Thread: Servicar question

    Servicar question

    Going to look at a 64 servicar next weekend. Estate knows nothing about the bike. It's been modified from stock. My number one question is the system 6v or 12v? and is there an easy way to determine that with a non invasive check.



    Bikes not running, no battery or lights installed.

    If it is a stock '64 it has to be 12V, however if it is a '64 engine in another year chassis it is anyone's guess. The voltage is marked on the generator near the two wiring posts.

    You can also check a light bulb marking.

    Checking the battery is also an alternative

    Look at the breaker: all auto-advance are 12 volt.

    If it has an electric starter it is 12V.

    Thanks for the info, going to look at it in a couple of weeks. My friend picked it up, been offered to me, we'll see if it can be got running. Not really sure I want a trike, maybe if it was a regular 2 wheeler. So it may well be for sale.

    Lots of ??'s
