Lighting kit for 05 YZ250


Recommended Posts

I would love to be able to run lights on my YZ250 (soon to be a 300!) since michigan changed their rules. To ride on the roads between trails I have to run head and tail lights now, so I want to be able to do this without a battery. Where can I get a stator that will be powerful enough to run head and tail lights? Ideally they would actually put out enough light to light the trail if I wanted to do night riding, but anything would be ok with me at this point.

Thanks!

We just got that rule as well, you can get away with it by buying the cheapest flashlight and duct taping it to your handlebars, same goes for the rear :banana:

But yea if you want to do a nice job there is only one stator that can go all out without a battery and run a nice light, it's something like 4-500$ though.

I think it was eline

Either E-Line or Rickystator. One of them has one. They are in the 400 to 500 dollar range.

Not according to their website. They don't make one for the 03+ YZ250's.

I did find this though:

But 45 watts isn't much... HOWEVER: Acerbis does make that LED headlight kit, one that is DOT approved, one that isn't... and it looks sweet:

But that doesn't leave any power for a rear light....

That light uses regular filament bulbs for projecting light, the LED's are more for show or so others can see you, they don't have any reflectors to project the light. Think of the 99 cent LED lights next to every cash register out there, they are bright has heck to look at, but do not focus the light, so they are weak when shined at an object 20 feet away.

45 watts is pretty weak, but will power a std 35 watt head light and an LED tail. Make the head light a high/low beam, make the tail light a brake/tail, add a tiny mirror and a squeezy horn and you have yourself a licensable bike in Michigan. Just don't try to go to Caro Secretary of State to get the title changed from "off-road only". Even if you print out and bring in all the forms it will still take 3 people nearly 2 hours to get you thru, and you will be told a dozen times that it cannot be done, even though you have the forms and police officer inspection in your hands!

:banana:

That was a KDX, I'd still love to get my YZ plated. My bike is at my parents right now while we house hunt (just moved back from out of state). They live ~1/2 mile from the trail head, and I have to truck it there.

I got mine set up for Michigan roads this year, just took it to Sicass Racing, they hooked it all up, looks nice and works well.
Top-notch job on that bike, nuudle!

Sicass Racing doesn't list a kit for the YZ 2-strokes on their website. Did they install their Universal kit on your bike (it uses a battery)?

No battery, it's got a limited power stator but it works. I believe it's what they call their universal kit, I think the headlight is Acerbis. It won't give you much light at low RPM but it's got a cool looking LED tailight/brakelight. I think it is around $500 installed and they include a rechargeable battery style horn.

How easy it is to remove to go back to MX setup? Can you actually ride at night or is it a kit to just meet the law?
