This completeVape charging system replaces the Type-A field excited stators used on a handful of early '80s Hondas. Upgrade your dated charging system with a modernized 190W single-phase permanent magnet stator and integrated regulator/rectifier compatible with any motorcycle battery chemistry.
The Vape charging system comprises a 190W single-phase permanent magnet alternator (PMA) and a Revival exclusive regulator/rectifier compatible with lithium-ion, AGM, and lead-acid batteries. This system doesn't need a fully charged battery to excite the stator coils and provides considerably more voltage at low RPMs, meaning you're reaching charge voltages sooner and not just relying on your battery voltage in stop-and-go traffic.

You can integrate Vape systems with the Motogadget mo.Unit for a 100% modernized electrical system on a vintage bike.
Pay particular attention to the instructions regarding tightening all of the screws on the ignition. They are finger-tight from the factory. We recommend using a blue thread locker on all hardware to eliminate any possible backout from vibration.
Vape kits do not come with a woodruff key slot. We hear concerns about this from time to time. We use these on our own projects and in all the years we've sold these, we've never seen a single issue. Many bikes don't use keys, and a correctly installed rotor doesn't need one. Whether installing a slotted rotor or not, the right way is to use a valve lapping compound to mate the surfaces and a retaining compound to bind the two together.
Bought this back in September. Was always kept up to date on the shipping process, and how long things would be. Very happy with the delivery.
The system itself is very easy fit to a bike. I put it on my 81 CB750F, no dramas or hassle whatsoever. Has held up well so far. Very good product.
100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
