looking to add the trailtech X2 to my new wr450. hid draw from the new X2 is 56 watts with the higher output setup.
What year is your bike? Most WR's only put out a very small amount of dc power to the battery to keep it charged. Doing nothing else and running off the battery will kill it. Check this Baja Designs mod for the stator http://www.bajadesig.../statormods.htm. It will send all the power to the battery and then you can run your light from there. You will still need to add either the BD or trailtech regulator rectifier into the circuit upstream of the battery. The alternative to the DIY stator mod is to buy a complete new stator from Trailtech that has been done for you. I think that stator is about $130.
Unfortunately, there is no quick way to run HID on most bikes unless they are already putting all of their power to the battery.
