Re: 12v DC wiring

I presume the bike is running, Most new looms AC or DC only have one feed wire from the back to the headset, It will more than likely be a brown and stop off at the rear Brake pedal and the horn before getting to the headset. But before you get there you need to connect your DC regulator, as above t...

Re: Bloody lights !

Rare for a stator lighting coils to pack in. Easy to check continuity with a voltmeter often the cable has been rubbing the flywheel or the final earth tab has parted company or a loose rivet all easy fixes.

Re: Bloody lights !

with a Voltmeter or at least 12V test lamp with a couple of wires soldered to it, it's easy enough. 1st thing is anything working? Depending on your loom, lots of simplified AC or DC? ones kicking around then do you have a Key switch light or handlebar. The simplest way to answer your question your ...

Re: Jerez 22 leaking

Re: not another ignition question!

The full DC wassel conversion with the extra wire added to the stator is great, if you cant solder by a BGM or whoever is doing them at the moment. The output going to your Brown feed will be over 13.5VDc running so simply connect a Battery to the Brown and it will be trickle charged. You do need to...

Re: Help Understanding stator test results.

sorry meant to add the stator measurements are for the coils for the ignition so as long as it runs will not change the light output.

Re: Help Understanding stator test results.

Personally I don't have a separate earth from the engine, the frame is the earth but I do tend to daisy chain things like cdi mount, regulator rear light and always have a good one on the headlight. what you are describing is normal an AC system, (a stator with a 120W output No such thing IMO) and m...

Re: Casa Kit on 6 volts?

The original Casa kit was designed for upgrading a standard bike without changing carbs pipes and keeping a fully working 6v system shouldn’t be a problem.

Re: LED COB Headlights (spanners manual)

As no one else is around I will throw in my 2p I have looked at a lot of LED options over the years and in my case I opted for a HID conversion that I’m sure would not pass an MOT if I needed one. LED come in ranges from the old dome type that you still see in some replacment bulbs for tail lights a...

Re: Series 1 Wiring /elecrtonic ignition

Any green on the main loom is kill switch not an earth. 1 green from the stator to the CDI you only need 1 other green to the 2 nd CDI green the other end at the headset goes to the kill switch. The extra wire was used with a coil.
