Oliver,

I am having a hard time typing this between laughng at the stupid responses, like yours, crying over the fact that someone can make it through high school knowing so little about electricity and laughing at the amusing responses from the few who understand.

In the spirit of the moment, I will now grade this thread. : )

>hi all, at jcwhitney.com they have a 6volt horn for sale. would this work on 6volt >peds??

Oliver, if you are so smart, why did you ask this question? You knew your "ped" was 6v dc, you knew cars and motorcycles use dc. The only problem you could have is a battery, or horn wiring which can't handle the horn current.

Next time you post, tell us something about the "ped" like how mant wheels it has, this will probably get you better answers.

>Most peds are AC, most horns for other applications are DC and will not work >correctly.

This post, of course, is perfect. Don't argue with me! I am doing the grading here!

>are you on drugs???? ALL mopeds are DC the only part that is ac is the >ignitionsystem, then a silicon rectifyer changes it to dc. for lamps, horns, etc...

Oliver, if you can come out of your drug induced haze just long enough for some enlightenment; this is a Moped Forum Mo(Motor)-Ped(Pedals), if you are posting about some other type of vehicle, please say so and avoid all the confusion. If it is 50cc you will probably get an answer even if it is a scooter. You have described a scooter electrical system fairly well, pity you asked your question about a moped. Almost all mopeds have no rectifier or battery and run everything on ac at 6 or 12 volts.

>mopeds (as opposed to scooters) don't even have ignition systems.

Miguel!!! Read before you post! I am sure you meant to say "charging" instead of ignition, otherwise, if your spark plug simply prevented compression loss, why would it have to be platinum? : )
