Default GX200 running headlights

I have a Honda GX200 and was wondering how to run two 12v lights with it. It's not a clone engine. I heard it's easier to do with the real engine and not a clone, but I just don't know where to start from.

well first you need the e-start flywheel with the matching charging coils
(some call it lighting coils.. but they're actually meant to recharge the starter battery..)
sooo with that in mind, make sure to only use very low power LEDs
depending on the coilset you get either 18W or 24W total power... better stay below!
