Any of you blokes in the electric business know if 12v led stop tail globes will work on 6v, trying to get one for a 6v trailbike .

Can't think why they wouldn't work in a 6v system. However, I have bought a few LED stop/tail bulbs for my GT as I was fed up with it blowing conventional bulbs, all of them didn't have much difference in brightness between tail and stop. They all came from ebay and weren't E marked. I eventually fitted an LED lightboard which is much better.

I too have fitted led bulbs to both my bikes and so far so good. I have idea if the stop light is brighter than the tail lamp though I guess I will find out when I take it for it's next Mot. But I am wondering about these led light boards mentioned above, could someone kindly enlighten me?

I got my code wrong for the pic, well done Adrian. Now how often do I screw up?

This forum only lets you post pictures using the HTML code, **not** the IMG code you normally use for forum postings. Hopefully once our hosts have finished updating the web site this little feature will have been addressed.

I have to say I get very annoyed with PhotoBucket as well as TinyPics and their pop-up adverts. I have recently started using and so far it's pretty good. For some reason PhotoBucket wouldn't let me copy and paste the HTML code either, I had to work around it.

Thanks to Adrian for getting my picture to appear. Anyway, I bought an E-marked led stop/tail light and removed the board and then wired it up to an old light bulb fitting and then made it fit the RE light unit. No more blown bulbs and an adequate difference in brightness between tail and stop.

If you want to dim an LED then you could always try a resistor in series with the lamp. The value would vary according to the voltage drop required and the current draw of the LED Cluster. Also bear in mind the power rating (wattage) of the resistor, It could be a significant factor. Use good old Ohms law to work out the values needed. Volts = Amps x resistance and Watts = Amps x Volts. Good to see you like the LED solutions, I'm tempted but so far the vibes havent killed the filament bulb. By the way Halfords seem to stock a full range of LED replacement bulbs (at a price). Andy.
