Gave 1 more shot at putting the CDI in- not sure what rectifier this setup needs but from what I can tell I think I'd need a battery to run the lights and the cdi will only charge said battery. The cdi wiring says red or brown for lights(also says needs rectifier) but with the stock rectifier it only puts out 1.5v. Very confusing. The ignition side of the cdi is no problem. It runs ok.
So for now keeping the points- I ride on the street and can't go without lights.
Anyone else put the cdi into a 6v(no battery) hobbit and have this problem? What part of this am I missing? Different rectifier? Add a battery? Or is this 1977 kit a piece of junk?
