My 03 450 can only handle about 60 watts of headlight. Would like to try an HID, but they are expensive. Maybe the 426/400's can handle more than 60 watts..
Went on a dual sport night ride last week. Some guys had some real trick dual LED lights on the sides of thier helmets. Strange looking. Like a scene from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

I have an '03 450. I am running an 80/100 bulb now. Who made the LED helmet lights?
Wow. I tried a 55w and 35w (90 total) which dimmed both. That was on the AC 12 volt circuit which was meant for the stock WR450 lighting. Maybe you are running on the DC 12 volt circuit. Be carefull if you are. I ran all my lights on the DC circuit and it worked well until a long night ride. After about 2 hours, the battery was drained, and the bike barely ran.
I think my AC and DC systems are working properly. Maybe not.....
Here is a link for one of the light companies.
