Hey Guys and gals,
I am having an issue setting up my lights and I am not sure what I'm missing. I have a 2001 Honda XR650R that was "made" street legal by the previous owner. I'm trying to add in front blinkers and when I hook up my front blinkers all the lights dim and the front don't flash or even power up. I am lost as to what I am doing wrong or if the battery pack I'm using does not produce enough amps to run the system. I will link the parts I'm using below and a diagram of how I'm attempting to wire it. Any Ideas or help would be much appreciated. Not sure on the Amp draw or limit on the items been digging just no luck as to what is being used or produced as of yet (blew my amp fuse in my meter being a dummy).

http://a.co/9F5rcRT The Front Blinkers (shown to use 5.4w on 12v so I think about .5A)
http://a.co/gQ1OTf7 Brake and blinker combo (25w so about 2.1A)
http://a.co/2JRKUTj Horn (shown to use 1.5A)
http://a.co/1i6wwGk Battery it produces 12v 15A output

So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
Right now the bikes I am between are:
2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.

Looking for a Showa A-kit for a 02-07 CR125/250. Also on the hunt for any and all HRC parts.
I have a 2007 CRF250R, just got the head rebuilt, new piston and cylinder, new timing chain, shims are in spec, air fuel mixture is correct, carb has a boyeson quickshot3, just found out yesterday when I tore it apart, the leak jet was turned all the way in, could that be the problem? timing is perfect, new ignition coil. Starts first kick when cold but once it gets to operating temp and I’ve been riding for a few minutes it is nearly impossible to start back unless I bump start it...any tips or ideas on what could be wrong with it?
