I can't get my brake light to get bright. I had to replace everything behind the lens cover because there was nothing in there when I got it. Its a 1980 Puch newport. someone on here said it was a 6V system so I got a 6V bulb and the only socket assembly that it would fit in (for a car brakelight). everything works, but it doesn't get very bright. it would be ok at night but you can't see it during the day. Also the light takes a second to get to full brightness when you squeeze the brake lever- it gradually gets brighter but still not bright enough.
anyone have any ideas?
