Anyone know how you can get 12v from a 24v system to run the lights  ???

"Voodoo" has a small seperate 12v wiring loom running off of one of the 12v batteries to power the 12v accessories (electric horn, lights and indicators).

There is the suggestion that this could damage one of the batteries , but as long as you swop the batteries around (ie dont always use the same one to power the 12v accessories) Ive not experienced any problems as yet.

I couldn't have put it better. ::)

The small current drawn from your accessories compaired to the motor is not worth worrying about. :)

You can always give me a call. ;)
