Both items have free shipping so your looking at 79 bucks for two setups...sell the other setup to a friend or fellow TT'r :thumbsup:

*** Read the Ebay listings carefully as I only searched for what you needed :worthy:

123BigcoopDawg nice job on the HID setup. 2 questions;

1. Could you put a(n on/off) switch right before the ballast?

2. What type of regulator would be needed for the ebay setup you have above?

Thanks

Yes, what you would need is a switch that meets(and exceeds a little to be safe) the volt/amp/wattage of the light, you could put it anywhere running on the wire feeding electricity to the light, just make sure you switch (and wire if you added some) are of appropriate power rating. :thumbsup:

Yes, you would want to put a switch...

2. What type of regulator would be needed for the ebay setup you have above?

At a minimum, you would want to float the ground on your stock stator and then get a regulator/rectifier

Thanks for the help 123Bigcoop, I got the HID running, with a Trail Tech stator.

I ran the light through a switch, then through a 10amp fuse, then straight to the battery.

Two Questions;

1. do i need a relay?

2. is a 10amp fuse too high? Should I use a 5amp?

Thanks.

OK....NEED SOME HELP HERE. HAVE YOUR SAME BIKE, BUT I USE IT TO RUN DAKAR AND BAJA LIKE RAIDS. FOR THAT PURPOSE ITS EQUIPPED WITH A GPS, AN ELECTRICAL POWERED ROAD-BOOK HOLDER, AND TWO ICO ODOMETERS, OF COURSE ALL OF THEM POWERED FROM THE BIKES ELECTRIC SYSTEM.

ELECTRIC SETUP IS STOCK, AND IN THE LAST YEAR I HAVE HAD THE RECTIFIER REGULATOR UNIT REPLACED TWICE :thumbsup: , BECAUSE IT FAILED ; DETECTED BECAUSE OF HEADLIGHT BURNING.

NOW I`M IN THE SAME SITUATION, SO FOR YOU ELECTRIC YUNKIES :ride: IS THE QUESTION....WHAT IS NEEDED TO CHANGE: AN AFTERMARKET STATOR, A NEW STOCK RR, OR TO CHANGE BOTH...ANY BRANDS SUGGESTED?

THANKS A LOT.

with all the stuff your running the one and only stator i would recommend for you would be the trailtech. Here is my review on all of the major aftermarket stators for the wr.

You will want to replace the reg/rec as the stock one is AC only.

When you swap stators, you will be converting the bike to DC only.

You can buy the trail tech setup and it will come with the right reg/rec
