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

Oh btw dont run power out of that bike into that battery, you will fry it. Bike put's out AC from the white wire meaning the polarity flip flops. this will not charge a battery it will only damage it. If you try to run led off the white wire it will flicker at low rpms because it is only getting half the power wave. A voltage regulator/rectifier is needed to properly chg a battery without damaging it. I am running a 3v incandescent, bulb for my headlight and running 8 3.5v led's in paralell using my bikes frame as ground and white as my positive. Leds filcker because of the half wave but I am building a charging circuit, for batteries and to run the Leds properly.
