headlight project crf230 ?

Recommended Posts

So heres my plan:

grab power from blk wire coming from the ignition (key) switch to a fuse?.

from the fuse to a light switch.

from light switch to the low beam only on the light (35w).

of course find a good ground for the light.

but not sure what amp fuse to use 5amp? :naughty:

Any help and ideas would be great, thanks!

If you grab power for your lighting from the switched black wire, your system will already be fused via the bike's stock 7.5A fuse. Running a separate fuse any larger than this is waste of time as the smaller stock one will always blow first. A 35W bulb pulls just under 3A (35/12.5) so if you do run a separate fuse, 5A would be good. That way if your lighting system developes a short it'll blow the smaller 5A fuse first and you won't lose your e-start.
