If you want to run any type of HID off a wr426, you will need float the ground on the stator, install a reg/rec that converts the raw ac power from the stator to DC which (like jat said) will charge the battery and the battery will power the hid. (these mods/parts are something you can buy from baja designs)
As for the two battery pack setup, I would dis-agree...My buddies 426 runs a single 35watt hid off the baja designs battery pack with zero issues. With that said, you can expect to run the airtime-hid on the low or the high with no issue...just not hi and low at the same time.
Also, I think the focus of power output from a stator should on how many amps it puts NOT the amount of watts....reason being, is the high out put stator I have in my bike is 'rated' at 100 watts and I can idle with 2 hids on at the same time and still charge the battery...compare that to the stock stator with a floated ground that is 'rated' for 120 watts yet I couldnt get the battery to charge until 3/4 throttle...
Lastly, does jat offer an upgrade option?...i.e sell you an airtime-hid with only a low beam option and then when you are ready (buy a newer bike) upgrade the light to the hi/low option?
I think the reason behind running 2 battery packs was to be able to run both high and low together, although JAT did mention that he could not confirm this setup because the only Yamahas that he has worked with were the newer 03+ models. He did say that at idle or slow speeds that it would start to drain the battery because as we all know the stator would not be able to keep up with the draw.
I did call BD and ask them what was needed to run the Diablo and they said the light and the battery is it. I did not mention the airtime light, but is seems the only difference would be that I would need the regulator/rectifier for the airtime while the Diablo would include it if the kickstart model is chosen. Does this look like the right one? https://www.bajadesi...er, (dc) (wired
I did look at the Baja Designs, Trailtech and Ricky Stator
websites and could not find any specific information regarding the 426 stator. Everything was for 03+. I understand that the 400/426 models are getting up there in age and the lack of support for these models shows. This is why I may just hold off and make the upgrades to a newer bike. If I can make it work with just the light, battery and regulator/rectifier then I may go for it but I'm not sure I want to put in too much time, effort and $$$$$ on this bike. Don't get me wrong though, it has been a great bike. Bought new in 02' and has never given any problems, but it may be time for an upgrade. I think I would have a hard time not going with another Yamaha
:thumbsup: Thanks CoopDawg, you have been a big help. Feel free to add more info if you can:ride:
