Winter comes early and stays late in SW Colorado. I've already completed my winter maintenance, waiting for spring.

It is the standard taillight and fender extender that comes with the Tusk Enduro lighting kit. I added a metal bracket that is the same size as the license plate just as support so the license plate does not crack. The turn signals just stick on to the fender extender. One has stayed on perfectly the other came loose and I glued it back on with Gorilla glue and have had no more issues.

Does that kit come with a hi low headlight beam switch?? And does the light on the WR work as a hi low, or do I need to buy a specific bulb, and if so what bulb do I get?

The kit comes with the hi-low switch. It also comes with another switch that I did not use (it is a kill switch looking swith like on mini bikes where you switch the engine off with no need to hold down the button). The stock headlight is a hi-low already. You just need to wire it up. The only thing I needed to buy that it did not come with (and this may only apply to CA) was a high\low beam indicator light. I got one from Radio Shack (blue LED light) that cost less than $3.00 and wired right into the high beam light wire. I needed that to pass CA light inspection. I can take pics of the handlebar set up of switches how I did mine if you want them. The one switch controls all the following - high\low beam (and off too), horn and turn signals. Nice clean look.

Here you go. The duct tape on the back of the hand guards is just there for a place to store it in case I need some on the trail. The silver tube on the top of my handlebar mounting bolts is the water proof container for storing my registration and insurance paperwork and a photocopy of my driver's license. Yes I know the vent tube from my gas cap is missing. The headlight is stock and the shroud for the headlight is painted white to match the other white plastic.

Clutch side Note the switch has the horn button on the bottom, the left - right turn signal button above that and at the top is the high\low\off light switch. This causes the kill button to be moved inwards a bit. The next thing towards the center is my GPS mount.

The hour meter is custom made and mounts to the IMS tank bolts.

smv ryder, pschiess, Dunlop 803 with a Tubliss setup. It works great everywhere with the exception of deep mud, but not much of that here, just rocks, wet rocks and bigger rocks. It holds up pretty well but I think one would go through a couple a year. Knobs do get chunked out in the rocks, but won't go back to a knobby!
I'm in the South Fork/Del Norte area, the old Boot Hill Enduro country. Lot's of good trails here. I spend some time every year up in Tayor Park, (close to you smv) only two hours north.
Revalved and resprung(6'3"/230) myself with Smart Perf, Rekluse Pro, Scotts Damper, 08 YZ exhaust with PMB end cap and spark arrestor, Guts tall/firm seat, Clarke 3.6 gal and a lot of little things a guy picks up in over 45 years of riding. :busted:

Nope REI is way above my payscale... I made it out of a 4" piece of threaded PVC with 2 PVC end caps screwed on with teflon tape and painted it silver. Total cost about $2.00 because I had the paint. Held on with duct tape but going to make a velcro strip when I get a chance as the duct tape will most likely pull off the paint.
