i have a running NC50, with no battery or extra lights or anything (and its not clear to me that it ever had them) .. the headlight and tailing work fine, _but_, when the brakes are applied, rather than having a brighter taillight, both the headlight and taillight shut off.. doesnt kill the engine or anything though, just the lights.
is this indicative of:
- blown lights (is there another bulb in the taillight? i didnt look)
- creative wiring (given that there's no battery, and also the starter turnkey has been removed)
- points/magneto/condensor issue? the guy apparently replaced the condensor right before i got it, but perhaps he botched something
i have the schematics from the manual, but im not real well versed in electrical stuff as yet (can kinda read circuit diagrams, but not sure how to troubleshoot them)
