2003 CR125 Lighting coil and/or battery powered headlight advice

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I decided to pull an old light off a snowblower I found at school today in the shop and try and mount it on the number plate of my 125. Anyways I got it to work alright but still ghetto. I have two options: run it with what i have right now or get a lighting stator. trouble is, its seems really hard to find a lighting coil for this year and model.what i have right now is in the pics. But to basically explain it, i attached the light with the hardware that i ripped off the blower, then ran it to a 6 volt lantern battery to test it and it worked. Then i tried 12v and it was pretty good and i assume that is what the light is intended to run at. Trouble again is that those batteries are big and i dont think i can mount it anywhere convenient on the bike except the air box. But i really dont wanna do that because i have found this to be an air starved motor. And its heavy. Anyways. I have done it with a nine volt and it works. Very light obviosly. And it is perfect to mount inside my bar pad foam. But since it doesnt last that long i was planning to just carry like 4 9vs when i went on a huge ride. Then i tried 2 nine volts in series to make it 18v. I was afraid ot was gonna blow but slowy i tested it and seems brighter and not humming etc. And thats all i have so far. So either that or a lighting stator are my options. I just want to know if the 18 volts will hurt it and if the 9vs are a good idea. Sorry for the wall of text just trying to be specific. Thanks.

I can sell you a pair of mtn bike batteries that weigh almost nothing. They will drive it. I can also sell you a kickass led that will be much brighter much longer. Let me know

See my thread:

This is the stator that you need.

But you can't get one anymore. Better is a rewind from RickyStator for a low power LED system.

I have seen that stator before in my searching. And thanks for that thread. Ive seen you on the forums with your 6-speed tranny. And im usually not out after dark so I dont even need the tail light or anything, i just want the headlight for occasional home after dark rides. I think im going to try the tusk 12 volt enduro replacement battery and even tho i dont have that specific kit i think im gonna rewire it to work with a convential light and switch. I might try this light i have and see but im probably going to resort to a custom led setup of my own design lol. And that battery is rechargable so thats a plus.

I've got battery packs of 4 cells each or 6 cells each. The packs are 7.4v each. I run a 20 watt light bar off 2 packs for about 2-3 hours. Its brighter than brights on a car

For a total of around 15 volts? That sounds adequet. And 2-3 hours is good (Im guessing this light isnt even 20 watts so thats a plus.) Do you have a pic of that LED you have for sale?

Grab a 3cell 5000Mah Lipo battery for Rc helicopters. Works great and is small enough to be mounted somewhere on the bike.

sorry for the long time to reply. But i really like this idea. Is there a specific brand or type that you would recommend? Also how do you charge them?
