I know it has a "regulator" but what it regulates is the amount of a.c. Watts it lets thru, not the voltage. (at least that is what I've been told)

LEDs need a pretty stable voltage or they will die very quickly.

there's nothing stopping me from isolating tomos regulator from the frame (its currently set to go to the lights) and hooking the output of it to a bridge rectifier to convert it to dc (or use the regulator/rectifier). Then hook the minus to the frame and the plus to the wiring harness.. Then you should be able to add a battery so your lights won't dim anymore.
