6 volt to 12 volt wiring diagram


Post by Larry D » Thu Nov 27, 2008 2:36 am

I'm rewiring my 51 panhead which was converted to 12volt. I believe the generator has a built in regulator. My wiring harness is setup for 6volt. Does anyone have a diagram they can show me the conversion.

Larry D.,

Check out the Harley manual, you do have a copy of the "bible" don't you? :o Wiring could care less what volts run through it. It's the amps that matter, to many and the wire to small
will create heat. Is your scoot a custom or original? Either way I'd stay 12 volt. Brighter lights and bulbs easier to find. Just my 0.02 worth. :)

AMF/Ride Safe :wink:
