DANGER - DON'T WIRE Up Your Bike Like This Linked version!!

Be WARNED the circuit diagram is WRONG in that the Brake Light is wired via the light switch meaning during the day, if you choose to have lights off, then there is NO brake light either!

I sent him a corrected version 0n 11May202 but the web version remains incorrect at this time!

Very wrong indeed, it should be positive ground, the way Mr Lucas intended....and it seems to have some sort of starter and solenoid arrangement that has no place on a motorcycle :) ...just kidding

Acceleration is fun, but drum brakes keep life interesting.
