Saw on the LCGB site that you can wire up a car battery charger to the wiring loom to test your lights.
I`m assuming you put the neg terminal to earth, but where does the pos terminal go.
Do you disconnect the brown from the regulater and connect there or do you have to include the regulater in the circuit.
12v a.c Electronic loom
Also will i damage the horn as it`s a.c.
Hope this makes sense. Cheers.

Yes ,connect the positive to the loom brown and the earth to the frame.Don't run thru the reg and just a short blast on the horn,it will just tend to buzz , but shows power is there. I use a m/c battery that isn't fully charged as if there is a short in the wiring it won't melt it.
