John, that was 50-60 years ago, you just can't do that now. Non-members reading this will think we are a bunch of cowboys, when clearly the Wild West is confined to a very small area of Cambridge!

OK, we need a full lighting set, but how much use will it get? Would a full LED set-up (6 +10 watt head and 2 watt rear) need much of a battery to provide enough lighting for scrutineering purposes at any major Enduro event? I may well experiment with such a set-up.

I ran a Makita 7.2 volt battery in the toolbox, with two wires up to the headlight.
1 original coil ran the brake light, the battery ran the back light and Hi/Lo headlight, toggle switch on headlight.
Gave me 15 mins of light before it ran out. It go very hot because of the quick discharge.
Only used it if caught out as it became dark, on my way home from work, during winter months.
No problems with MOT (AUS) always comment on nice bright lights
