i am getting confused about the electrics on a T6 1965 the I am looking to buy, and hope that some of you can enlighten me:-)
The bike has been "converted into a bonneville look alike. i.e the Nacell has been removed and a smaller US tank mounted.
Seller says it is a 6 volt bike, and here I get confused.
As far as I know the 6T in 65 had a 12 v system with a Zener under the seat.
In this case I expect the Zener would be used to regulate the voltage?
Now the Zener has been removed and I do not see any other means of voltage / charging control, and there is one 6 v battery mounted.
I believe that the 65 Bonnevilles had a 6 v system.
Looking in the spares catalog it looks like both the 12 v and 6 v systems of the year uses a RM19 stator.
can it really be the same stator in both systems?
how is the charging / voltage regulated in the two systems?
also it seems that at least the 6 v system currently on the bike can run with a disconnected battery?
What is the benefits of the seller having converted the system to 6V?
I do have Photos of the schematics , but I am not able to attach photos into this message.
Anyone who can help me understand these differences?
