I know there has to have been about 1000 posts of this but I have a few questions. I am trying to put a light on my 01 yz426 so i can ride at night and maybe make it street legal. I have heard that the wr stator and flywheel will put out about 80 watts. ebay is pretty shorthanded on the wr stators right now so im looking at other options. What year wr (or yz if they make a higher watt stator) will work with the 426? Will the 450 stators and flywheel work with minimal wire modifications? I want to run a 55 watt bulb up front for now and a led tailight (possibly blinkers in the future). What wattage stator can I get away with?
Thanks

Your only option is the WR stator and flywheel.

Will it be easier (or more cost effective) to modify the stock wiring harness or just go with the WR wiring? Also, does it have to be an 01 WR stator, flywheel, and wiring that I have to use for my bike? Can I use a WR450 wiring and stator/flywheel?

No, definitely not.

My buddy and I put the 01 WR426F flywheel, stator, CDI box, and an aftermarket switch, wiring harness and regulator on his 01 YZ426F and it works great. He runs a DOT headlight with hi/low beam and uses a WR type tail light with a light for his license plate without any issues.
