Kit burns lights out.

My new kit (65cc) burnt out my headlight and taillights on my '77 Maxi. Has Anyone else encountered this problem?

Any solutions? Thanks.

Also my moped after riding a lot sometimes just shuts off when going down a big hill... anyone encounter that?

Re: Kit burns lights out.

It's normal to blow lights on a 6v non battery bike when you kit it. These produce power based on RPMS and you are making way more of them now. switch to 12 v bulbs...

As far as it shutting off, it's over heating. Try a cooler plug. What plug are your running?

Re: Kit burns lights out.

i may be having the same problem. my friends told me to switch to a 6v led bulb, but i blew that too, either get a voltage regulator or a 12v bulb, although i haven't tried the 12vs yet. I'm running a b7hs ngk. I had a piece of paper with the colder plug model written down, but i lost it.. what's that plug again?

Re: Kit burns lights out.

B8HS, B9HS. The higher the number the cooler it is... Get a B8. I run that on my kitted bike. I also have a voltage regulater installed with 6V lights... 12v should do you though... They will just be dim at idle...

Not that I plan to kit my Puch, but the lights are awfully dim. It would be nice if someone made a kit to upgrage the Puchs 6 volt system to a higher output 12 volt system, at least the lighting coils. Peace. Jerry.

You could also read through this to see if you think that might work for yours.

Re: Kit burns lights out.

When you ride down a big hill you have to hold the engine rpms down You might be getting some soft siezures because of too high an engine speed. You could be running the risk of blowing up your engine or at least ruining you new kit.

Also, and don't be insulted by this, make sure you break it in proper. I have never kitted but I am going to soon and have been told thats HUGE. Extry oil, vary speed/rpms, etc.

My 6V running light always burning out. I'm going to replace all my lights with these and see what happens
