I have a light bar that is supposed to draw 42w running pretty much straight off the rec/reg. have run it a few times in a couple of hours stints and hasn't broken yet.

... the XR is the greatest off road motorcycle ever constructed. There's nothing it can't do, hasn't won or will not outperform.

I don't know what wattage they are. A mate got 'em for me while he was in Canada.

Here's a pic of what they look like. Jetco is the brand, and I don't see them in their online products list.

Yes, standard stator. The only time I've ever considered a stator upgrade was whilst negotioating the Vic High Country & Kosciusko NP in the snow & ice. Hmmm, heated grips would be nice I thought. Snapped out of it pretty quickly though. Not an option for a bloke whose mantra is Keep it Stock.

From Jetco Site

Part #: 123-80000S-8 Spot version
Part #: 123-80000F-8 Flood Version

Do you you have the floods or the spots Smithy?

Nice one DustyJohn. They are the spots.

http://jetcolighting.com/?q=node/203

So, would these be considered a relatively low current / power draw light compared to others?

0.31 amps each is a very low current. Combined the two lights are only using about 8 watts of power in a 12v system.

That's a good result then I'd say. How do you work that wattage stuff out?

I'll have a look for Montana GPS current draw, then we'll know the total.

The GPS worked a treat, except vibrations got to it a bit on the higher revs sections. I used the Ram cradle and wiring package, and it wasn't isolated at all really, just a u-bolt around the bars. Am in the process of modifying a Nolathane sway bar bush from my falcon. Plan is to just slip the same ram u-bolt over the bush and give it a try on the next ride.

volts divided into watts = amps

eg:

12 volts / 6 watts = .5 amp

12 volts / 12 watts = 1 amp

12 volts / 24 watts = 2 amps

12 volts / 100 watts = 8.33 amps

24 volts / 100 watts = 4.16 amps

240 volts / 100 watts = 0.416 amps

Was going to ask if it was the Montana . Isolating vibration can be tricky with a ram mount. Another option would be to use a hydraulic pipe mount on the handle bars then the Ram Mount which would isolate some of the vibration?

Cheers Glen. I'll remember that one.

John, hydraulic pipe mount indeed could be the answer. I'll try Nolathane and see what happens. It's such a pretty red.

Yeah a few people on the recent ride suggested the Touratec setup. Broke up the visa card a few weeks ago.

I hope you didn't spend much time or money on the cush hub conversion because the XRR already has a cush drive that is the best ever made...it's on the clutch.






Have you ridden it much with the double cush? Seems like it might have a lot of drivetrain slop now?
