Blowing Bulbs w/ New Kit, Backfiring?

This might be Repair Forum sort of stuff, but since I have only had these problems since I put at 70cc K-Star on my bike I came here first.

I'll do the Set-Up then the problems:

'79 Maxi Frame

'80 Magnum Forks

(mid)'80s Puch Astro-Daimler E-50

70cc K-Star

Techno Boss

Hardwired (No Tail/Brake Lights - Both are grounded)

15mm Bing (until Treats gets more 19s back) - #76 Jet

Un-Tuned Clutch

Alright, now onto the symptoms:

_Backfiring_

When first assembled I did full advanced timing and spark plug box for my point gap. At WOT the bike would very loudly and obviously backfire, so I retarded the timing an 1/8 turn ... Same ... 1/4 turn ... same ... So I have 1/2 retarded my timing at this point and I am still backfiring at WOT.

This could be related to my condenser aswell, correct? Is there any easy way to test if that is failing...

_Blowing Headlamps_

I have read before that this is pretty common, with the high RPMs you're generating you will start blowing bulbs. Mine start popping at about 1/2 Throttle. 6v or 12v doesn't matter. How do you go about adding resistance to the bulb / wiring?
