  1. honda ghx50
    this may sound dumb but i was makeing my own killswitch useing and old light switch got that to work but thought hey this gives me and idea i put a peice
    wire on the cdi to the side of a light and then put the base to the frame of my bike before it killed the engine the bulb did light up gona hunt around for a smaller bulb and see if that works then i could power one of lil lights that are meant to run of the whell has anyone else done this heres some questions

    1. whats the power output of the four stroke
    2.should i ground to engine or the frame 6 volts or 12volts

    forgot to add it was a old truck light bulb

    just tested a litle 14v 3.4w light from the truck (spare) useing the cable i conected off of the cdi lit up fine so think i can power one of the liltle genertor light kits still hopeing to find out the power output im looking at here

    will add as i figure it out

    Try a 12V LED light, I have a red taillight on my Titan, it is always on when the motor is running. I have not tried a brighter white light for a headlight, I am not sure what the limit is for how many LED lights the motor can handle.
