I've got a friend who wants to get into night riding and just picked up an 08 Beta 450RR. It's a sweet bike. He is not much of a computer guy so I'm asking. While it has a light, like all stock bikes it's really only good for limping back to the camp if it gets dark. For real night use a HID conversion is a minimum. It looks like the stock light is only 35 watts and a HID needs about 43 watts of DC. I've looked at everything I can find, but I still need a little more info so I can figure out if this is a possibility. What kind of bulb does it use? Is it one of the BA20d base types like the KTM's run? I see that it is a single phase coil that supplies both the AC lighting and the DC for the battery. How many watts is the bike rated for? How many watts can you run on the DC side of the regulator? Any high output aftermarket stators available? Can you use a KTM stator? Thanks for any info anyone can give.
