Bottom line the 80w stator output on the '98 and '99 bikes is insufficient to power the entire lighting kit AND recharge the nicad battery at the same time. Switching to the 35w headlight allows enough extra wattage to charge the battery while you're riding. If you really want to run the higher wattage bulb (55/60w), you'll need to have your stator rewound. For $130, Baja Desings can rewind your stock stator and bring it up to 130w output.

Here's what you should do. Contact Baja Designs and tell them you want to rewind your sator. This will change your 85 watt stator to a 130 watt. Next you want to order an 80/80 superbright bulb. This will replace your stock bulb and give you 110 watt light ouput, your stock is only 60! If you ever choose to do hi/lo you'll be able to get 110 watts low/135 watts high. Thats bright! The rewind is $130 and the bulb is $38. Cheap, relatively speaking, you get 110 watts, AND you can use your stock light housing!
