I need some help from folks here, please...I have two problems with my bike...I'll post them separately to keep the replies easy to follow.
It's a '72 CT70 with a Lifan 125 engine (4 speed semi-auto). We got the wiring harness from CHP and it is now 12v.
Problem is it doesn't adequately charge the battery 12v sealed lead acid). When running, the voltage measured across the battery is around 12.6 - 12.7vdc.
It was suggested to clip the main power wire and splice it such that the stator powers the lights while it's running instead of the battery...if I understood what we tried correctly.
In any case, now it's difficult to start and doesn't seem to run the way it did before this change.
If you'd rather send me a PM, that's ok too...hoping someone else has run into this and knows how to fix it. I get tired of having to charge the battery every few nights.
