Default Ac/dc

Does anyone know of the accessory wire on a liquid hawk is ac or dc? If not dc, where would be the best place to tap in for dc power?
Thanks

Poke it with a multimeter and find out?

AC voltage won't read much on DC. On AC, it'll probably swing up/down with the throttle.

DC will probably come from the volt.reg, so you'll see a fairly steady 12-13v on it. Shouldn't get much AC voltage on a meter there (What you measure there is ripple on the regulator).

If it is AC, you can probably find a cheap dirt bike regulator, use that to convert it over if you can't get DC in there easily.

I believe they are dc. Try a multi tester to make sure.

The single yellow wire is ac. Not sure where you would pull DC power. Darryl from cyclops adventuresports might be someone that could help. He had built custom led light sources for the hawk but I think he added a battery and rectifier.
