Hook up lights on go kart


Headlights for go kart. I have a Murray go kart which runs on a 6. How do I install headlights? I don't think that's going to fly on a Tecumseh. A lot of engines actually have a generator setup on them. In fact, even most of the generic honda clones do but not the old tecumsehs as a general rule. I did have one that did have the generator circuit on it.

Do you have any wires coming out anywhere? My old manco didn't have a generator on it. So, I put a lawn mower style battery on it and wired a 2 way switch to 2x 55w halogens, man they were bright. Then, I just recharged the battery every few weeks with a regular car battery charger. I dont see any wires sticking out. Would they be inside the engine? I saw a similar go kart with an after market lighting system that hooked up directly to the engine. The owner said his son hooked it up and couldn't give me any info.

If I cant find the wires, then I will just go with the lawn mower battery set up. Thanks for the info guys If you go with the battery idea, don't flip your buggy, otherwise battery acid will leak from it. I did that a few times. The wires would be coming out the end of the engine that faces your back seat. Only one we had with those wires on a Tecumseh had the yellow engine cover part that your pull start is attached to. Not likely that you have them though.

If you have electric start you should already have a battery. You would only be able to run about watts combined dur to a small charging system which is only for quick charge to the battery after starting. Originally Posted by BuggyMaster.

I also want to add that some 6. As posted previously use a mower battery and run the lights off the battery. My feelings exactly, would rather lister to the purr of the engine or in the case of buggies roar. Thamks for the quick repsonses; I kinda figured on running things off of a battery.

I'll have to check the purpose of that wire hanging out of the engine but I was able to a pdvf "Hook up lights on go kart" the engine manual and didn't find anythg about a generator. I hear y'all on the joys of buggyin to loud engines but thot a few tunes would be cool to have, some old throwdown stereo.

It had a couple of lights on the roll cage, but were not wired up any more, and I didn't check them out. Last edited by cuzn; at Originally Posted by metalstudman1. I have a predator 7hp small engine from Harbor Freight.

I have a few different wires sticking out of the front of the motor right behind the seat. I want to wire in a few headlights. Is there any way to do this using those existing wires or should I get a battery and charge it every so often?

I don't believe the motor you have has any charging system on it. You would Hook up lights on go kart to have a battery that will run the lights and charge it when not in use.

The battery size will be determined by the wattage of the lights. Originally Posted by staplesgokart. Find all posts by x-bird.

Hi everyone im new herebeen here one time only back in november. Onemore thing i have 22 watt light bulbs on my buggy, if i want brighter lights without messing around with stator, flywheel,etc. Thought this might be a good place for this question. My buggy sat outside for almost a year. I've beengoing through it and getting everything back in order.

I've noticed that when idling if I turn the lights on it really drops the rpm's. I don' t remember it doing this before Hook up lights on go kart it might have. Is this normal or do I need to start looking the wiring over for a slight short?? The lights don't seem dim and they don't get brighter when you rev it up.

I did not put a...

It also doesn't seem to have any drag on the power with the lights Hook up lights on go kart. Leaving ur buggy out in the elements will cause corrosions on electrical components, try storing it in a shed,garrage, or cover it real good with a tarp. First check you battery voltage, then check again with engine running and again with lights turned on. Also note the voltage at idle as well at high rpm.

Post those figures and we can tell you if its normal. Could be that your overcharging. Had no choice on leaving it out. I had to leave the state in a hurry for a job and didn't have time to tie up loose ends. At some point my parents covered it for me. Thanks Tom for the rundown. I'll need to see if I can borrow a meter from my brother and check. I'll have a look at all the connections For now I can just ride with the lights off.

The only place I have to ride at the moment is through the neighborhood so I liked having the lights on.

They're watching everything I do. I'm risking everything just telling you this. Originally Posted by zman Think about it guy's, he's in Roanoke, Va. Quiet, big brother is always watching. We might be on to something. Way to go guys.

You just blew his cover. I barely got away. I only have a few minutes to comment before they find me. You guys have it all wrong. If I had to get away for whatever reason my buggy wouldnt have been ledt behind in the weather I would have used it to get away.
