Default Re: 6v custom headlight rig. need someone smarter than me

Run a standard bulb in your setup not the one out of the spot light. A standard 3.5-6v bulb will run without any issues right off the white wire. Mine is plenty bright. I made it out of a cheap $1.79 flashlight, it was ugly plastic and yellow. I cut it up moddified it and painted it. All in all $2.50 maybe went into my light, I'll post pics later but it a pretty bullet style light and it is bright running off the white wire. So much white wire if people just researched what types of lights to use there wouldn't be so many issues. Like Hough said though a spotlight uses a lot of watts and the bike will not ignite the coil element.
