Put in a lifan 125...changed everything to 12 volt... But the headlight is 6 volt(original much better than any plastic sh$# from Thailand. So I want to reduce the volts just to the headlight. Is this doable?
Should be, or maybe just find a 12 led or sealed beam that will fit, I don't know much about electrical, but damn what a cool bike? Slam shift? I bet it flies, not normally into lifan swaps, but this looks to be really nice, and I love the Atomic green paint with the whitewalls! Specs on the bike?
A DC step down is not ideal. Just run a 12v variety bulb.
bought it at a garage sale with 496 miles for $250. Didnt know it was a steal....rode it as main transpo for a couple years put 6000 miles on the 80...then i started polishin it and whatnot...lifan 125 4 speed 4 up....shook itself off twice...just fabbed this threaded in frame mount up and its money...fun bike to ride...nitro injected as well for s and g not in pic
is there one that fits in my bucket...had the plastichrome one and hated the look
you need a 6v regulator so you can use your stock headlight. no big deal,
4.5 inches bulb is PAR36 trade size, look for a 12V low watt consumption bulb in that size. If you have the regulator/rectifier and battery from the Lifan setup then go for LED ike this HomeDepot one
Rebel has the ticket as always... get a new bulb you should be fine. I did not know what I was going to see when I pumped this thread but I was presently surprised.
Not a fan of Lifan swaps but this one looks fun.
