    Since the NE5 has a 12-volt battery, it follows that there must be a Generator to charge it.

    Since there's a Generator, then there is no further need for a Magneto to furnish the spark, which would mean that there is now an Electronic Ignition System to furnish a spark once every 720 crankshaft degrees, instead of every 360, as with the Magneto.

    So now we're not "wasting" a spark when it's not needed, at the top of the Exhaust stroke!

    Have a nice evening, everyone...I'm going to have a Rum & Coke (or 2 or 3) while watching the Election Returns!

    Hi Hal, NOPE, An NE5 fires every 360 when the timing tab passes the Hall Effect Transistor.

    There is an alternator, with a permanant magnet rotor assembly in the flywheel, rotating around a fixed multi coil stator.

    Then off to a relay (instead of a square wave rectifier). thru a voltage regulator, and on to the Battery.

    On the ignition side, power (signal) flows to a cdi, and then coil, to fire the plug.
