6 volt globes.
« on: August 02, 2019, 03:44:44 pm »
Where does one buy these items nowadays?

I am nearing the end of my once vast stocks, and in need of quite a lot of globes, all in magnificent 6 volt.

Dankie Kobus!!

Ek wonder of n mens LED lampies kan kry vir die 6 volt goed?

Ek kyk nou rond op die internet, toe se een Amerikaner ewe; "The Yamaha DT's of the70's were all fitted with glowworms as headlight bulbs". :eek7:

Ek het al vele maal oorweeg om die XL250S na 12v om te swaai vir verskeie redes, maar verstaan te min om dit te doen.

Wat van LED met 'n boost convertertjie?

Convert is baie baie klein - en jy sal baie sterker ligte kan  uit kry vir minder amps.

Daar is oulike "conversion kits" te kry vir die DT's na 12 volt, vir so om en by R2000, dit sluit al die gloeilampe ens. uit.

Bob, hoe sou ek so iets bewerkstellig?

Ek het dit nog nie self gedoen nie - so weet nie of die bike se charging system dit sal manage nie maar as mens die amps/watts uitwerk lyk dit of dit sal kan werk.

Ek het al baie gespeel met die units maar nog nooit met 'n motorfiets se ligte nie.

Jy wire so unit (mense kry baie soorte units soos die een)

https://www.netram.co.za/1784-dc-dc-step-up-power-module-output-5v-35v.html?search_query=boost&results=18

So jou battery is nog steeds 6v jou eletrics is alles 6v soos gewoon. Jy feed die unit 6v en jy stel dan die output op se 12v (jy stel die output met 'n skroefie).

So hy stoot dan 12v uit.

Die unit wat ek gepaste het is dink ek limited tot 4amps

So jy sal net 'n LED lig kan trek wat rated is op 24watts

So as jy kan 24W LED kry sal dit kan werk met die unit - baie klein en goedkoop.

As jy meer krag nodig het sal jy 'n ander boost converter moet kry as die een - natuurlik is die limit jou bike se charging system daar is net soveel watts available jy kan nie meer watts trek as wat daar is nie maar die voltage kan jy verander

Natuurlik is die beste om die bike se stator te verander en alles te convert na 12v toe maar as dit 'n true classic is wat jy wil semi-original hou dan is dit nie altyd 'n opsie nie

Met die boost convert bly alles 100% original jy tap net in na die feed van die ligte toe.

I have some 6V30/25w P15D head light globes (Stanley) brand new in the box.
Come and collect. Also have some 12V as well

Thanks Bob, if I cannot get hold of these globes, or if they seem too expensive, I'll be forced to go the conversion way.

I can get a complete stator, flywheel, regulator and wiring to take it to 12v with electronic ignition, but Rex's speedshop wants R8000 for it before postage.

That is just crazy money.

Sometimes the stator can be left as is, in that scenario they use a half bridge rectifier (ie. only using have the available power)

If that is the case you simply switch to a full bridge rectifier if the stator output is sufficient.

So you are looking at a regulator/rectifier from a Chinese scooter or something a new battery bulbs and odds and ends.

Can be done for less than R600

If the stator needs work you can generally do it yourself for very little money.  I have wound some coils by hand it is pretty simple to do yourself.

Thanks, appreciate the help, the charging/lighting coils on these DT's are not of high output, so standard you'll struggle to get good output from them.

This is a points motorcycle, so ideally I would have liked to keep the current through the points at 6v.

I googled the DT stator.

1 coil for lights and 1 for ignition.

Rewind the lighting coil and regulator/rectifier and you should be good to go.

How does one know how to rewind it, to what values would one work?

We can make an arrangement.

I can "help" you with the coil and you can "help" me with a motor that I plan to rebuild  :P

After years and years it is time to get my TT600 running again.

Have only ever done a top end rebuild. Will be my first full bottom up rebuild so will need some advice and pointers.
