Adding lights to a KLX400 (DRZ400)

Want to add some lights to the 03' KLX400. I'm worried about over-drawing the stator. I have a 100w Baja Designs light. Plus turn signals, running light, horn, brake LED, and rear running light. I feel like that puts me at:

100w halogen headlight
~15w? halogen running light
10-20w LED turn signals
horn?
10w-20w LED brake light
10w rear LED running light
160-170w??? total

Idk how much spark plug takes up. But I seem to be near the 200w limit running everything of course but even adding 2 50w lights would have me limited.

Any suggestions? Would get the upgrade 240w stator but I feel like the extra 40w wouldn't do much...

I would like to add 2 side mount lights off my front forks (PIAAs?)

HID headlight

I got a HID headlight kit off eBay for around $30.

It only draws less than 30 watts, and does hi/low beam.

I was looking for one for my DR650SE, but should work OK on the KLX.

Bright as heck too!

$30? nice! Did it come with the conversion kit and everything? Easy to install etc..? How many hrs do you have on it so far? aka how long do they last?

HID kit

Kit came with everything... dual element bulb, wiring harness, power box, etc.

You run new power leads to the box, uses existing switches and wiring to control power.

Hate to say it, but I haven't gotten around to installing it!

Too many bikes to maintain... and I've been wondering where to hide the power pack. Might put it on my Versys.....

nice man. I imagine the headlight works well too? You seem to spare no expense on your build. 9/10 times you get what you pay for right! Very nice bike!
