You can't plug n play led lights on a Puch. The lighting coils are designed for specific wattag bulbs, and the taillight coil is only excited by the correct wattage headlight bulb installed. The only way to run led lights is to get rid of your good, reliable coils and switch to a rectified and regulated lighting coil system. They are cheap and unreliable.
