It's a 1995 Honda XR600R dirt bike that came with a 12 volt lighting coil, headlight and tail light.

Here is the original schematic.

Here is the asbuilts schematic. (CA street plate)

The battery is needed to meet a DMV code that requires a tail light to still work for 10 minutes without the headlight or engine running. But the OEM stator would need to be rewound before it could do anything like re-charge that battery.

So where does Lithium come from?

Have you ever watched 'How it's Made' or 'How do they do That' type shows on cable TV channels like Discovery or Science?
I do, all the time, and today's show was about Lithium for LiIon Batteries.

Did you know one of best Lith mines in the US is just a few hundred miles North of me outside of Reno Nevada?

'First Liberty Power Corp. holds the rights to an approximately 8000 acre property located in proximity to the Lithium brine rich, Clayton Valley, Nevada. The Clayton Valley Lithium deposits has been known and even tapped on for decades. The Chemtall Lithium Silver Peak facility, the largest Lithium brine production facility in the U.S, was opened in 1967 and has been producing lithium carbonate from brines ever since.'


Yep, Silver Creek Nevada it seems is a gold mine of Lithium and it is valuable enough to even be sold as a commodity.



I know, like I ever have cash to invest, but it is related to the topic and found it kind of cool.
