DR350S, can I use lights, but still get rid of my battery?

Recommended Posts

I have a 92' DR350s and want to dump the battery but still be able to use the headlight and tail light, (yes, I know about laws and needing a battery for road legality).

Does the battery also function in a way to limt voltage to the lights? I tried just taking the battery out of the circuit and now I blow light bulbs when the engine is reved up.

What else can I do besides using a battery? Thanks guys.

Yep, you can use a capacitor. Try to find one with a 25 volt rating (or higher) and at least 4,700 uf. This should keep the regulator working as it should, and keep the lights working, even at low rpm's.

Keep in mind you will loose the lights as soon as the engine dies, so this mod may not be a good idea for some people. Loss of power / lights at night due to stalled engine can be dangerous.
