1980 DT175G wiring questiom was created by Jolliroger

Hello, thanks for taking a moment to read this question.

I just bought a 1980 dt175g .
The battery was bad when I bought it so I'm running it with out one for the time being.
The bike didn't come with a headlight bulb, so when I went to install one after purchasing it, I was sad to find out the headlight doesn't seem to want to work.
Infact the horn the head light both don't work. And the tail light and indicator lights are dim.

Is this because the battery is not installed?
Any ideas what's going on?

My DT175MX 1980 has to have engine running before headlight will work, the stock 6volt battery is useles even when new so if it's low on power it will probably do very little.
