You should be able to keep wired the same way light wise it should change at all
Instead you will be using the battery to power all your lights and signals and not the stator of the motor just the battery so you will need to charge the battery every time you let it sit over night or before you are gonna ride so it has a full charge

That's why we tried to get you to put the stock or modded 49cc Zenoah engine, it has the same hp and everything works and it starts the engine and charges your battery. If you get a $13 12v charger, you can charge the battery, if you have a big enough battery you can run the lights for hours, the ignition powers itself. Or you would have to run a small generator off the engine. Or maybe a bicycle generator that rides on the tire.

If the crankshaft is good you could have gotten a new ported Cyld w/ a set of rings from Boosted for $60 and a new pin bearing and you would be set.

You sure there not 43cc engines. Six months ago, I got a 49cc piston port engine online. It's bore is 42.7mm not 44mm, so it not quite 49cc, don't know if the stroke is different, but I put a Boosted306 cylinder on it. The new heads have 4 intake bolts and the exhaust studs are 8mm instead of 6mm.

Howdy!

I'm new here and can't post a new thread so I thought I'd add to this one.

I installed a CAG motor on my bicycle and would like to be able to charge a headlight. I don't have a typical garage so I can't charge a battery easily overnight.

I'm considering using the wire coming from the coil to trickle charge a 12v battery. Then, I could use the power from the battery to run the light during the evening. If I can't do this, what type of small-engine generator should I look for?

Thanks,
techbiker

I hate to break your bubble but that coil put out thousands of volts and even if you could use electronics to lower the voltage, it would probably rob power from a Chinese coil that is already trouble. I would look for a bicycle generator the runs off your tire and runs your lights.

Run battery operated LEDs with rechargeable batteries that you can recharge in your room............Easiest and cheapest way.

Pedal bicycles will never travel as fast as a small cag so therfore those small bike light generators wont be able to keep up with any motorized cag wheel that revs more harder over a normal pedal bicycle wheel revolutions with larger wheels and will either overload and burn out the unit or not be able to spin after 15-20 mph aswell as shred the tires up................Good Luck
