Well worth it and you can leave your stator alone!

It depends on how much money you want to spend.

I bought a new bulb (A-3603) It is a 25wt/25wt dual filament bulb. I soldered the two contacts together at the base and called it good. It has the same socket base as the stocker. I used an XR/CRF 70 engine kill switch for the bar mounted headlight on/off switch as it is a toggle type. Switch off E-bay was $8.00 a pack of bulbs was $3.00 from my local dealer.

Good Luck

Replace the stock lense with a glass one from an XR400....get it from your Honda dealer. You'll need the glass lense, and the rubber boot, then buy a 55w H3 bulb for it. BIG difference in light quality and quanity. I also switched to an LED taillight to lighten the elec. load for the headlight.
