[title] Remove the 6V parts
[* icon_note] The 12V system is quite a bit simpler than the Wipac system, as there's no longer a need to switch the alternator output with the headlight. It's probably easier to refer to the differences in the wiring diagram pictures to see what needs to be removed...
[* icon_note] The traditional conversion uses a single phase (two wire) regulator by joining the orange & light green wires. My diagram shows a 3-phase (three wire) regulator connected to the three alternator wires, which will also work just fine.
[* black] Disconnect and remove the 6V battery. Note the brown wire that went to the negative terminal; we'll be connecting the 12V battery positive terminal to it later (via a 10A fuse).
[* black] Disconnect and remove the rectifier, noting the brown wire that went to the rectifier negative terminal (you'll be connecting the 12V regulator to this wire later...)
[* black] Remove the orange, light green and white wires, as well as the resistance wire, from the main loom
[* black] Remove the 6V ignition coil
[* black] Remove the headlamp bulb, sidelight bulb, stop/tail bulb (and any other 6V bulbs)
