Headlight options

the headlight and shell on my WR have multiple problems and are in need or replacement.

I will probably get the complete unit from moto plastic usa but thought I would ask if there are any better alternatives. Has anyone used any of the aftermarket universal lights? Would anyone happen to know if the 09 will work with a 06 frame?


What do you want the light to do?

I like the Acerbis twin halogen for 'minor' night riding. I run one flood pattern and one spot pattern to maximize it's effectiveness. I also like the security of having a 'back up' if one bulb burns out.

For 'real' night time riding, I run an 8" halogen with a 55/60w xenon bulb. I combine this with a 20w halogen helmet light. I can run both of these lights off the stock stator or run the helmet light off of a battery pack to give light when the bike is off.

It doesn't have to do much as I don't ride at night. If it saved much weight I would probably pull it off. It's nice to have in case I ever get caught out too late and it makes me more visible. It has to survive being used to push a lot of brush and limbs every ride. It should be as cheap as possible to replace as I don't expect it to last real long.

I replaced the stock unit with a Polisport light - works great, very similar in style to the OEM, light portion is virtually identical and the complete unit costs only about $40-$50 - and I found the Polisport plastic headlight shroud to be far less brittle than OEM.

Let me know if you need help sourcing one.

The Polisport look nice. Where can I get one?

Do they use the stock wire connectors?


The leads from the Husky harness plug directly into the Polisport light (either into the main light with hi/low beam or onto the leads for the independent running light) - I generally just use the small "running light" which shines just enough to appease the local authorities.

I searched TT and found Polisport body plastic, but no headlights. I will post a Canadian link, but I'm unsure if the moderators will allow it. If need be, I can get one here and mail it to you.


Canadian version


Choose "Motorcycle" catalogue

Choose "Parts & Accessories" catalogue

Search "Polisport"

I believe it is on page 276.

I think this is the correct TT version:


Trail tech has a new headlight out that Ride told me about. I don't remember which model it is, but you can check on their website or call Ride when he gets back in town next week.

Not to Hi-jack this thread but my stock connectors are shot or missing. Does anyone know where to find the same ones?

I have the same problem...the last guy cut em off and changed them.

I hvae been meaning to go into radioshack and see what they have. Easy for wires to get pinched up there.


Search for part no. 37-202-2

These are similar or identical to the (Molex?) units used on KTMs, and also similar to the JST (Japanese Solderless Terminal) system used on Asian machines.

I got them here: http://www.neutronelectronics.com/

They are only a few bucks a pack. I believe that Trail-tech also has similar products.

You need to have the proper crimping tool, but once you've got it, it's way faster and easier than soldering.

These are ideal as they are sealed: http://www.weatherpack.com/

But I've not found a local source.

What options are available (headlight) for a '08 cr125?

You need a WR ignition to run lights. There has been mention on here of re-winding the stator to put out more juice for lights.

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Rider Starts his Quest to Defend Cross-Country Rallies World Championship
      March 15, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla will re-start his 2018 international rally racing campaign on March 24 to 29 at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge in the United Arab Emirates. Working hard towards returning to full competitive fitness following a foot injury sustained during the closing stages of the Dakar Rally, Pablo’s teammate Andrew Short is expected to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad at the 2018 Merzouga Rally in mid-April.

      With the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge playing host to the opening round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the event in the UAE will see Pablo Quintanilla begin the defence of his FIM Cross-Country World Championship title. Securing eighth overall at the 2018 Dakar Rally in January, the Chilean rally star is already looking forward to a solid return to racing aboard his FR 450 Rally machine.
      Successfully wrapping up his debut participation at the prestigious Dakar Rally with a top 20 result, Andrew Short has been recuperating from a fractured tibia and fibula on his lower right leg. Resuming his training sessions in the middle of March, the American has his eyes set on making a return to racing at the Merzouga Rally on April 15/20, in the dunes of Morocco.
      Celebrating its 28th edition in 2018, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is a six-stage-long rally taking place in the southern part of the United Arab Emirates. Kicking off with the traditional Super Special Stage on Saturday, March 24, the event will continue with five more days of racing in the Liwa Desert before competitors reach the finish line inside the Yas Marina circuit on March 29, 2018.

      Pablo Quintanilla: “Abu Dhabi will be our first race after the Dakar and I’m really looking forward to it. It’d be good to start the season carrying the #1 plate on my Husqvarna as the reigning champion. With it being the first race for the new season, it is important for everybody. My goal is to get a good race pace from the beginning in order to be inside the group of leading riders. The season will be long and my plan is to continue improving my pace as the racing goes on. I want to get back my racing speed and also remain strong throughout the event in Abu Dhabi. Taking place in deep sandy dunes, the Desert Challenge is always a tough event and it is also highly probable that we will have to race in high temperatures. It’s going to be a challenge but I’m looking forward to it.”

      Looking for some Wiring Harness, Connections and Installation assistance for installing a Tusk Universal Under the Fender LED Taillight with Brake Light on a Husqvarna 2017 TX300
      The UTFLight comes with a plastic connector that would work with the tusk enduro lighting kit which i'll be removing so that I can plug into the stock harness.
      I've been told the stock harness is the same as what would be included on the TE Model, minus the actual headlight/taillight being present; which is the case for the headlight wiring . it's all there ready to go.  For the taillight/brakelight however there is a bit more to be done.  There are NO wires running to the rear of the bike or within the SubFrame as some have noted
      I'll need to run to existing wires, and could use some guidance for which connectors are needed, if a supplementary harness is required(if so which one) and which wires to connect to on the existing harness.  There is very limited info in the manual (for either bike: TE/TX) or complete color harness diagram with info and connector information anywhere that I could find.
      I also picked up the Tusk Brake Switch Banjo bolt for the Brembo brakes (two wire, bullet connectors) - https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/docs/Brake switch instructions.pdf 
      On the Brake side under the front/bottom of gas tank near radiator there is an existing connector (I think for radiator fan) and from it, two unused wires, I would say for tapping into the existing harness.  1 Solid Brown, 1 Yellow/Red - 
      Shifter side, near the bottom rear of tank I found taped up cylinder style connector (Someone can enlighten me) i think switch wires ? maybe some terminator,  each with the same color wire in as out.  One is Gray/Black and the other White/Black
      Under the cdi box is a three plug connector with two wires, 1 Brown and 1 White, third unused- i was hopeful this could be the tail light connector but am unsure
      Help on harness, connector names /types and setup is very much appreciated
