LED Headlight Modification

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a 2006, CRF450X and I would like up upgrade/modify the OEM headlight to a brighter LED headlight.  Any thoughts or ideas??  I would like it to be as "Plug en Play," as possible 

Thanks

Look at Baja Designs.   They have a number of solutions.

Also be aware that the stock light is AC....LED's require DC, so you'll need to convert the current system in some way for an LED setup to work.

best bang for the buck

I have their older 3600 lumen on my bike. 300% improvement, it's good enough to get you home in the dark and not break your neck. Would I race with it, NOPE, the OEM lensing is has poor optic qualities. 

I would call them to double check. You will also need rectifier if you are planing to use the stock (AC) charging system. You can PM me if you want mine, I have since gone with a high output charging system, which i should have just done in the first place.

That's a lot of $$ for a LED light.. 

That's not alot for a quality light, built for the rigors of off road riding, that is weatherproof and throws an excellent light pattern... especially one that doesn't require a stator rewind.

This is what I added to my L, very bright, low voltage, 2 years now riding every day! No one has blinked me for too bright, maybe they are too polite! Aliexpress has some great stuff, never had a problem!!
