I’m pretty new to moped rebuilds and I talked my grandfather into giving me his old FZ that has been sitting in his garage since 1983. I used to ride this thing as a kid and I wanted to rebuild it for my son to use one day.

It has no problems running, starts second kick cold and is fun as hell to ride. I cannot for the life of me figure out why my headlights keep blowing. I bought a new battery for it two years ago, just replaced the rectifier, CDI and put in a new spark plug. I’m thinking it could be a bad connection somewhere but before i take it apart, is there anything else that causes blown headlights on FZs?
