headlight bulbs on euro bikes
Posted October 09, 2001 - 06:56 AM
I recently fitted an official Yamaha euro road legal kit to my WR400. The kit came with a new headlight unit using a conventional bulb (35/35 watt).Well this sunday a stone
went through it. The yamaha dealer is looking at £50 for a new one.
My question is can I use the standard light
unit and run with the standard 60/65 watt
halogen bulb.I'll have to rig up the high beam I know. I dont have indicators fitted
just the rear stop/tail, speedo light,horn,
and the high and low beams.
In fitting the halogen bulb will it cause
anything else not to work as its using more power ???.
Any help is appreciated

My reason for this post is to ask if you might have a single part # for the crank vent tube that comes in the street legal kit. If my memory serves me correctly in an earlier post you said that it vents into the airbox with this hose.I tried to get the part# from the YAMI dealer here, and the guy gave me every excuse in the book why he could not get that part.

Someone said that it is possible to run a horn off of AC. If this is indeed possible and you don't need signals, this is probably the route to go.
ps in answer to your question, yes I think you can use the standard unit.
