Of course, anything is possible, esp. if money is no pbject.

I am interested in improving the lighting on my 02 WR 426. I have gotten conflicting stories about wattage out put. What will the stator put out and how much light can I safely run? I would like to install a Baja Design Dual 8" set up.
The output of your stator is 120 watts (I've seen 125 listed in some places). I'm sure you can safely get away with an 80 watt bulb. Any higher and you might start having heat related issues with the stock headlight.
You cannot run Dual HID or H4's, even with a modded stator on a WR. Additionally this is not a jetting question.
Apparently you can. BD sells a compact charging system that allows you run a HID on an AC only bike with a stong enough stator (which the 02 WR has). For a cheaper alternative, you can just run the BD halogen 8". The 8" with an 80 watt halogen bulb should give you a tremendous improvement.

Scott (www.overthebarsgang.com) runs an 8 inch HID with two batteries, but no bike stator (a total loss system). He uses two batteries to ignite then disconnects one and runs the light off the other. I think he gets about an hour of light time.
