Hobbit lighting issues

Hey everyone. I got this 81 pa50ii, completely original, hasn't ran in yyyyyears, but appears they drained the tank before letting it sit. It was missing the battery, I installed the little jumper wire, threw some gas in it and pedaled my ass off and it runs!!! My problem is that it blew the headlight taillight and hi beam indicator within less than a minute of running. I think in mb5, so am I wrong in assuming that without a battery, the ac ripples overload and blow the bulbs? Is there an oem voltage regulator, diode, or something like that, that I could check?

Thanks everyone

You are correct in that without the battery it'll blow every bulb on the bike.

Thanks nick! I'll see what I can find on the net. The first two places I asked for a xt6n-2a-unv or equivalent are out of stock, back order, so on n so forth. No diode or voltage regulator thingy that you know of?

Re: Hobbit lighting issues

I should have all oem lights .including sealed beam headlight. Pm me. I will sell for treats prices if they are out of stock. I paid retail for them.

There's a rectifier which cuts the AC into DC. The battery is the regulator
