Sweet! Nice looking bike too.

I'm familiar with setting the KTM four stroke RFS motor up for the street, meaning the electrical stuff; are the two strokes much different? Do you have enough amps to run a decent headlight?

Super easy with the Sicass Racing kit - it used all OEM connectors. It took longer to route wires and get them all stashed away.

The 250XC has a 200 watt stator. Seems to be plenty for this set up. It could probably run an HID light, but I was looking to stay stock and just meet the requirements.

My 300 runs the lights and heated grips with no problems.

Plated two stroke enduros with 200 watt stators may result in erections lasting more than four hours (or more!).

Wow. That's about double what I get out of my 520, with a DC conversion and rewind.

Baja designs has quite a bit of good info on what the stock ratings are for most dirt bikes charging systems, and what mods can be done to run thier differant products. If you purchase there rewind kit they can up that to 130W. 100Watts is more than enough. If KTM is putting 200watt alternators in some of it's dirt bikes perhaps Baja Designs needs to update its info.

Had my wife's 2009 KLX 140L inspected in Moses Lake at Experience Powersports. Zero help from local Spokane dealerships (which is probably why I buy all of my vehicles out of town). Inspection was done at the end of March and had the plate in hand the beginning of April.

Baja Designs kit http://www.bajadesigns.com/
Reflective stickers and fender extension from http://www.coyoteoffroad.com/
Clamp on mirrors from http://www.soloracer.com
Kenda tires (DOT tires are a bit difficult to find for 19/16-inch front/rear wheels)

Keep in mind that regardless of stator ratings, it must put out enough at idle for the headlight to meet the output requirements.

Not "the business", but I really enjoy the build process, and if that premium allows me to fund future bikes, then it is a way to self fund a hobby.

10-4...I thought you may have purchased it from someone who was performing the mods. Self funding hobbies is good thing, especially when you are into orange.

Be careful how you explain it on the interweb.

Per 49USC30112 you must comply with 49CFR571 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) if the vehicle to built for the purpose of sale.

. . . . . and you DO NOT want to go there.
