I have a Sprint and SS180 (w/o battery) originally restored (6 volts) and have a general bulb problem. On longer rides they tend to burn out and once one burns, they all do. It’s not a problem to replace them, takes only about 5 minutes but besides burning money out of my pocket it makes me mad and sometimes unsafe. On VWD in Zell Am See, on the way down from Grossglockner there was this dark, wet and narrow tunnel. Since it was a day I didn’t notice that my bulbs burned out. I’ve entered the tunnel pretty fast and almost crashed into the damn wall.
I’ve asked around if this is happening to others and it turns out it does. Since this wasn’t happening to my father and others that have driven these 6V Vespas when they were brand new, I’ve came to conclusion that the 6V bulbs we can buy on the market now are generally bullshit quality.
So, since I like having them on 6V and have no intention to convert them to 12V, does any of you know if there is a 6V voltage regulator on the market, how do I install it and will it help? I’ve heard that old Tomos and Jawa mopeds have had this regulator but I can’t find it. Anyone? Thanks
