WR in YZ Disguise

My WR's headlight is nice and bright working off of A/C power only. It also allows all the D/C power to go to the battery instead of sharing with the head light. My battery is allways full of juice no matter how long I ride at night. I wired the head light with bullet connectores so I could switch the headlight to D/C power just in case I need light with a dead motor.
I use LED turn signals that draw very little battery current.
The factory LED tail light was designed and pre-wired to work as a brake light. It's super bright and draws very little current! When it's in the tail light mode it runs off of A/C current. For some reason while in brake mode it runs off of D/C current. The only lights that will come on when the bike is not running are the turn signal and brake (not tail) light.
So, the only thing that draws from the battery is on demand stuff like the horn, starter, LED signals, and LED brake light (only when brakes are applied). Never had the slightest sign of battery drain yet.

your stator for a floating ground circuit ,you only have 35 watts feeding your whole bike. stock the bike has two 35 watt coils run ac for the lights and one regulated to dc to charge the battery and run the cdi. the kit bridges the two together giving you a single 70 circuit . the way you got it wired now I would say don't ride in the dark or you'll kill the the battery.
baja designs web site does not have a listing for the stator rewiring kit ,I called them about it

the stator rewire is basically a free mod you just hook the two
coil rows together in the middle. baja charges like 6 bucks for the isolator tubing and stuff to do the job .as far as the rectifier goes just buy anybodies rectifier big enough to do the job . I also moved my rectifier under the tank on the bracket for the air injection valve . because my fork hit the bigger on in the stock location . I don't know if it was the bigger rectifier or my applied triple tree that caused it , but baja's rectifier bolted up in there like it was meant to go there.
