Will a 12v light work on a stock Honda pa50ii

I have a stock Honda pa50ii and my headlight broke. I was wondering if I could put a 12v light on without any issues? Just curious because they don’t make many 6v ones. Thanks

You just need a good seal beam?

I’m looking at getting something like this light and then getting the MLM mounting kit. The one I found that looks like this is 12v though so I just wanted to make sure it will work with a stock system

Short answer is no. Unless you convert the system to 12v (edited)

Yeah dude 12v bulbs on a 6v system work fine. They're rated for 12 volts but the 6 volts you're putting out will still light it up.

It won't be very bright.

12v bulb will probably work, but not as bright.

That said when I was wiring up my e50 maxi, I was just throwing whatever bulb fitted to make sure it was wired up right couldn't get the lights to work properly. Turns out having a 12v in the front and 6v in the rear (or vice versa) was throwing the resistance off or something.

Worked fine as long as I had matching voltage bulbs both end.

Something I've never heard mention, but might stop some head scratching.

You could make and install a voltage doubler .

Just get the treats replacement bulb, then you can replace filaments with the right one and not replace the whole assembly every time.
