Thanks for the information.

For simplicity-sake I am going to run everything off DC. I'm going to connect the stator directly to a quality rectifier/regulator and use a LED headlight to cut down on the load. The Plasmaglow Igniter 25w LED headlight kit seems like a good option for lighting. Have you heard anything about it?

Here is a wiring diagram I whipped up:

I also just received my Ricky Stator DC regulator and rectifier in the mail along with a 3700mah nimh battery! I ordered the Eastern Beaver PC-8 kit to manage all of my electronics.

What do you think about using Harley Davidson handlebar controls? I can find sets without cruise control or radio switches. I'm not saying I will go with chrome, but here is a set:

Do you think HD is the best route to integrate horn, light, engine off, and turn signals into the handlebars? Reading motorcycle reviews, people seem to like the ergonomics of the Harley controls. Whatever route I take, I would like to purchase an entire motorcycle set if possible to improve ergonomics and reduce clutter.
