Hey everybody,

Just wanted to share with you guys that the Baja Designs Squadron LED light is now plug and play with the Yamaha WR450 by using an H4 connector. If you guys have any questions please feel free to call me or PM me.

Thanks,

Is it available in a blue shell? Does it plug-n-play with 07-011 bikes?

Hey 123BigcoopDawg576,

The Baja Designs polisport Squadron shell does come in blue,http://www.bajadesig...otorcycle-Light it is not plug and play with the 07-11 bikes, but if you wanted it to work on the older models you would need to get the Squadron, a regulator/rectifier,http://www.bajadesig...fier-dc-unwired a wiring harness,http://www.bajadesig...e-8tecatediablo and you would need to have the ground floated on your stator. If you have anymore questions please feel free to PM me or give me a call.

Thanks,

Now that is what the Yamaha should have come with in the first place!!! Looks much better than that fugly stock light.
I know you told CoopDawg to call or PM with anymore questions but I think there are alot of us out there that are interested. I myself am familiar with setting up an '07 with an HID. What I would like to know are what the differences in the electrical system between the previous generation and the new bikes. Does the new Yamaha run the stock headlight off of DC? It seems to me that for the new Squadran to work as "Plug and Play" the stock light would also be DC powered rather than AC as on the previous model. You also mentioned the use off the H4 connector, can you explain the purpose? Great job on the new light. Just looking to see what Yamaha did to the new bikes that we don't hear much about.

Hi dustdogg,

The 2012 WR450 uses a three phase stator and has a complete DC charging system, the older models run a AC/DC split charging system. Yes, Yamaha does run the stock headlight in DC which is why you would only have to purchase the Baja Designs Squadron for the 2012 WR450. The reason we use an H4 connector is because Yamaha uses one on the back of the stock headlight.

Thanks,
BD

Wow, that is good to hear, thanks for the response. I know that LED's are the future, just wondering if the new WR will power an HID stock? Does the bike need to be running or does it run off of the battery? Wouldn't it be great if all you had to do is mount up your light of choice and ride?

Yeah that would be awesome. :cry: The WR450 will power an HID stock, also the light would run off of the battery. If you have anymore questions feel free to PM me or call me.
