My Wr400FL

its already registered as a street bike. (previous owner rode it on the streets and managed to not use turn signals). :busted:

an led tail light only uses about 1 watt i think i read in one of these forums. get a 35 watt head light and and led tail light and i would think you could still have enough power to run a turn signals with an 80 watt stator.

So all you really need to do is wire up turn signals?

And the voltage regulator?

This bike already has a voltage regulator for it's lighting circuit, but it's all AC. This works fine with headlight/taillight, but I'm not sure if it will work with blinkers and it won't work with a battery.

You'll need a rectifier to convert the system to DC if you want a battery. The Baja Designs kit does this, but there are some modifications required to the lighting coil. They are not difficult, but they require some soldering. You can buy the regulator/rectifier separate and it's not too expensive ($37 I think) if that's the only part you need.

I used to have the Baja Designs install manual around here, but it seems to be lost. I'll take another look around for it.

Pablo is correct in order to charge a battery with DC current, you would need a rectifier.

In all the posts I read last night about past TT members Installing lights and batteries, not one mention was made of a rectifier. But the lighting kit they were using came with one. Had to look that up after I read pablos post.

To operate blinkers you will need a steady DC supply voltage and a flasher relay.

The type of flasher relay to use will depend on the type of turn signals you have standard bulb flashers or LED flashers. They run in price from $8 to $15.

the standard models come in 2 styles 2 pole or 3 pole.

So if I convert it to DC will i be able to run a speedometer and keep my current head light and tail light. I already ordered the regulator, and a key switch.

Correct.

headlight/tail light: yes

speedo: I don't know, what speedo are you running?

I am a little lost on the spedo question,thought those were driven off the front wheel?

What brand/model regulator did you order?

And I am not giving you a link until you tell me if the turn signals are led turn signals or standard bulb style.

I started answering questions that first night without enough information.

I want to make sure what I tell you is correct.

headlight/tail light: yes

Ah, never mind. It accepts AC/DC (my bad..)

Btw - I dont have it yet but this is what Im planning on

Yeah im sorry it was dark out then and it is now, ill go check right now but whats the best way to tell i fits AC or DC? O.o

Oh, and I ordered this - http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/9/195/15302/ITEM/Moose-Racing-Volt-Pack-Regulator.aspx
