I used to try running regular small bulbs off the white wire. I found that the only thing I could make work, kinda, are the small 7.5V screw in bulbs I got from Radio Shack. If ya go only 6V you'll blow the bulb when ya rev the engine. Thing is, those little bulbs make it legal, but they don't put out enough light.
You can buy the bulbs and the small socket from The Shack. They are in the slide out trays in the metal cabinet usually in the back of the store.
But like I said, NOT ENOUGH LIGHT. I'm using a 12V 7.5amp safety light backup battery to run my electrics.(they're cheap.) I can use a car headlight if I wanted to. I just plug it in once a week to charge.
I don't know how far along Sgt. Howard is with his light setup, but I think he's got all the bugs worked out for a LED lightset to run off the white wire. I'll look him up and check it out.
