Do a search for Baja Designs Squadron to get all the details you could need.

The difference is massive, output is amazing for the small size, light weight and low draw. Lifetime warranty, too.

You will definitely need an LED dimmer controller for it if you want to use it on roads with other vehicles.

That's an awesome picture. How did you pull a wheelie at 44 MPH and manage to capture a picture of it yourself?

It is not very hard if you have a GoPro with a chest mount. Just take a still image from the video. It is not very hard even at 94 KPH.

ZaJules has much better resolution, though

KTM 690 sm/smc rims (all years works), with enduro brakediscs.
All you have to do is to cut the fork guards to fit the wider rim.
