How does the stator work?
A#4:The stator produces electricity by converting the kinetic energy of the rotating flywheel into electrical energy. In English, this means that as the motor spins, the flywheel connected to the crankshaft turns the flywheel around the stator and produces electricity. Similar to an alternator in a car (or a generator/magneto in other applications), the stator and spinning flywheel produce current for the ignition and lighting system. I should note that the ignition and lighting parts of the stator are separate, while both perform the same job of producing electricity, the ignition coil of the stator is a different part of the stator itself than the lighting coil.
