Default Re: Motorbicycling 6V electrical system?

I've been pondering this idea myself and I think you will probably need a voltage regulator on the white wire to prevent overcharging and possibly a diode to keep the battery from feeding back into the magneto. Hopefully Norman will see this. He has done some work using the white wire to power a light. It might be easier to use a motorcycle battery to run a regular bicycle light system directly then just charge the battery at home periodically.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
