    According to Griff Wooley At Aprillia Performance West Country Windings Have made an attempt at My Generator but i has failed! I am being told 3 companies have tried to rewind and none of them has worked. Bit of a saga Now

    Some bikes were fitted with a magneto with extra strong magnets that burn out the windings.

    The best method would be to get a magneto flywheel that isn't faulty, it's a shame piaggio didn't stump up for a recall of gen 2 bikes that suffer from a manufacturing error. (Aprilia died in 2004 when piaggio bought them out, Ivan Beggio (owner) wouldnt have let this happen to aprilia.

    Find a gen2 flywheel and windings, or buy a later engine with all the bits for spares (I have a gen 1 engine as a paperweight)



    Murphy's law states "it wI'll never go wrong if you hAve a spare" lol
