Hello,

I want to fit a like like the one shown below to my 2004 WR450. Ive seen them avalable from various companies but dont really know much about them. Does anybody have any good info on fitting them, the other mods the bike will need to run it? Also is there any specific kits people have used they would recomend?

Cheers

Lennie.

check out baja designs...i know when i did my dual sport i had to do a stator mod (changes the charging system to 12v)...for that light they may want you to have your stator rewound. that head light is more than possible on your bike...like i said give them a call they know their stuff.

I saved a fortune and got a helmet light for $80. Its pretty darn bright and costs a lot less. www.helmetlight.com

Does your battery remain at full charge when you run the light? Did you have to do anything to the stator? I was told this last weekend that Yamahas don't put out enough DC vs AC (or maybe reverse) power and that will make the batteries go dead eventually, unless stator is upgraded.

Mine is halogen and runs off ac, so the battery is not effected. My system is stock. If you go to the HID you need dc and therefore run off the battery. Then the stator needs to be modified. Your decision is do you want HID or can you live with halogen.
