Av7 clone voltage questions

This single post is part of a larger thread. Start from the top or view this post in context.

Decided to use one of the clone av7 bottom halves with the 45mm airsal 70cc kit as a spare build for my av88. Mostly for a fun learning project as the original engine works fine now. Test run great though had to use stock head due to the extra inch or so it needs on top to line up the mounts. I’ll get around to breaking down and inspecting the cases etc but was basically too excited to wait for a little test run.

Anyway, the clone has a ‘12v’ coil that puts out about 11v AC at idle and 28v AC at speed. I guess this is a typical range and I’ll likely need to get a voltage regulator before connecting to lights etc.

But this raises a question for me: is AC voltage the norm? Do I need AC-specific bulbs/horn or will regular 12v bulbs work? I always assumed moped accessories ran on DC voltage but this has got me a bit confused now.
