New WR owner. Help with lighting.
Posted June 17, 2004 - 07:27 PM
I just picked up a 1999 WR400F. Was in great shape with only a few scratches. I am using it mostly as a comute bike, about 40 miles a day on the freeway. Weekends it will see a little dirt.
My question: It came with a Baja Designs DS kit already installed. The turn signals were replaced with low profile signals, which are great. The previous owner removed the battery from the system, which affects the lights when you idle or let off the gas. Nasty while waiting at a red light at night... Anyone know how to put a battery into the system? Something that will keep the lights going and also allow me to add a second head light, something like the new diamond lights from BD? I'm not sure if the NiCad type will do enough. A side question about the NiCad... Do they recharge while riding???
Thanks for any help. This forum is great! I read a bunch about the WR before I picked it up.

Either by a electrolytic capacitor 40VDC or so >3,000 mfd. Or put a battery in the system. A small 12v wet battery will work the best. The BD wiring has a connectors for either a battery or a capacitor. You need to use one or the other.
