First of all i just want to say that i've been away from this forum for awhile, its been good to get back to it.
Secondly, i'm not sure if im posting this in the right section but my wiring situation deals with LED's and a standard headlight. Either way here's whats going on.
POWER SOURCE:
I have a motocross bike im turning street legal and i need to figure out how to wire everything. I bought an after market stator kit that is designed to run the extra headlights and taillights for the bike. The stator is made by a company called E-line and how its set up is that the stator has three wires coming out of it. One i believe is a ground, and the other two put out 100 watts each of power. I'm not sure what the voltage is, all they told me is that there are two 100 watt circuits. The kit also came with a voltage regulator and stated that if i wanted to run the second 100 watt circuit that i would need another voltage regulator.
TAIL LIGHTS:
in order to get as much power as possible to the head light system i ordered a tail light that consists of approx. 15 LED's that act as a running tail light, a brake light, and a license plate light. I chose this because i knew that LED's draw little power. The problem is that i dont know what the specs are on the voltage / power required to effeiciently run the tail light. I guess i was hoping that somebody on here might have a good guess at it.
HEAD LIGHT:
The head light system is a simple hi/low beam headlight, nothing fancy. Although the only specs that i know about it is that it runs a 55 watt high beam halogen bulb, a 55 watt low beam halogen bulb, and a 5 watt incandescent side light bulb.
WHAT I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH:
using the new power from the two differant circuits created by the new stator, the tail light LED setup, the head light setup, and the voltage regulator, i want to try and put as much power to the headlights as possible without sacrificing efficiency from the tail lights. So i want to try and figure out a way to send maybe 175 watts (depending on how much power the LED's need) to the front head lights and still be able to send the rest to the back. I'm not sure if i will need anymore hardware for this, in fact im not even sure why the E-line company supplied me with the first voltage regulator to begin with.
What im confused on is this:
1. What is the voltage regulator that was supplied to me for?
2. How much power is enough to keep all the tail lights working efficiently?
3. How do i take two separate 100 watt circuits and configure them so that i have all power from one circuit and partial power from another circuit going to headlights, while the other portion of the second circuit is going to the taillights?
4.What extra hardware will i need to accomplish this?
thanks in advance.

With all that wattage, you should be calling the manufacturer for specific specs on installation and perhaps a manual! Understandably, the 100 watts should be more than sufficient to run a 55 Watt headlight without excess to the taillights. Those little LEDs are going to draw only a fraction of power, hardly noticable believe me. Now, as for the regulator. This is a critical component in your system. Located between the alternator/generator and the battery, the purpose of it is to regulate charging voltage so that the battery is not over or under charged ideally. If you did not hook this component in and say for example your bike charged at 18 volts constant, you would soon burn up the battery! It would be a good idea to try and track down some original spec data, or if the company is still there go have a chat or call and tell them what you are trying to accomplish. Any company that wants customers should go out of their way to help keep their existing clients happy!

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
