Few questions

Afternoon everyone. I have two questions that I couldn't find answers to by searching. This weekend I started my build on my 91 TW. Will the headlights and turn signals all work correctly without a battery once started? Is the stator alone enough to power them? Second, if you run these motors with no muffler is it hard on them? Does it create a lean condition? THX a ton!

The headlight will be dim, turn signals may or may not work. Mine didn't. Indicator panel dim. Some find the higher rpm's of driving smooth out the electricals, I had the opposite effect. At idle lights were at their brightest. Why no battery? I got a cheap $30 battery at advanced auto smaller than stock. Works fine I just try to kick start rather than e-start.

As for the exhaust I would think very lean, but not sure, so other members will have to chime in on that.
