Singles / 1969 BSA Starfire Electrics
« on: 24 July, 2017, 14:10:16 »
Hi, All,

I've only just joined the Forum, having recently bought a 1969 Starfire (the one I lusted after when I started riding, also in 1969. My bike then was a 1967 Starfire and I wanted one with a TLS front). My question concerns the electrics....

I'm rewiring the bike, adding indicators and rerouting the electrics through the ignition switch, so that the headlight switch only works when the ignition is ON. A new LUCAS replacement two-position switch has a current-carrying capability of 17.5A, and the alternator output of a new LUCAS replacement is 120W (so, 10A at 12V). I'm assuming an old alternator will not be more than 120W, but what about an old ignition switch? A new switch is not expensive so should I just replace it, to be on the safe side? Also, can anyone see any problems with my plans?
