I got my bike today but it's a 6volt and the headlight bulb keeps burning out. Does anyone know what it would take to make it a 16v so I can run a better bulb or is there a good 6v bulb I could run. 81 suzuki 450 thanks

Only really freakin' old bike use 6volt electrics. That looks like a mid 80's Yamaha single. Nice bike, but it uses a 12volt headlight.

You might be able to get a replacement at your local auto parts store if its a sealed type headlight.

it's not the yammy single. But it darn well is a 12 v system, I'd bet. He probably needs a kill switch to make it work.

the 6 v bulb keeps burning out because you need a 12 v bulb.
