Thanks for the great descriptive, and actionable reply! This is why the Moped Army community rocks.

So I dug around some more and isolated the issue, I was getting a solid 12v+ off the yellow when isolated entirely from the regulator but when plugged in it dropped to 6v then 2v if the light switch was turned on, something was draining it off.

Turns out I plugged the black tail light power into the ground terminal in the tail light housing and that was sucking the juice the whole time.

Lights are working great now! Thanks!! here's a pic of where I'm at on the bike, its almost complete, Li125 riverside running a 190cc top and 30mm OKO with a big box BGM clubman. Now its time to add all the pretty bits.
