I know a couple of guys who had their XR600's rewound. The rewound stators had two outputs. They ran one for the headlight, one for the engine & tail/brake light. Seemed to work pretty good. Only bummer was a two week turnaround without a stator.

I'll probably have my '99 WR rewound to the 130W so I can run a 55/60 head light and possibly grip heaters. A friend has grip heaters on his XR and they are a godsend.

The output is 15W on low, 25 on high. High is hot!!-only to be used when the temps drop below 50 or so. I was going to add them to my WR as well, guess I either haven't got around to it. It sounds like with the '00 120W stator, no rewinding should be req'd.
I used them several times even during the summer. I ride primarily in the early morning hours during the summer to avoid the heat (start riding my sunrise), and they do take the numbness out of your hands. I also thnk they helped with arm pump as the muslces in your hands are being warmed , thus more flexible.
My last bike was a KLR250. It had a 4 amp battery-no dimming of the headlight (100W/55W)when using grips, turn signals, and brake light.
Then I bought a battery eliminator from white bros, which saved around 7 pounds of weight, but did dim the headlight at low revs- I think the output of the stator was 140.

As soon as I tried the electric system at idle with the rewinded stator I'll post a message with the light spec and watt consuption. I have no idea where He rewinded the stator and how much watt it is going to develop.

I also own a 00 wr400 and as far as I know,to get the turning lights working properly as well as the horn, you should install a rectifier/regulator first, therefore the bike will have AC (for front &rear lights) and DC electric circuit for horn & flasher unit.
I don't know which rectifier/regulator fits best to my bike. anybody up there have any suggestions? Tks.

Baja Designs would probably be your best bet for getting a rectifier/regulator, and for clearing up any lighting or wiring questions you may have. I am currently using my bike's stock AC stator output to run the head and tail/brake lights. I have not decided yet if I am going to install turn signals. If I do, I will run them off of a separate 9.6 volt, 1420 milliamp rechargable NiMH battery (it's a remote control car battery found at Radio Shack). This battery will power a pair of turn signals for over two hours of continuous operation, which is more than enough time for any weekend of street riding. The battery could also power a horn. The battery can then simply be recharged overnight while you sleep.
As for the regulator/rectifier thing, it is my understanding that if you install one of these, you are converting the bike's entire electrical system output from AC to DC current. And it requires a soldering modification somewhere on the stator. Baja Designs can answer all your questions.
Hope this is of some help.
