light up my YZ426

9 posts in this topic

Can I put the stator from a WR 426 in my yz 426, all I need to do is run 1 headlight for one weekend trip. I don't want to go by the baja kit for $500 and get a bunch of parts I don't need. If anyone knows if this will work, or another cheap method of lighting up my bike for this one trip I'd be stoked

You could do what we do in Alabama, duck tape and a flashlight. :D

well i'd be lyin if that thought didn't cross my mind. I was also thinking about those lights that mountain bikers put on the handlebars. That or parting out my makita flashlight and mounting it to my helmet , like the miners used to do.The kits for the helmut lights in Rocky Mountain are $400 bucks.

Seriously, there are some decent helmet mounted lights out there. For just one ride, it might not be a bad idea. If your bike dies out there, you still have light. :D

Hold your hand on top of your head so it doesn't fly over. It was a joke.

Actually guys, those cheap Wal-Mart 6v square flashlights work the best. The batts are cheap, and since they are square, they Duct Tape easy to the front fender. I have done this numerous times at the dunes. I also strap an extra batt with the flashlight, and have also used smaller ones in conjunction on top of my helmet. ..
