 Wotcha.

As with most things - the simpler the better.

Here's a simple 12 volt, negative earth, wiring diagram.

 

Should you wish to add indicators  . . . .

I have followed these 2 diagrams to the letter twice and they work perfectly clap. Thanks Gary.thank-youthanks_gif

The RR I believe is attached to earth when you attach it to the frame and mine is earthed by the by the 4th wire (think green).

Wotcha.

Ah yes - it does look like the unit itself is earthed.  It's the negative wire from the R/R that should be earthed ( or positive if you want positive earth )

I'll finish my cuppa and alter the drawing to make it a bit more clear.

Great diagram Lone Wolf,

Can I use my generic rectifier with this diagram ( the generic eBay one ) also am I right in thinking yours is the bike fitted with toggle and ignition switch  fitted to the Headlamp shell? If so could you point me in the right direction for purchasing a suitable toggle switch 😁

Wotcha.

This diagram is showing a regulator/rectifier - the key word being REGULATOR.   A normal stand alone rectifier will put out well over 20 volts, hence the regulator part which is needed to keep a steady 12 volt supply.

I use a company called Vehicle Wiring Products for most of my components - although the toggle switch I used was one salvaged from work, and the ignition switch was from the local bike shop - cost me about £12 if I remember correctly.

Cheers,

Lone Wolf I'll look into a regular too then, I'm quite happy with the 6 volt system i just don't like the original switches and mass of wiring in the headlamp shell and the bonus of a key.
