12 volt conversion

I upgraded to 12 volts on my '83 a few years back. The stator went bad and I had it re-wound. Since there were several poles on the original stator that hadn't been wound I asked that they wind the extra poles as lighting. Changed the regulator and bulbs to 12 volt and I was in business. Bright headlight that doesn't flicker when idling. I did notice a very slight effect on throttle response, but eventually got used to it.
