    • None of the above, as long as the CDI, Ignition Coil and Stator works, then it is fine, LOL,hahaha

    • It will run without a battery

    • but it will burn the bulbs

    • Not if it's got a inline rectifier

    • I don't know if he got install that, mine has a battery works fine

    • Thanks for the reply I thought the lights had their own reg/rec fed straight from the stator?

    • they had, 1 for the cdi, 1 for the headlight, 1 for the battery
