You don't need a CB-350 stator to run 12v, just swap the regulator.  It's the regulator that determines the voltage, not the stator/magnet.  More windings/flux equates to more power out of the alternator which varies as a function of rpm.  The regulator shorts it to ground to control the voltage.



Cool, can this work for a CB100 too, just installing a regulator?

I was taught this a while ago, but then made aware of the stator swap so I tried it out.  Power seemed to ground to the casing post swap, so I've gone back to the stock stator and I'm now using a 12v regulator.

Not sure, I think the 185/200 has the same case/frame mounts (as well as the 100/125).  I doubt the 250 will fit, I bought a crankshaft for one thinking I could graft it into the XL I had a few years ago and it's a lot bigger.  I was also looking at the Chinese clone engines at that time as well, I think it fits.
