I'm looking to add a light system to take this bitch out at night! I've been looking at the pros and cons of spot vs flood lights. While there are lights that do both, what do you guys think would be the most effective?

I suggest floodlight.
Who cares whats 6 blocks away, I need to clearly see whats in the immediate area.
Helps with dashcam also.

You can get cheap light bars off amazon that have both close and far beams. I put a shit ton of lights on my Polaris Razor for when I go down to Mexico. I can light up the whole fucking city it’s so bright.
You could do like a 18” light rail down the front and the way they build them is the close beams are in the center and the flood are on both ends.
The new LED light bars are incredible. Would be 12v so you need to figure that one out.

I actually found lights that can operate up to 60 volts if necessary, that way you don't need to do the voltage downgrade

Most of the quality lighting your going youre find out there is going to be designed around 12v systems since thats what cars and motorcycles use. Remember that instead of messing around with stepping voltage down to 12v from your original battery pack, you can always just add an extra battery pack of 3 or 4 18650 batteries in series and use this as your power source for lights/horn etc. I found that the Bird brain gps box that many scooters have mounted on top of the stem worked real well for this purpose. I glued two of those boxes together on my red scooter to make a big 12v battery box for all my accessories. It worked out well for me, looks good, is super easy to add new 12v accessories, and I can replace the batteries when they get weak. Best of all, it doesnt draw power from my scooter battery and decrease my range. Or you could even stuff the batteries in the neck and just stack em on top of each other in a small tube or something. You can buy a pre-made battery holder or just solder wire to the batteries to make your pack. Just dont get em too hot if you solder. You need to work quick.

So I had to return the small lights, but I ordered a second combo light bar. Unlike some people I ball hard with a 36v zero battery and I installed a switch. She's coming along smoothly, I'll show more as I go along on a new thread
