The stator is inside the primary cover (left side of the bike while sitting on it) Not sure what setup you have but if it has stock triumph charging equipment take it all off and replace that with a rectifier/regulator you will be better off with it... I have been running one on my 1970 Triumph 750 custom for about 10+ years with no trouble..... This only cost about $50 and well worth it!!!! Avoid the Mitty Max they are junk........ Best of luck.....

Triumph daytona 650 05 model having problems charging the old and new battery told it could be the rectifier /regulator how can I check

I have a good idea, this is if you change the batt and it did not charge try with a volt meter re on the + being red lead B- being minus set to dc volt set to 20 volt check charging system this being 14+ volt is the reading to getand also rev engine to moderet rpmto see if it drop slow or fastif it drops to 12 and below may be reg, now find the three like wire to the reg test for A/C volt 65 and higher at 5000 RPM that will also indecate reg that is if there are no burnt wire which will be see when you go to check the voltage readings. Have fun

1968 triumph bonneville bobber. she runs like a banshee... untill i turn on lights. have no battery,minimal electric{headlamp,tailight} would ugraded magneto{ maybe joe hunt} help? i live in fla. and law...

The stock Triumph configuration for running without a battery is the addition of a large condenser:;_ylt=AwrB8pBz0OpS5nAAQDqJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTIzNHViMGExBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1nBG9pZANhYWY4ZGVlMzU0N2VlZTJmMjRiNDMzMjUzOTM3ZmFmNgRncG9zAzE1BGl0A2Jpbmc-?

The spring mount helps isolate vibration.

The condenser stores excess alternator current, and feeds it back into the electrical circuit as needed.
Also smooths out fluctuations of the charging current, as a battery would.
