Yea the coil is ac so ya gotta change it to dc with a ac dc relay then use a voltage reg and power a battery to get the lights to work properly. but it would still need a separate coil to charge the battery at a low voltage. A separate coil wouldn't rob power from the motor.
If ya look at a 6 pole stator only one coil powers the ignition and the other 5 power the accessories making 65 w
So I guess ya would need another coil Separate on the 2 stroke ac dc relay a voltage reg and battery

Yea I've seen that. There is also the mini gen system that has a reg and a battery.
It's a separate small coil that ya install and it powers a low voltage light it comes with a special battery and reg.
I don't have the link at the moment I'll look it up later- Gotta go -unless someone else gets the Mini Gen light system link for me.

It cant rob power from the motor cause it's a separate coil. But people always get it confused
The Mini Gen light system is kinda $$$

Yea that's kinda like it but the other one had a special 12v battery to power the lights that could be charged off the coil .
Their too small anyways the light wouldn't be very bright.
Better off using Rechargeable lion batteries to power lights

OK now that we got it figured out how to run a Light off the motor.
So I figure the white wire on the 2 stroke is a failure in design to even be on the motor. Unless ya use it with the kill switch.
I guess that's why Some engines and new main coils don't have a white wire. It's useless it only causes confusion.

Thanks for the input
I was just curious about the White wire and what ya all thought it might be for.
I don't even own a 2 stroke

Just a theory about the white wire was really used for.... there seems to be a 3rd wire that also happens to be white that comes out of the engine for 2 stroke mopeds and go carts with electric starts. I also think it could be for lights and stuff like that. If that is true, then the white wire is a constant wire. Constant wires are for ignition systems and accessory lights and so on.
