xl 500s 12volt

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have read previous posts on the conversion from 6v - 12v on an xl500s to be simple I cannot find the posts. Can anyone give me some information on doing this, I believe it was replacing the regulator or something along those lines.

( If I remember correctly)

Regards Rod.:bonk:

i did the same thing on the 79 yamaha XT500.

$15 12v regulator & 20A circuit breaker.

no battery nor rectifier, its a 12VAC lighting system.

on the yamaha, magneto has 1 lead for lights & 1 lead for charging.

i used the lights lead only. 12v LED taillight & 12v HALOGEN headlight, woowee now i can see better than with my 90's DRs. only drawback is dim lighting at idle.
