I came to know that I cannot use 55/60W for my bike even if I am NOT running it from battery but rather from the current coil. Correct me if I am wrong.
But can I go ahead and just fit in 40/45W Halogen running from current coil ?

On getting feedback from Sai I checked & found that in RTR the pass switch works even when engine is not running which means the high beam through pass switch is a direct connection.

@technocrat: The capacity of the RTR alternator is much higher than the old apache. also the pass switch works with a relay. hope this helps.

@jaggu. The ignition is fed with DC current in RTR. When the coils are rewound there will change in magnetic flux, hence it can retard or advance the ignition depending on the change in magnetic flux. Hope this helps

Yes I did hear the click sound of the relay.

So could you tell us how to get the Headlights & Speedo lights on DC?

Isnt' the pulser/starting coil left untouched while rewinding the coil for more lighting output? So how does it change the timing?

Even though the pulser coil is not touched. The flux definitely varies causing minute advance/retardation of the ignition timing.

@Technocrat: I would any advise not touching the current setup, leave it as it is. Else you will have redesign the wiring to convert it to DC. I would say not worth the pain.

I doubt with digital ignition there will be an issue with timing change due to coil re-winding, flux doesnt change, its dependent on magnet, rather the current and voltage can change if not done properly. Cant confirm on a RTR since i dont have first hand experience.

Like Sankar pointed out the coil for ignition is an independent one in the bikes i have seen, can someone confirm from owners manual if the charging is AC or DC?
