   Not point scoring- just (trying to) saving confusion... I was running a halogen Stop/Tail, and it was drawing ~ 0.8/3.8A ,but my current (no pun intended *bash*) LED's are I think only sucking ~ 0.08A & 0.8 A respective, but that's from memory a while ago, and not sure if the pilot was included. Todays measuring is ditorted by the tail/stop  only half working, but as the photos may show is still better than a stock setup...have to split the pics  up due to file allowance, and think I got it right- the file names didn't carry across the same *conf*

 Pic #1  showing missing LED
         2       "      Same with lens on
         3        "     tail @ ~ 2 mtr, with Pilot in background shining on wall @ ~ 0.8 mtr
         4        "     Stop @   same as ^^^

Hi...I purchased a bike the several months prior, and as of late gotten it to (semi) running request. At the point when it runs, it runs incredible. Be that as it may, it just runs for brief time. It is a 12 volt battery. Don't think about generator, should discover. Are there 12 volt generators accessible for A10s? Or then again is a 6V to 12V change assemble required?

Hello there, just joined? A post in introductions would be appreciated, where you could tell us about your bike.
Do you have an A10 or A7? Does it have coil ignition or magneto?

The forum search function will help you find more info on batteries, dynamos, alternators (very rare on these bikes), 6 to 12 V conversions and also carburation.

Alternatively, if it’s specifically on charging and ignition you’re needing info then Priory Magnetos website has good technical articles.

Also - probably best to start a new thread to describe your problem.

Otherwise - welcome to the forum.
