changing 1975 xl175 wiring to not require battery to run

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to the forum. So....if I am posting in the wrong place please redirect me.

Just bought a 1975 Honda xl175.  I plan to use it when hunting in Idaho.  But.....typically no cell reception and miles from anywhere.   I don't like the idea that it won't run without a fully charged battery.  The ignition system and lights run direct from the 6v battery.  They changed this for the xl175 in 76 to 78 model years .   I  want to modify the current setup to that later system that doesn't run directly from the battery.

I have found wiring diagrams on line (not that i fully understand anything electrical).  

Is there anyone out there that has made this upgrade who can advise me.  Thanks.
