HID needs DC - just wire straight to battery ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been reading around about HID headlights and that these require DC power - which often means a new stator and other complicated mods. But, I was wondering, can one simply wire the HID light to the battery and include and on/off switch ( and a fuse ) ? My bike is a 2001 520 EXC. Would the stock stator keep the battery charged if the HID is drawing less than 30 watts ?

I'm not sure what the 520 EXC output is.

Baja Designs has a chart that says ' Dual 25/100 '. It's on page 24 at this link -

yes that would be fine. How eveer if you were to try and run hids with just a stator you would blow the transformer for the hid system.
