I am in the process of building a prototype wire harness to have a full lighting system that is self recharging. Once I have a complete working harness I will test it for a month strait and concider production .

This harness will support an array of functions such as a break light, running lights , head light, turn signals ,and a horn. Also trying to work in a charger for your favorite devices such as a music player or cell phone as you roll down the road.

The list of supplies comprise of :

1) The battery is the life blood of our lighting systems . I am gonna be starting with a 12v SLA battery in a case to power everything on the bike such as this one.



Mounted similar to this



Now that ive found my power source I need a way to recharge it as I ride right , and thanks to Wonderfull Creations I will start with the ....

2) MINI-GENERATOR .... a stand alone coil that wont drag your motor down like an anchor like it does when using the white wire ( wich is usless in my opinion )



Mounted in the Magnito section to generate a current directly tward the battery such as depicted below



Next is a way to inhance the power flow to charge the curnet now flowing tward the battery

3) 12 Volt Mini-Charger



This is whats gonna help your battery keep going along with the mini generator .

Now that we have a power scorce capable of working continuously there is the next stage , Lighting.

Re: wire harness

4) head light from Harbor Freight $9.99



This light is a 12v, 55w halogen work light , problem is it eats power like crazy so we have to step down her hunger buy getting ,

5) H3 Car SMD 26 LED White Headlight Bulb Head Light 12V 3W



This should curb her appatite LOL

6) LED Tail light



7) LED Turn signals




**********************************************************
Now its time to get the controles so you can activate the break and turn signals so these 4 wheelers can disern what direction we are going and can be seen.


8) The handlebar controles is your line of defence from becoming a SPLAT on someones front bumper .



This will controle all your lights and a horn such as this one

9 Horn



Then you need the lever that controles your breaks and break light .

10) Dual break lever , wired



And to operate the turn signals don't forget to get a flasher unit

11) turn signal relay


Once I get all the materials to assemble it , I will find a way to connect a charging port for a cell phone or a GPS and test it for a month to work out the kinks.

Re: wire harness

the only thing that is important to me in a headlight is the lumens

Re: wire harness

Some states require a lighting system that is fully fuctional if your gonna ride where there is heavy traffic . Like my state ..... this is the reason for this set up for my bike

Re: wire harness

PA requires headlights and tail lights for bicycles. I have both, as well as a brake light. My brake light is powered by a single 7.2v nicad (r/c car battery). My headlight is powered by 2 7.2v nicads to produce 14.4v. My taillight is powered by 2 AAA batteries. I just charge the nicads in the house, since they dont need charged all that often. Every few weeks to a month. My brake lever has a built-in brake light switch. It also had a horn button, which I removed to make room for a toggle switch to control my headlight. A self-charging system is a great idea, though, especially for the ht engines (which I do not have, lol). Good luck on designing your system.

Re: wire harness

Hi Dave, did you ever get this up and running? Any chance you might have a wiring diagram? I'm working on a system of my own at the moment and I'm killing brain cells.
