The lights have low intensity

Go down

The lights have low intensity

Post  CRISTIAN 1 on Fri 17 Mar - 16:09

Hy to all T owners again.

Today i've noticed that the signal lights and position/brake lights have low intensity,so they are not seen properly if the sun hit them.This situation can generate an accident from the back cars following me! Mad
Any sugestions/solutions?

Check you have good earthing points. the intensity is not that good anyway, particularly when brake light is used at same time as indicators. May need a new battery

Thank you JohnW for answer.
I thought maybe there are some new generation of 6v light bulbs for exchange.
I think the battery is from last year,it seems new.

I suppose you could fit LED bulbs (if you can source them for 6volt) most that are available in UK seem to be for 12V only. You would also need a new flasher unit for indicators. This subject has been raised before http://yamahatownmatet80.forumotion.co.uk/t499-led-indicators-for-the-t80?highlight=Indicators
Looks like Paul Goff her in the UK can supply the bulbs & flasher unit
Otherwise its just something you have to live with I am afraid.

The relay charger seems to be good,the battery is not good,it doesn't keep the voltage.After starting,the voltage is going down.Also the negative conection to the frame is a little corroded,like almoust the conectors.So,i ordered a new gel battery.
Those faults are until now.Will see after putting the new battery and cleaning all the connections. Very Happy
