If you get the Edge taillight, do yourself a favor and seal the lense and the holes where the wiring goes through the housing with silicon caulk. My two year old taillight just had to have a new resistor soldered to it because the taillight quit working. The brake light never failed though.

Agreed



If you're out in stuff like this - skip the Edge. As threadkiller notes, sealing issues. Imagine it can be sealed, but water finds a way - I prefer simple. Lotta slop here, regularly, couple riders have had problems with the Edge. May not be its intended use tho. Plate mod was free

4 years no issues with a full Trick Dualsport kit the UFO. Replaced the bulbs with LEDs - per Blaster11 post - we'll see how they hold up. Brighter tho.

Stock bulb

LED replacement
I did the same to mine...big difference

Those are them - I ordered from a local Advanced Auto IIRC - get the big box autoparts store confused. Figure most can get them.

Anyone swapped out the 1157 with an LED? Hows it throw?

Thinking something like this after a few false starts

stock S gearing: 15/44
stock E gearing: 14/47
stock SM gearing: 15/41 (which, with the smaller SM wheel works out to about the same as 15/44 on the S)

for trail riding, imho, dropping the stock S gearing to 14/47 (like the E) is much, much better. 15/44 is too high for tight trails. i also like 14/47 better around the city (where speeds are generally under 50mph and you are doing lots of accelerating at lower speeds).

14/47 does mean you'll be revving higher at highway speeds, though, so there is a trade-off. (i do still cruise at 65 with mine at 14/47, but the engine is up in the RPM range.)

a lot of people seem to like to compromise at 15/47 or 14/44 which are about equivalent (1 tooth on the front is about equal to 3 teeth on the back) and puts you in between the stock S and stock E gearing.

Nice post.
On my DRZ 400S
I am running the 13/44; moral equivelant of the 14/47.
The new sprockets sitting on the bench are the 47 Rear, moving back and forth from 15 to 13.
this will require a 114link chain.

+2, GREAT POST.

i like 15/44 on my S, still climbs anything out on the trails, and hits 95+ mph on the way home.

I got 15/48 on my E, it seems perfect to do it all, from climbing any rocky uphill with ease to freeway ride at ~78 mph.

Im at 15/47 and i personally think the revs are too high to sustain cruising at 78-80mph.

Currrently trying to find a chain to go 15/41 for street duty
