Two of my customers work for CREE and we have discussed it, but right now it is to much money.

The stator is rated for 200 watts max. The combined load of the lights and grip warmers is 170 watts, getting pretty close but allowing enough to run the ignition with some to spare. And I rarely run everything at once. So far about 8000 miles with no cooked stator, burned wiring, or failure to crank.
saw a couple of those lights in action, it was very poor. have you upgraded bulbs and/or reflectors ?

It is as it came. This is the offroad model which has a higher output high beam. A lot of how a light appears can be from how it is aimed. When the X2 is installed per the instructions, it sits right on the fender, the fender actually cuts off part of the foreground lighting. It may be aimed to low or way to high. I did not even try it that way because I wanted it up higher and further out.
Could also be a quality control issue. For the money I am pretty happy with it.

KLX Project

Hi Guys, I am reassembling a basket case KLX-400R and wanted to log the current jetting before running the bike. I am a little confused as this is the first time I have had a FCR open.

This one is obviously the main jet, marked 142.


Now the confusion. Is this the pilot, marked 65?


If that one is the pilot, what's this one, marked 45?

Read through here for jetting:

I believe the 45 is the pilot, 65 is idle. I doubt you'll need to change those, though.

Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe the 65 is the 'starter'(choke) jet.

I bought an old FCR slant recently to install on my DRZ. While you've got it off the bike check the accel pump diaphram and the o-ring under the float 'plunger' thing (not sure what the correct term is for it). On my old FCR both needed replacing. Eddie said that's typical after lots of use with ethanol fuel on older bikes.

Question for Numbers

I'm just about to buy a Lynx Fairing, as you say with the lights they seem like a good deal, but what do you mean by a bi-module? Is this it:
http://www.hella.com/MicroSite/soe/s...Premium_GB.pdf

or this:
http://www.myhellalights.com/index.p...adlamp-module/

Not sure whether to go the HID upgrade, Halogen or the LED option, any thoughts on this would be appreciated....Cheers,

Edit, just looked at the price Led $1400 Pair Halogen $240 pair (that's better).

Not that I am recommending anyone else do it, but I have been running the warmers(on a mix of low and hi) and the lights(lo and hi all the time, sometimes the Hella) since the beginning of Dec, five or six days a week, about an hour and half a day. I would have to check my oil change records, but around 4000 miles(Just the lights a lot longer than that). If I had any problems I would post them.

Bi-halogen light

G'day Numbers,

Just checked out that link, they want $108 extra for the ECE left hand traffic version , which is presumably the one I want. I'm going to ask Ian at Brittania Composites if he might be able to substitute one in to the Linx kit.

I wonder how 2 Bi-Halogens on Hi/Low might compare with your Hid driving light () and Bi-Halogen Hi/Lo?

Cheers for the advice,

Adrian

Last questions about lights in Oz.....

All good info Numbers

So are you saying that it's illegal to have 2 lights on low beam in Oz, on a motorbike?

However given the good cut off, I think I'll price up Bi-halogens converted to HID in the 4200k range, with the next option as one HID driving light and one standard Bi-halogen, as you first suggested.

Cheers,

Adrian

Since we're talking about lights, here's my Denali D2 LED's. Expensive yes, but priceless to be able to see that well! 10 watts each on high, they're wired into the main lights, and I recently reversed the main lights, so the regular hi is on low, and the orange one and flood are on high. My only real beef with these lights is the main on/off switch, which stopped functioning after about three weeks.....I need to talk to DSP and see if they can get me a new one....Thankfully it stopped functioning in the on position! otherwise great product.

I dug through some cards and found these two photos of the low beam, I think the bridge one is low, I could be wrong.... I'll have to take some more shots sometime...

Thanks. That aluminum MSR plate looks good.

So the smaller rear tire will be a bit more lively? Sounds good to me.
