What is a Flywheel

What Does a Flywheel Do?

A magneto flywheel is tied to the motor’s crankshaft and turns at the same speed as the engine. It uses permanent magnets to convert the mechanical rotational energy into electricity. To do so, the flywheel spins around an alternator stator (a series of copper coils) and creates alternative current. This current is then used to charge the battery and power every electrical system on the vehicles.
