Roadworthy / lighting kit
« on: May 28, 2020, 03:38:25 pm »
Howzit Dogs

I'm busy with a project bike and would like to keep the electrics and wiring as simple as possible.

Does anyone know if a road worthy / light kit is available that runs off a a small rechargeable battery.

Specifically looking for indicators and hooter, but if it includes a tail light thats also ok.

Just need to get it through roadworthy.

Hoping to be steered in the right direction.

Have a lovely day
May the best of today be the worst of tomorrow.

Failing that, pop into Startline and buy the loose items - they have the lights, switches, etc., you would have to make up a harness, but apart from that.....
www.majita.co.za - we sell tools!

I used this on the XRR: http://www.drcproducts.com/elect/d45-70/index.html
Uses 6 X AA batteries.

The hooter shouldn't pass roadworthy, so if you have some power source and better hooter it would help. Mine passed with that crap beeper, but only just...

I think it needs a numberplate light as well, but you can add a LED to the taillight.

Can you still get away with that these days? I thought that in these regulated times every tiniest little thing has to be 'type approved'.  :deal:

Though I do recall when trials bikes always dodged the law with rubber squeeze bulb hooters.

The last DRC kit I fit, caused a lot of headache.  The quality is very poor.  For what he OP wants it ticks all the boxes.  Going to a bike friendly roadworthy center helps.

Buying all the parts with charged labour works out more expensive.
If you want to haul ass, you gotta mix gas.

Thanks for the lead.

Looks exactly what i envisaged.
