Default Re: Electronics?

Sneak a peak at the wiring diagrams in old motorcycle service manuals. The Brits were fond of running the output of the lighting mag through a bridge rectifier then a Zener diode to regulate it to whatever voltage they needed (6V in the early days, then 12V).
I had an old Kawasaki that came off the mag and then into a $50 magic box that rectified and regulated the voltage.
