6Volt to 12Volt

Recommended Posts

Hello
Has anyone converted a Six Victory to 12 volts?
How is the conversion of the alternator implemented?
greeting
Ralf

I changed mine over to 12volts with electronic ignition and a fuel pump. 
changed the headlights to H4’s and put a small alternator on it. Work’s really well.

That sounds good. That's how I want to do it too.
What kind of generator did you install? and what ignition?
did you leave the original starter?

 

Das hört sich gut an. So möchte ich das auch machen.
Was für einen Generator hast du eingebaut ? und welche Zündung?
hast du den Originalen Anlasser gelassen ?

I used a small Subaru alternator and just made a bracket up of the front  of the old generator. 
I used the fast xr700 electronic ignition it’s easy to fit. 
I fitted an old bendex spring in-line with the starter power to drop it a few volts. I can take some pictures for you tomorrow if you need any. 
the engines start and run really nice with the electronic ignition.

Yes, pictures would be very good.

Did you convert the starter ?

I left the starter as 6volts. The bendix spring drops the voltage to take a bit of the load off.
