    Default How to convert 6V to 12V

    Assalam Alaikum to all PW's
    I am planning to convert my 125(1989 point) wiring to 12V and point to ignition. I have got some know how about wiring, but not know what things I must change. Can anybody suggest me some site where i can get a complete procedure to change these things or refer any good Electrician ( Ustaad) who can perfectly convert it.

    I am planning to convert my 125(1989 point) wiring to 12V and point to ignition.
    @usman2792

    Wat do u mean by convert "point to ignition" ? do u want change ur Ingnition sytem from point to CDI as well ? i f yes then wud be requiring magnet, Magnet Plate(Which includes coils etc) CDI Unit,Rectifier & may be the Magnet side engine block for the installtion of Pulser. This type of conversion is quite common for CD 70 & CG 125 ~ u may need to spend 4~5K for this job, Regarding good mechanic in Karachi some member form Karachi can comment better.

    To convert your 6v point ignition system to 12v CDI system you will need the following:

    1. Genuine CG125 CDI unit

    2. Complete Wiring loom (I would suggest to buy a new one)

    3. Recifier

    4. Magnetic coil:

    5. 12v Flasher

    6. 12v Ignition Coil:
    How to convert 6V to 12V - ignition coil for CG125 634577873672821639 1


    Remember you are changing the whole ignition and electrical system of your bike. Either do it properly or dont do it at all. The mechanic will tell you that he can work with existing wiring loom, but I would suggest you dont go for any JUGAAR. Proper good quality wiring!
    Try to buy Genuine stuff........ most people dont take wiring seriously but your 125 can suffer with reduced acceleration and starting problem if not done correctly.

    I'am not trying to scare you.......its a fairly simple job and any good electrician can handle it easily......all I'm saying is....please dont cut corners for this job.

    For all the items I have mentioned above....you can find several tutorials online as to how to test them........ GO through them.... it will help

    It is certainly not exactly a DIY job. Good Electrician skills are required. For used complete set do check out "Ranchorline" if you are brave enuff to go there in these conditions. Otherwise.....Source new stuff from a nearby spare market, like waterpump, akbar road or Ghareebabad Market.

    I really dont know any good electrician. Kabhie waasta hee nahi para Achay auto electrician say. Electrcian kay maamlay may meri kismat kharab hai. Wesay I dont think you need a Real Ustad Electrician for this job. Most electricians know Cg125 electrics inside out.
