I had a cheap set up on my bike for a few night rides. it's a rigid industries 1900 lumens led flood. as you can see, it's much brighter than the OEM high beam below it. OEM led. Cost was $50

Yes, but the 610 has a stator that can run a good bit, however that light only uses 27 watts.

I don't want to catch flak for posting on the R thread and being a husqy guy, but I saw the talk about lights and though you guys might like this one. It worked well and is a solid unit for $50 or even less delivered.

This is all I can find looks like the Ridgid industries isn't selling these any more. I got mine last year, but these seem to be the same thing.

Look at this on eBay:

1pcs 27W watt LED Work Light Lamp Truck Like Rigid Polaris Jeep ATV UTV Tractor

http://bit.ly/13CUqY0

Last year these said ridgid industries and now they say "like" ridgid industries.
Looks like the same one I got and at over 2000 lumens in water proof case for the money it's a good deal, but hey, what's a Husqy guy know anyway? Lol.

What's this world coming to when we allow HUSKY guys in our thread...

Also check out the toyota and many other forums for 10-20% off lights with group buy for chinese LED. You could get one for cheaper than 60$ for sure.

toyota-4runner.org
Toyotanation
I8Mudd.com
tacomaworld, etc.

They have big group buys going on one after another pretty much. The guy doing it can be trusted and saves you a few bucks to sign up to the forum.

Thankfully LED is coming down in price. The huge benefits are instant on, low power consumption with a reasonably good (great compared to halogen) output. Another big benefit is they are pretty damn durable. Great for motorcycle use.

Plating dirt bikes is pretty new in Washington just became legal last year.

This bike is going to be fun.

Lookin good. I run 16/45 Steel sprockets when running 17's. Works good. The XRR will tear that aluminum rear up in no time. Also you can use the same chain length going from dirt(13/48) to sumo(16/45)

Question Xrs only front wheel replacement collar?

I'm looking for some info on this item. I recently bought a BRP and removed the front wheel to check the bearings. When I went to install it back on, the xrsonly collar that came with the bike has a gap between the seal and collar. The collar reduces down as it goes into the seal. The outer section is bigger than the seal opening. Maybe I'm missing something, but that bearing will be toast in no time. I didn't pay attention to it before removing it so I'm lost. I can't find a picture of it installed on the bike anywhere online.
Help please.

Here it is!

That sounds good thanks. i think some may have not noticed the 17s I'm running.

The aluminum sprocket was basically free with the wheels so I figured I would just go ahead and use it to see where I am on gearing. I will buy a steel sprocket when I get it sorted out.

I agree. I have a pair of DDM HIDs in my Hella 500s. Super bright and they have been working for over 3 years. I also have a BD LED light bar, I have been happy with it operation. I installed the light bar before the 24 hour race a few months ago so time will tell how well its made. The cost on the LED bar is 10X the HID mod.
