Title: B33 Electrickery!!!!!
Post by: IanP on 25 September, 2017, 19:25:32
Having finally got the gearbox/clutch primary drive sorted and  been on a couple of test rides and been pleasantly surprised with the results of my labours I have turned my attention to the electrics . the charging side is not good.Battery appears to discharge quickly and there appears to be no charge from the dynamo . I have looked at the component parts and am awaiting  new battery and voltage regulator (electronic not mechanical).
My query is what type of wire do I use to connect the dynamo to the voltage regulator as I am sure that the domestic 3 core flex that the previous owner used is not really helping !!!!!He has used the live and neutral wires and cut the earth wire down !!!!!!
