Glad to see there is such an awesome forum for help and community.
I recently purchased a 2000 WR400F. I live in Indianapolis, IN and would like to make it street legal (if I can get a title for it). BMV told me since it never had a title -being an offroad vehicle before 2005- I could never get one. Previous owner says it was never titled and he has no cert of origin. I have since gotten an application for title online and sent a certified letter to old owner requesting one. The letter has come back unclaimed (since he has no title anyway). I will be sending in the application with my unclaimed certified letter requesting the title from him, inspection form, notarized cert of ownership and odometer stuff,etc. I am not sure if this will get me title or not. Either way, I want to add lighting and street tires.
I have researched the forums and saw where people bought rectifiers and then hooked up a camcorder battery in the airbox to power lights, kits, etc.
As I have seen demonstrated, I would like to take one wire off the stator and run it to a rectifier so I have lighting options. I have an old "SUN reg/rectifier/CDI" Model #10-408 from Rick's Motorsport Electrics that I bought for an 86 Radian and never used.
Would I be able to use this to replace the regulator that is currently near my triple tree? It has 7 wires ( 3 white, a black, a red, a green and a brown- and a plug). I know the bike already has a CDI unit, is this even feasible or should I just go buy a regulator/rectifier elsewhere? No one around my group of friends seems to know anything about wiring bikes.
If I can use it, how would I hook it up?
