ok since we're on the topic of lightings...I need help on mine....

My bike should be the european version...with all the wiring for lightings comes from factory.I am dumb about the watts or power output that the stock stator provides.
Recently I've completed on the fairing project part2,everything is in running order including the signals,tailights,horn...except the headlite is super dim..I am using Honda CBR400 stock headlamps,and downsize the bulbs from 55/60 to 35/30.
Previously,I used a Honda XR400Sm headlite,and it's bright....

Advice please....What should be the best way upgrades for me to take?BAJA design high output stator?


CHeers,
AJ

I want to add some extra candles to my setup , i like this new stuff from BD http://www.bajadesigns.com/ProductDe...mNumber=640241
Just not sure about the positioning , i was thinking under the main light , but then the front mudguard might get it the way

Thanks for the reply! I'll rip in to the carb here in the next few weeks when I can let the XRR have some down time and report back with my findings.

I've heard great things about the Baja Designs stator but personally, I'd grab a Ricky Stator unit, mainly because the owner will stay on the phone with you and spend time answering your questions and will help solve problems. RS's customer support, IMO, is stellar.

Also, talk to Darryl at Cyclops about lens housings options for your fairing. He'll be able to steer you in the right direction and he's a super cool guy to boot!

I think the Ricky stator is a plug and play in the US bikes but not so in the Euro bikes. Like the look of the fairing/light/guard set there AJ, nice.

Capt E,
Looks like you have a pair of budding road race and off road racers in the making.
Great pic.

Enjoy.

There's any AC LED for my XR?


Plug & play... no battery needed... plenty of light... great wind protection also...

a fool and his $$$$

Time for an introduction - bought a project - '95 XR600R street legal and currently licensed. knew it was gonna be a rebuild, didn't know it was gonna be as much of one as I do now.

Haven't ridden dirt in 25 years, been riding Sportbikes, need to save that nonsense for the track, so I got this to do some fire roading and easy trail riding.


3rd gear is jacked up, little end of the rod is galled, found lotsa nice copper shavings in the oil tank screen, frame needs some welding (kickstand bracket) and looks like it's been welded on before. Suspension feels good, so that's a plus. Pretty much every bearing is gonna need to be replaced.

Cam & Rockers don't look too bad, though there is a lot of carbon on the valves & piston crown. Imagine at least new valve springs, piston, rings, rod etc. Should have done a leak-down test before we tore it apart, but the valves don't appear to leak (sprayed a bunch of carb-clear in the ports and nothing wept by the valves)

Any and all advise, recommendations, pointers etc, gladly accepted!

here's a pic of the beast after we stripped it.
