    Obviously man, u need to make it to DC, then u can think of the HID else, ur batt will loose the juice within no time.

    Come to this thread and ask ur queries, one of our friend Shree've started another dedicated DC conversion thread here.

    U can make ur queries here, so it'll be shared among everyone Feel free to ask, we r ready to share our infos.
    ok.

    i was a bit busy in office today so cant come online in day time....now i have saved all the info available on this site or any other site. collected the wiring diagrams for pulsar ( as i have lost my owners manual) , the material is 100+ pages, which i m taking printout from office and taking home (my lappie too is down)...will read in the night. and find out a solution.

    hey all listen to my theory--
    1) my pulsar have a 9 Ah battery. HID is 12V 35W, i.e. approx. 3 Amps current. so battery should last 3 hours. now in these three hours it is getting charged also, since bike is running. i think the charging current is 1.5 Amps approx. so in three hours it will have 4.5 Ah strength, that means another 1.5 hours, so total 4.5 hours it should last. this is the ideal case. in practical terms it should last approx. 4 hours. if you are using starter then may be 3 hours back up it should give. wht do u think ?

    2) since HID is connected to battery, the magneto coil supplying current to headlight earlier, is now lying idle, so we can use that coil, instead of rewinding the magneto. now HID is 12V 35W DC and earlier headlight was also 12V 35W AC , that means we need exactly the same amount of power as that of earlier bulb, which this coil easily produces. we need to connect this coil to one more RR unit (may be APE or may be same as that already in my bike) and connect the DC output of this RR unit to battery for additional charging.

    3) since HID draws 3 Amps current, we need an RR unit which delivers 3 Amps. I have checked in the manual, the current RR of my bike gives approx. 1.5 amps. so now if i use one more RR as that same of my bike. total charging current will be 3 Amps approx. which should sustain the battery quite well.

    4) can some one tell me what is the output of APE RR unit.

    5) what if we dont use light for some days, and battery gets overcharged. is there a cut-off system provided in APE RR.

    6) AFAIK any battery should be charged at a rate not exceeding 10% of its Ah value for safe charging and long life. too fast charging damages teh battery and reduces its life. now my battery is 9 Ah so 10% of 9 is 0.9 A. so the battery should be charged at 0.9 A only. bajaj guys are charging at 1.5 Amps is already pretty high. if i connect one more RR total charging current will be approx. 3.0 to 4.5 Amps which is too too high and i m damn sure no battery can sustain it, and will be ruined in few month.

    only solution is that we add a switch to the wiring and use this additional charging only when light is ON, so that battery will actually not take the charging current instead it will be directly diverted to light through battery terminals. this way actually the current for light will come directly from magneto through charging current and at low speeds stability will be provided by battery.

    what do you guys have to say?

    We have got a dedicated DC conversion thread started by Shreeni to help others who r planning to do this as all infos are scattered here, pls come to that, I've posted a detailed post for u. In future, pls use the respective thread for queries
