    CBF 125 Headlight Circuit Modification

    Nothing wrong with that, Diederik. Don't be put off by the CBF HID conversion, though. It's really quite a simple procedure, if a little awkward at times. Good luck with whichever bike you decide to buy.

    CBF 125 Headlight Circuit Modification

    It's a red/white wire, Diederik, not red, and looks to me to be part of the battery charging system. Assuming this to be the case, it would probably destroy an HID lighting system in next to no time.In terms of your comment regarding the yellow wire, the diagrams I have posted illustrate a modification which affects only the headlight and sidelight. Connecting a DC supply to the yellow wire just above the reg/rec would affect several other systems - the tail and brake lights, for example, as well as the speedo illumination, fuel gauge illumination, fuel gauge and tacho illumination. All well and good if the intention had been to convert these elements to LED, but it wasn't. As stated in the main text above, my aim was to reduce as far as possible the drain on the battery.Anyway, the mod...see more »It's a red/white wire, Diederik, not red, and looks to me to be part of the battery charging system.

It has been tried and tested and has given no problems whatsoever. If you're intending to try it yourself, feel free to post again should you require help or advice.

    The regulator/rectifier generates unsmoothed DC, Diederik, which is incompatible with an HID lighting system - hence the need to tap power from the battery circuit.
