I just got a 1983 Honda Hobbit PA50-II. It had burned out headlight filaments, burned out speedo light, missing tail light bulb, dead battery. Today I replaced the battery and fired it up. I put a meter on the headlight wires and it's reading 8.5 volts, same at the tail/brake light socket. Am I going to fry bulbs when I put them in? Will I fry my new battery running it in this system?
What's my problem?
