Hey guys,

I have a 79' cm185t Twinstar that I am trying to convert from a 6 volt to a 12 volt system.

Can anyone give me a list of all parts I will need to upgrade?

really? I have a few 6v bikes...my only gripe is not being able to buy bulbs over the counter.
Oh, and I probably couldn't run a heated suit off of it ;)

Let's stick with the question.
Obviously bulbs, battery and starter. You may be able to keep the stator by changing the regulator unit to a 12v, not sure. If I understand correctly the 81 CM200 is 12V and the parts are interchangeable. 66Sprint knows more about this.

i have a 1980 cm200 that i kept 6 volt, i could'nt find a good enough reason to convert it. i made my own wiring harness removed everything i didnt need and bought a lithium battery and the lights are nice and bright. also it was a bit cheaper than buying all the parts to convert to 12v.
