So my question is... is there any kind of "tickler" available to juice up the current coming from the coil that would give me a brighter light at the lower r.p.m. range? If not... what can I do to get the desired light?
To make matters worse, I rode with a friend who has a yamaha 250 trials bike and his head light almost set the woods on fire at all r.p.m. ranges. What makes his light so much brighter then mine?
In closing... HELP!

The 98 WR400 has an 80 watt lighting coil and will suffer from headlight diming at idle speeds if the battery isn't at full charge.
With the 80 watt coil the battery would charge unless the bike was revved to the moon.
You need more watts if you want more light.

Ya I bought the 45w. As I found out now... It's a piece of junk.
Tell me about the 130w system you have.

The Wr setup is reworked by electrex to work w/ the yz cdi. you can buy the stator/flywheel yourself from yamaha and modify it. There is a pdf file on electrex's website explaining how to do this. It will save you like $50. I looked into it and decided to let them do it. It diddn't look like something that I wanted to do.
Its really easy to install. Just remove the stock flywheel, you will need a puller. Remove the stator and install the new one. reinstall the new flywheel. Plug in the stator to the stock wireing harness. Done.
There is a extra yellow wire that is the power coming from the stator. You will need a voltage regulator if you dont already have one on yours. The regulator has 2 wires. A yelow power wire that "t's" into the power wire from the stator and a black ground wire that you ground to the frame. I ran my ground to the coil. All the regulator does is bleeds off excess voltage to prevent you from blowing bulbs. Without the regulator you will blow your bulbs.
