Possibly a regulator/rectifier set up might be needed to accompany this.
I would only do this if you reeeaaalllly want more juice to run those lights though. As it probably would not be cheap unless you are hooked up with used parts.

true, I really need to run some accessories though. what about an additional battery to run my GPS and chargers that would just charge off of the bike but I wouldent let it get to low??

I was just trying to think like maybe a similar road bike might have the electronics to run more electric accessories, probebly not any dirt bikes.

Ive got one that i got from the German XT site. Theres a link there and you can pay $5 and the guy will set up a link for you to download the manual. I pretty much consider my manual invaluable. I wish i could figure out how to share it with others on here, but its about 13Mb and i have no idea how to send it.

don't know why I kept missing this thread

I've had an XT since they came over in 1976

as to the stator output, I run a silverstar bulb in the headlight, much brighter and whiter, a 35w fog light aimed closer for getting caught out in the woods after dark ... I also run a 75w jacket liner & 15w glove liners in winter ... and an LED 1157 replacement for the tail/stop light

at idle the only issue is the turn signals make the Daytek voltage monitor flash yellow as they come on, bump the idle a bit and it shows green.

first you need a way to monitor the system voltage so you can drop loads if it's not keeping up (>13v), like cut off the extra lights when you come to a stoplight, turn the jacket liner to a lower setting.

I'm looking at trailtech HIDs, they're small and only draw 30w, but put out >2500 luimens, but $$

your GPS will not make a difference, you're looking at mA (milliamps) of load there.

by the way I put a batteries plus sealed AGM in my 1995 6 years ago, I put a tender on it in winter if I don't ride it for a month or so ... cheaper than other batteries and a longer warranty.

oh, I'm an controls engineer in my other life

y'all come to the Asheville area ADV Dinner sometime, y'hear?

there's always yamaha for the manual and filters

I have a K&N so I can clean the air filter

the oil filters are the same as some viragos, the TDM850 (got one of those too) and a few others.

I FOUND IT!

This is where to go to get the XT600 service manual. This is a direct translated quote from the german XT site. I followed the directions exactly and got my manual, cost me $5. "Tincho" seems to be a really nice guy from my dealings with him.

Link

Quote:
The XT600E '96 Factory Service Manual in English is available from Mega Bikes. Basically they do a swop for a manual that they dont have, or you can send a small donation to download it.

Send a mail to mega.bikes@gmail.com requesting the manual you're after, and "Tincho" will let you how to download.

Hope this helps.

Wow, thanks a bunch for that info. that was what I was waiting for. Sounds like I should be ok, just have to get a monitor to make sure (might just strap my multimeter on for the time being) and I might switch to some led light to save power.

Are LEDs just as bright as halogens?

I'll be ordering one of these for mine. this is the cheapest place i could find such a complete meter...

LED's and Halogens are tough to compare. LED's dont broadcast light as well as halogens. LED's are better as marker lights where halogens are better as headlights.
