Just re-re-re-re-read the first post and noticed (for the first time...duh) about the switch housing ground....I will check that after work and hopefully sorts out my issue...

I'd guess that you have both your AC and DC grounded somehow. When I look at the wiring diagram from the original document (figure 22) it shows the AC going into the Reg./Rect. as connected between stator white and chassis ground. So far so good since the instructions indicate this is intended to be a DC conversion WITHOUT floating the stator ground.

In order to be successful the RR output must not be grounded. Note that the diagram shows battery minus and "ground with bullet". This is meant to indicate that battery minus is the isolated ground point for the lighting. IT DOES NOT GET CONNECTED TO CHASSIS/FRAME GROUND. Check to see if your battery minus is grounded. If so remove that ground and see if it works.

Does anybody have a picture of the ground being floated? I'm in the process of installing a dual sport kit on my son's 02 200 EC. My ignition experience is limited to SEM and Motoplat and Powerdynamo ignitions which already have a floated grounds. I did float the ground on my 83 XR500 decades ago but really don't want to have to do it that way on my son's bike.

Never mind. I seen the vid on how to do it and it's just like what I had to do on my 83 XR500R. I guess it's going to be isolate the DC ground.

Question 2108 300EC LED Headlight?

Hi - I'm new to the thread and GasGas. I noticed that this conversation is quite dated, and I see no reference to more recent GasGas models.

I am interested to know if anyone out there has run an LED headlight, in place of the standard halogen lamp? I'm assuming that the 2018 EC uses an AC voltage to run the headlamp, so all "I think" I need is a rectifier and regulator to run an LED headlamp. The bike isn't plated, and I don't ride it on the road, so I only need a low beam and on / off. Any advice appreciated.

Don't assume that the 2018 XC uses AC for the headlamp. Go to gasgas.com and download the manual for your bike. Page 17 has the wiring diagram that shows the stator connected to the regulator (rectifier).

The "generador" connector shows AC output from the stator. There is no detail on the stator itself. AC power from the stator does not appear to go anywhere other than the regulator/rectifier.

The only thing we can tell is that battery minus is grounded and the starter motor is grounded. Also the yellow/green from the regulator/rectifier is grounded. The red wire from the rectifier is connected at various places on the bike.

Ro which is red appears to connect to the common terminal of the headlight switch. Thus the headlight may be DC powered. Have fun following the diagram to see if you reach the same conclusion.

Don't trust the diagram to be true unless you can measure DC voltage at the headlight.

My 15 model has DC headlight. And I use a LED lamp in winter. I presume all newer bikes also use DC for all lights.
