Default Re: Head and tail lights?

No damage, but an off switch for the light is needful to help w/starting the engine & some have found they need to tighten the spark plug gap a hair (.020) for smoother running with the light on. They are kinda picky tho as the "quality" varies from engine to engine, also not all 6v light bulbs are equal, some will draw jus' a lil too much and act like a kill switch - might hafta experiment a lil w/different 6v bulbs

I have this on my first build: and it's still goin' sweet after thousands of miles & I never had a prob or any harm to the electrical system
