In the mood of waste not want not I’ve got a single switch wipac headlight unit (very like the Bushman Pastoral one) which I think will fit better on my mongrel than the one currently fitted. The electrics on the bike are anything but standard, they are 6v but using the full output of the generator through a reg/rec to charge a battery and the thence to a remote coil ignition. I currently have two switches fitted but the ‘new’ headlight has only one. I don’t want to drill the headlight to fit a larger switch so I’m left using the original Wipac light switch.
My question is ... is there any reason not to use the standard wipac switch as a simple three position switch to control both ignition and lights? So the switch would be off in its far left position (L or E) ignition would be using contacts 1&2 so that it is off at far left and on at both other positions. Lights would be controlled using contacts 4&5 so off at far left and middle position, on at far right (H or I). Horn and brake light would be permanently live, direct from battery.
So would/should it work?
