    i have an 80cc king motor that i have been riding for over a year now.

    with winter approaching and the days getting shorter, i'd like to
    add some real lights to the bike. I currently use a blinking led
    head light and red blinking led taillight. these are great for making
    me more visible, but they do very little at lighting the road ahead of
    me. Some of the roads i scoot on have little or no streetlights.

    i tried to wire a headlight to the lighting coil wire that is provided, but
    that killed the motor.
    i'd rather not carry a battery that i need to recharge.

    my question is...
    is there any way to add a real lighting coil to the motor? I'd
    love to run a 35 watt halogen headlight. and a simple tailight
    that i can turn on after the sun has set.
