    I have bought Electra Amsterdam Girard 3i Madonna bike, and it was delivered disassembled with no manuals for assembling. I've managed to connect everything except the headlight, which needs to be connected to the generator? Does anyone know how to do it right?

    Is there more than one way to connect the wires? Is it an LED or "regular" light bulb?

    There are three contacts on the headlight and only two wires to connect to the generator.

    I guess it is a "regular" light bulb, but I am not sure.

    See if this works for you ...

    BTW. I'm guessing that the 3rd terminal is for a GROUND wire.

    Thank you, but I have seen that PDF. Unfortunately, my light and my generator look differently and that does not help... I'll try to get the photos to show how it looks.

    OK, problem is now solved. It was the "On/Off" switch. The light only works if it is in "Off" state...

    Thanks for the update ...

    BTW. There is probably a wire-on-terminal combination which will correct the "On/Off" reversal.
