stock bulp on mine was a 35watt
i replaced it with a 45watt and it works nice
maybe i should try a 55watt.

a new stator is the best option i think

For 05XRR

Post  thouk on Fri Aug 20, 2010 7:37 pm

Hey 05XRR,
I am doing about the same thing for my X. I bought the headlight assembly from a Big Ruckus. I want to make or buy a nice mount for the assembly. Could you send me some more pictures of your mounting to my email address? It is houk27 at yahoo dot com. Thanks, Tony

This bike looks really nice!!! Ive got the X2 as well but just halogen. I want to see more pictures of the headers. I think I want some like those but I have the IMS 4.6 and am not sure if i can have headers come down the left side of the bike like that. Also what is different about the intake tube that i see. I am not able to PM yet so I hope supriserider sees this.

more X2 pics

Just got done test fitting my new light today. This seemed the best place to post the pics....


(Protective film is still on the light as I'll be taking it off again for wiring etc...)
Clearances at steering full lock left and right:


Back clearance:

The straps are a bit loose, I may have to shim it around the fork tubes or try using the stock light straps. Sad

Can't wait until I get all my parts in and can wire it up! Smile

Here is the light I mounted on my XR behind the headlight shell. I love it. Super bright and under $50.
1800 lumen @ 1.5 amps

I got them from DDM Tuning right next to my house in Huntington Beach, Ca.
http://www.ddmtuning.com/Product-Categories/Off-Road-LED

Fabbed up a quick little mount


Fits great. Just need to get some thin black plastic and fill in the sides around the light


@Mauser....We do with what we can afford. Not the prettiest but works great !

Been doing a lot of night riding. Very very happy with the outcome. This light is very bright and lights up the sides of the trails pretty decent too.

This is my actual setup but i'll improve it with another extra led side by side for night race competitions.

I've use SOLO X vision LED light and work great:

Frosty, this a 15º light (similar to a maximum light). I'll be adding a 45º (medium).

I have no comparison to 2 x 5" HID light but works great for me.
