New Stator - higher watts

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced the stock stator with one with higher wattage?  I am looking at a Trail Tech that bumps it up from 30 watts to 70 watts.  I am adding a headlight, taillight and Trail Tech gauge.  Just wondering if more juice would help.

It absolutely will help. I have 2 TrailTech and 1 Baja Designs stator equipped Dual Sport 230s. Both work great. They will allow you to run brighter lighting systems without draining the battery.

ST O.D.

I've been wondering what the output of our OE stator was.

Wow, 30watts, that's not much.

 

I still see lighting kits online that use incandescent or halogen bulbs, 30watt ish.

Are people still using these and not LED?

That's crazy!

Especially on a vehicle which is so power limited.

 

Anybody using heated accessories like grips, gloves, vests or handguard thingys etc. ?

I will be investing in something heated for my hands before attempting to ride next winter, maybe even something for my feet.  Insulation just isn't enough.  I don't suppose there are any new advancements in heating elements for improved efficiency.
