What you'll need no matter which way you go:
1. rewound stator (BD) or new stator (Trailtech). HID is only DC and the stock WR only puts a small charge of DC to the battery with the rest going AC to the light. The new or rewound stator will unify the two circuits and send it all to the battery.
2. Regulator/Rectifier. This will replace the stock AC regulator on the bike
3. Some sort of switch as the light will always be on otherwise. I like a simple toggle off the side of the light.
After that, it's happy times!
