1973 ts 125 L ........help ?

Hi I'm restoring an old suzuki ts 125 L

The thing is this the motor is out of the bike the original loom is fitted I've no battery but I've put a 6v battery charger on the loom
The indicators work neutral light as I've plugged in the mag I'm getting no feed to the front or rear lights however when I depress the foot brake I get a brake light ??
So what I wanna no is does the bike being a 6 v need to b running to get full/ dip beam 
Hope u can help 
Regards gungga :ph43r:

6v

With 6v and 1973 i would say so. My old long gone  GN400 and my present 535 lightning was/are the same.

What`s plugged in the mag? Are you talking magneto?

Warning the charger may put too much current in the loom,also the remote engine will need an earth to the frame.

I pluged in the magneto ie stator plate to c if it would get the lights on 

So basically I'm not gonna get any lights till its running ?
It only has a on / off high n low beam no sidelight etc
If I put a battery on it will that change things ?

Hi, gunga, xxx

You need the engine running to make the headlight work. John has been working on one of those for one of his old customers.

pm me if you've got any more questions and I'll ask him.

2 stroke

As a matter of interest is the 2 stroke oil mixed with the petrol in the tank or is there a seperate oil tank feeding the carb inlet?
