Bulb choices for Baja Designs kit

8 posts in this topic

I definitely need more light from my Baja Designs kit for night rides. I am rewinding my stator soon. Will this be enough? What type of bulb would be a replacement to match the higher stator output?

Thanks for the replies.

I dont know what sort of bulb you use with that kit, but I replaced my halogen H-4, with a Sylvania Silver Star ... its a PIAA -type bulb, supposedly puts out double the brightness, with no increase in wattage draw ... I got mine at WalMart for about $35, its held up through numerous crashes, and is a LOT brighter than stock halogen ... gonna put them in my new car next ... :banghead:

If you have a glass lens you can go to 100 watt bulbs - more than enough for good night riding. Plastic cant take anything past 55watts--even that sometimes gets a little bit melted...rewound stators typically put out enough to run the bike and the bigger light and still have some left over for handwarmers or GPS or whatever...

Check out rickystator.com. Their dual headlight setup is one-third of the cost of Baja Designs. If you're having your stator rewound to put out 200 watts, this would be the way to go.

Check out PIAA 's website for their H4 bulbs. I have use the SuperWhite and currently run the 135W Super Plasma. They both put out plenty of light.

are the rickystator lights street legal?

i'm looking at a xr650L and i would really rather have a light like those. the stock one on the model i'm getting just doesn't excite me...
