Does anyone know or tried a Lead-dog helmet light connected to the YZ (08) electrical system? I believe it draws 35 watts and requires 12volts.

The YZ/YZF electrical system will not support any sort of added electrical device at all without using an aftermarket stator system.

that's what I thought... thanks! Hey, do you know if the IMS 3.1 tank fits with any of the radiator brace kits?

Looking at mine, it should, but I don't know for certain.

I know from first hand experience that the Devol and the Rooster (now out of business) rad guards work with the IMS tank. I think they all do....

Gray - one very minor exception to your rule - you can run a trail tech vapor off the stock electrical system - it only uses a fraction of a watt. But a light or fan - as you say - no way!

if you want a light, look into cyclops helmet lights. they're bright enough to be used alone. and baja designs and a company called drc make battery powered headlights with their own self contained lights.

For sure, I use the Cyclops Solstice MR-16 HID helmet light and you can damn near run full race pace with it at night. Also, it's important to note that Cyclops is a huge supporter of offroad events and Daryl is one of those guys that will go the extra mile to make sure that you are set up correctly and will stand behind his products. He is 'off road rider' here on TT
