS NOT down with. First, you need to alter the inside of the case byP= machining the idler gear boss casting and ultimately removing it. This edit to the case is just silly and shortsighted. Second, the price tag for the kit is $2k!!! I'm a normal person with a normal job who makes regular pay with 2 kids and a wife at home. $2k just ain't happening. The other option is the Morris H5 which is super rad but again, at $1600, unfortunately I'll have to pass. I looked at the inside of my case and the gears and I looked at how the old Harley XR magnetos operated. They were gear driven. Well wouldn't you know... the Morris design is gear driven too! I bought a shitty FM-XD mag from ebay and butted it up to the gen hole. Surprise, it's a very close fit! Not perfect but close. More important, the FMXD has an impulse winding just like the H5. IMG_4418 IMG_4425 IMG_4427 IMG_4443 After reviewing the case, the mag and the gears I had a good overview of the project. 1. A collar is required to mount the mag to the case. 2. The magneto needs to spin in reverse. 3. The impulse winding needs to be reversed. 4. A gear set is needed to adapt the idler gear to the magneto. 5. The magneto must spin at exact 1:1 ration with the cam. 6. A fresh FM-XD magneto must be converted to a dual fire coil.   More to come on this in my next blog post.
