Default Re: CT 100 bulb gets blown often

@ sajjt

I have done it, DIY as you suggested, but the regulator was under the seat. not near battery. Now the thing is working fine.

cost:

volt regulator Bajaj OE - Rs.192
OSRAM halogen 35w - Rs.80
brake bulb - Rs.8

No labour, since its an DIY. Thanks for all Bhpians for their suggestions and encouragement.

Battery cant suppress any excess voltage and it doesnt have any connection to the lighting circuit. Lighting coils will produce a moderate voltage at normal rpms hence no issues but once you are trying to overtake or increasing the speed, rpm increases and obviously voltage too. Normal bulb will withstand a max of 16-17v beyond that it will blow.

@rajivanoj What about your tail lamp/console lights? That should also be in the same condition by now. Replace your RR there's no much options left for you.
Hey Sajit, missed the bit that not all the lighting circuit are connected to the battery. My bad. But frying the battery, are you sure about that?

@rajivanoj, great work and good to hear that the issue is sorted!

If the RR is good there's no worry about frying the battery. Only horn, selfstarter, blinker, console or brake lamps are usually connected to battery on a AC+DC bike. Hope this clarifies
