WR250R Install

Got my lights installed yesterday. Here's some pictures of how my install went on my WR250R.

Installed the dimmer on my HDB Top Plate. Was gonna wire in a fancy button switch, but since that has an "off" detent, figured might as well just use the Rotary Dial to control everything.


I attached it with Velco in case I need to move it later.


Used the reflector mounts to mount the lights. Clears the shrouds just fine here. Hopefully they aren't too vulnerable at this location.


Low - Just barely "On". Plan on using this setting during the day to help visability. Note can turn lights off, by just turning the dial to "Off".


High - Tied into High Beams, so Clicking my High Beam Switch turns these on full 100% (Aka High Beam Bypass). Can also just turn the dial up 100%to have them on 100% regardless of dimmer switch setting. Note - The headlight is "Off" right now because the bike is not running. On WR's the light only comes on once you start the bike. Aux lights work on separate power - the High Beam Bypass does not work unless the bike is running, but the Dial still does to adjust the brightness.


So far, so good. Next step, test these suckers off road during the wet winter.
