I have a few things,I need help and advice with. Had a DRZ400 and loved it. Wanted something a little lighter and with more power.
1. I will be picking up a 07 wr 450 next week. I'm putting Vapor gauges and a cooling fan on and wondered if I needed to do the BD stator/rectifier kit to handle the extra current draw from the fan? The fan will be wired directly to the battery with a fuse and manual switch. It will only be on intermittently when I'm in tight single track stuff.
2. Headlight. Not sure how much better/brighter the 07-11 headlight is over the 03-06 (or is it the same just shaped different?) but what bulb do you recommend to make it brighter if needed? Don't really want to go HID. I believe switching to a brighter light will require the BD stator/rectifier kit. correct me if I'm wrong.
3. If I need to, should I send my stator to BD and have the ground floated and buy their rectifier, of just buy the BD kit? I ride 100% Baja. I've been twice to Cabo and back all dirt and many trips to Mikes and Coyote Cal's. Don't want to get stranded out in the middle of nowhere.
