2001 WR426 tusk enduro kit issue
Posted May 23, 2014 - 12:13 PM
Installing a new tusk dual sport kit on an 01 WR426 and I'm coming across a problem. My OE headlight runs off the stator I believe as A/C current. Being that I'm making it street legal as well I need to have low and high beam. Question is, can I get a high beam output on my OE light with A/C current or do I need to switch it to D/C output. Thanks ahead for any advice

The OE light has a high and low but the bike doesn't come with a switch. The connector to the headlight only has 2 wires, only the low is working. You'll have to get a high low switch and a headlight connector, they're cheap at auto parts stores. And do the wiring. You don't need DC to run a headlight or tail light. But I've never found a way to make a horn work well on AC and finally converted mine to an all DC system with a small lithium battery.

I'm considering morphing my '04 CR125 into a street legal supermoto. I can't find a higher output stator for my bike so I'm thinking of taking the LED rout for lights with even maybe a small battery. (I won't really ride it much at night anyways) Do I just need to install a universal regulator and a universal rectifier or universal regulator/rectifier unit to get DC power to run LEDs? Any flaws or concerns I probably overlooked?
