Still with six volt here on all bikes.

The downside I am experiencing is that EVERY six volt LED headlamp I have purchased has given me trouble.

M23 BA15 frequently goes dim like a side light on dip. I ride with an Xposure push-bike light in case!
A10SR double dipper BPF is on full beam whether dip or main (both sides tested from separate supply and whole bulb illuminates)

Two of the new improved LED bulbs just bought from Goffy (very helpful!) have gone straight back as one had no dip and the other did not dip, just went dimmer on both sides.
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

Sav -  the 'classic dynamo regulator conversions' 6v 5th gen bulb shines brightly on my 6v a10. it should for the price of it. but it is h4 so you need a new reflector or get creative with the bulb mount and some tie wire into the old bpf reflector. all the other 6v bulbs i tried were rubbish.

Cheers will take a look at that once I have tested the replacement bulbs that arrived promptly, as usual, from Goffy.

Might be a few days as I lost an argument with a medium sized tree I was felling after the weekend's storm damage. Damn thing pivoted and sprung back, skinning my knuckles rather a lot (lucky really) . Won't be wearing gloves for a few days!

Bring back acetylene. 0 volts. Just need water (plenty of that about) and no prince of darkness to frustrate you at every turn. My charging has just stopped. Again. Can't keep up with fixing things anymore, so just charge the battery once a week (no night riding).
