Re: adding a battery to ac sil ignition

This is an interesting thread as I bought a vespa type regulator to charge my battery on my indian AC Gp a couple of years ago and could never get it to work. In the end I bought a scootRS small type half wave rectifier which works fine to a point. However I don't think it's charging my 12v battery ...

Re: New ScootRS Vespa disc brake conversion
