6v to 12v Problems
Okay guys, first response here. I am a newbie and have tinkered on a 75 cb125s for the past year. It has run fairly well but never great and I am finally trying to get it strong.
Two days ago I dove into the 6v to 12v conversion and have come up with a slew of weird problems.
So far I have added: 12v LED blinkers, 12v LED headlight, 12v LED Flasher Module and a 12v battery. I have a new rectifier (from radio shack) but have yet to add it until I can figure out my current problems.
1. Blinkers dont blink - When I hit my blinkers (either left or right) all my blinkers light but do not blink. My 6v blinker confirmation does not light at all.
2. Only left blinkers blink - After I started tinkering with the blinker confirmation light in the speedometer I decided, randomly, to test the ground and touch the sides of the bulb socket to the side of the speedometer. When I do this my left blinkers work great AND my confirmation light starts working! BUT... when i try my right blinkers they work as well but headlight starts blinking as well!?!
3. Blowing my main fuse - after playing around with option 2 my fuse started blowing. Is 15amps too small a fuse for this conversion?
